Wolves: Journalist backs Bruno Lage to sign Goncalo Guedes

Wolves: Journalist backs Bruno Lage to sign Goncalo Guedes -Wolves News

According to Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor, Wolves will ‘probably go for’ Valencia forward Goncalo Guedes during the upcoming transfer window.

The Lowdown: Long-term Guedes interest

The 25-year-old first joined the Spanish giants in a £36m move from Paris Saint-Germain four years ago. He has since gone on to make 178 appearances at the Mestalla, scoring 36 goals and registering 30 assists during that time, as per Transfermarkt.

The Old Gold have been linked with a move for the Portuguese winger for quite a while now, and despite him still having just over 12 months remaining on his current contract, Valencia recently confirmed that they have suffered losses of €31.2m (£26.3m), so they might have no choice but to sell some of their most valuable assets this summer.

The Telegraph have also claimed that the Premier League outfit are to prioritise signing a new striker ahead of next season. The report stated that Wolves are ‘set to move’ for Guedes, who is a client of Jorge Mendes, an agent with very close links to Molineux.

The Latest: Guedes/Wolves links talked up

Taylor has suggested that he thinks Wolves are likely to view the 29-cap Portugal international as an ideal candidate to bolster their attacking ranks at Molineux, especially given the multiplicity of compatriots already in Bruno Lage’s squad.

He told GiveMeSport: “Goncalo Guedes is a player that they will probably go for. There’s been a long-standing interest in him, obviously he’s got that Portuguese connection; Joao Palhinha as well.”

Who scored Wolves' first Premier League goal of the season, barring own goals?

The Verdict: Competition for Jimenez

Should the £36m-rated talisman decide to make the move to Molineux, he is someone who could provide some strong competition for Raul Jimenez, who has been subdued in front of goal this season.

Along with Daniel Podence, the Mexican has been the club’s joint-highest scorer this term with just six goals each across all competitions. Guedes found the net on 13 occasions for Valencia in 2021/22 and even turned provider six times for his team-mates.

This highlights just how much of a difference the 25-year-old could make in Lage’s starting XI, and with the aforementioned Portuguese connection, it’s a deal that the Wolves manager should be looking to get over the line as soon as possible.
