The Lowdown: Guedes impressed last term
Having joined the La Liga outfit on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and then on a permanent £36m transfer in 2018, the Portugal international has made 177 appearances for Valencia, with 36 goals and 30 assists to his name at the Mestalla.
The 25-year-old made 36 league appearances last season, impressively scoring 11 goals and producing six assists for a team who finished ninth.
The Latest: Agreement reached
Percy has shared an update on Wolves’ pursuit of Guedes, revealing that agreement has been reached on a £27.5m swoop for the ‘long-term target’, with a medical due to take place on Monday.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday evening, the reliable journalist claimed: “#Wolves have now total agreement on a £27.5m deal to sign Valencia striker Gonçalo Guedes, who will have a medical on Monday. A long-term target for Bruno Lage. Personal terms all sorted #wwfc“
The Verdict: Fantastic
When looking at Guedes’ underlying statistics, it is easy to see why Bruno Lage is so keen on bringing the forward to Molineux this summer.
As per FBRef, compared with positional peers across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year, the 25-year-old ranked in the 95th percentile for progressive passes, the 94th percentile for dribbles completed and the 93rd percentile for progressive carries.
Would Guedes be a success at Wolves?
Guedes has previously been described as “fast, irreverent and unpredictable” by legendary Portuguese winger Luis Figo, so Wolves fans will surely be delighted that the 25-year-old appears to be on his way to the Black Country.
