Wolves have opened negotiations with Valencia for Goncalo Guedes, according to Portuguese journalist Pedro Almeida.
An offer between €20-25 million will apparently be enough to tempt the La Liga side to part with the 24-year-old, despite him having an absolutely remarkable release clause in his current deal.
Nuno’s side look to have stolen a march on West Ham and Everton, also named by Almeida as interested parties.
Valencia could make loss on Guedes
But it looks as if Los murcielagos are now entertaining realistic offers, with Guedes only able to contribute two La Liga goals this season and the financial impact of the pandemic hitting the club hard.
Transfer Tavern verdict
It’s worth noting just how much Valencia have struggled this season. Last year, they made it to the Champions League of Round 16, but there’s no prospect of European qualification this time around with Javi Gracia’s side languishing in 13th.
So Guedes shouldn’t be written off just because his own statistics are a little underwhelming – Cristiano Ronaldo is such a big fan of his compatriot he allegedly wanted him to replace Gareth Bale at Real Madrid. If Pedro Neto were to be prised away, Guedes could be an excellent replacement.
In other news, fans flocked to another transfer update on Monday.
