Express & Star reporter Luke Hatfield has called for Wolverhampton Wanderers to sign Goncalo Guedes even if Adama Traore fails to seal his exit.
Wolves appear poised to make a big-money bid for Valencia winger Guedes ahead of the transfer window closing next week.
Would Guedes be a coup signing for Wolves?
Guedes has started both of Valencia’s La Liga fixtures so far this season, although both of those outings have come in the centre forward role.
The interest comes while rumours of Adama Traore heading to Tottenham Hotspur continue to rumble on, with reports suggesting ex-Wolves chief Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to reunite with the Spain international by striking a loan deal with the view to a permanent £40million transfer.
But Hatfield has urged Lage to push through the move for Guedes regardless of whether Traore remains at the club.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “He has shown quality abroad and I think he’d be a good signing regardless of whether Traore was to leave Molineux.
“He fits the bill in terms of being an exciting, attacking player. The football Wolves have played at the start of the season has certainly given fans hope of a bit more excitement.
“I think he would be a fantastic signing for Wolves even if Traore doesn’t go.”
