Wolves have joined the race to sign Valencia star Goncalo Guedes, according to reports.
Mendes the key
Guedes, who takes home a comfortable pay packet of £101k-per-week at the Mestalla Stadium, has only scored two goals and provided one assist from 19 appearances this season, picking up two man-of-the-match awards in the process (Whoscored).
Football Insider revealed that Wolves have the attacking midfielder securely in their sightings as part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s list of potential signings this summer.
The report added that Guedes is on the books of superagent Jorge Mendes and his Gestifute agency, which could play a key role in the move to the West Midlands being completed.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
On paper, this appears to be a signing that they can compete at a bargain rate considering the current goings-on at Valencia.
The problem that Wolves may have is convincing the player to join at a decreased salary. On his current wage, Guedes would automatically be Wolves’ highest earner which may disgruntle some current first-team figures.
Time will tell whether Mendes can flex his negotiating muscles and influence the Portuguese attacker to make the move to England.
