New Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Bruno Lage could bolster his attacking options by sealing the signing of Goncalo Guedes, according to Express & Star reporter Luke Hatfield.
However, former Benfica boss Lage’s reign failed to get off to the perfect start as Wolves suffered a 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign.
Would Guedes be a success at Wolves?
After drawing a blank at the King Power Stadium, Wolves are pursuing a deal for Valencia winger Guedes and a bid could be submitted in a matter of days.
Guedes racked up seven goals and as many assists last season, while he was deployed as a second striker as Valencia got their La Liga campaign up-and-running with a 1-0 win over Getafe at the weekend.
Hatfield believes the 24-year-old Portugal international could be heading to Molineux.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “Guedes is obviously a really exciting player who has performed in Spain.
“He fits the mould of a Wolves signing. With Pedro Neto still being injured, it wouldn’t surprise me if they are maybe looking at bolstering that area.
“But he wouldn’t be cheap by any means because he’s always been someone who is rated really highly.”
