Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Rafa Mir continues to impress for his loan club SD Huesca this season.
The striker has netted 12 goals in 30 La Liga matches and his form has drawn attention from Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and Real Betis.
Valencia have been added to the mix and Super Deporte reported on Wednesday that Los Ches have ‘taken an interest’ in their former player.
Later that day, we relayed claims made in Spain that Valencia are looking to sell Gonçalo Guedes and Wolves ‘will try to sign him’ in the next market.
With the La Liga side having an interest in Mir and Nuno Espírito Santo’s side wanting to take the Portugal international, an exchange deal could be worked out, according to La Razón.
It’s claimed that a few days ago, the Premier League side ‘transcended’ their interest in the 26-year-old. With Valencia struggling financially, they can offer their forward to Wolves in exchange for Mir.
Guedes’ has struggled this season and his employer is aware they cannot recoup the €40m fee they invested in his signing. Therefore, the Spanish club could sanction his sale to Wolves for a lower price, provided Mir is allowed to move in the opposite direction.
Mir, Guedes and Nuno are all represented by Jorge Mendes and the super-agent has also been assisting the English club in getting part of their transfer business done.
The presence of Nuno Espírito Santo at Molineux and the Mendes factor could ‘favour’ Guedes’ arrival at Wolves in the next market. A potential deal, however, will depend on Mir moving to Valencia.
