Valencia are keen to sell forward Gonçalo Guedes this summer, and Wolverhampton Wanderers ‘will try to sign him’.
That’s according to La Razón, who say the Portuguese player is ‘underperforming’ for the Spanish club, and so they want to cash in on him while they can.
They, though, are aware that because of his poor performances and the economic crisis caused by the Coronavirus, it will be ‘difficult’ for them to recover the €40m they paid to sign him from PSG.
There is a suitor, though, and that is Wolves, who are the ‘first team interested’ in making a deal happen this summer.
They were named as potential suitors by Fichajes yesterday, who put them forward amid coverage of Valencia’s desire to sell up.
La Razón now explain that Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo is ‘very attentive’ to the situation at Valencia and especially Guedes, who he is ‘confident’ he can ‘get the best out of’.
Then there is Jorge Mendes to consider. He is both Guedes’s and Espírito Santo’s agent and has major influence at Wolves, so he could ‘facilitate’ the move for all parties.
There’s no mention of a move as yet, or even talks to make it happen, but Valencia are aware that if Guedes doesn’t leave this summer, his value will continue to fall, and that is something they are keen to avoid.
Thus, the pieces are seemingly in place to make it happen, with Wolves looking set to benefit from another Mendes special.
