Wolves were heavily linked with a move for Goncalo Guedes during the last transfer window.

The club were supposedly interested in the 24-year-old, and there were also claims of a potential swap deal involving Rafa Mir and Romain Saiss.

ESPN reported an offer from Wolves was expected.

But one never arrived, and Guedes remained with Valencia.

It is no out of the question Wolves could reignite their interest in Guedes, with Adama Traore potentially departing in the next window due to his contract situation.

It remains to be seen, but how has Guedes been doing since his links to Molineux?

Well, he’s enjoyed a pretty productive start to 2021/22 so far.

The former Paris Saint-Germain star has started every single game for 10th-placed Valencia, and scored three goals and made three assists up to now. He also forced an own goal against Osasuna.

His strike against Mallorca last month was particularly eye-catching. He rifled in an effort from all of 30 yards.

 

On football statistics website WhoScored, he is by far and away the highest-rated player at Valencia (7.27, next is Carlos Soler with 6.99).

And he’s definitely been a handful for defenders. So far he has drawn 2.8 fouls per game.

He’s also had four man-of-the-match displays.

Wolves should be keeping a close eye on Goncalo Guedes

Goncalo Guedes has definitely been standing out in a fairly average Valencia team, and Wolves ought to be keeping an eye on him ahead of the January transfer window.

If Traore is going to leave, then he will need replacing.

Valencia still have financial problems according to Football Espana, and so there is potential for a deal to be done if Traore does go.

Guedes’ contract expires in the summer of 2023. It is therefore a good time for the club to sell before his value begins to plummet.

He is certainly worth keeping an eye on.
