Kilman gives his first impression of Wolves newbie Goncalo Guedes

Maximilian Kilman has given his first impression of Goncalo Guedes, after Wolves signed the forward from Valencia.

The club completed the deal on Monday, just days after the defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road.

Bruno Lage could not field a recognised striker in west Yorkshire, with Raul Jimenez out injured and Fabio Silva out on loan with Anderlecht.

Hwang Hee-chan led the line, and the South Korean did have a good game.

But Wolves were missing a proper presence.

Guedes has come in and, although he is not an out-and-out striker, it is hoped he can help Wolves become more potent in the final third.

Potentially, he could play through the middle against Fulham this weekend.

Kilman has been speaking to Sky Sports, and shared his initial thoughts about the 25-year-old.

He said (Sky Sports): “I saw straight away that he is very close with the Portuguese boys, it is really good he can settle in, but he will settle in with everyone because he seems like a very nice lad.

“He looks very sharp and very fast in training. He has a very good eye for goal if you see the finishes he’s already done in training… I’m looking forward to playing with him and seeing how he does.

“When you have top-quality players coming in – it does give everyone a boost. You are working with a lot of good and better players and it is good to have them around.”

Kilman’s first impression of Guedes is reason for optimism

This is an exciting verdict from Kilman about Wolves’ latest addition to the pack.

It very much sounds as though Guedes is going to be someone capable of really lifting the crowd with the way he plays.

By many accounts he’s very fast, powerful and dynamic. And to hear he can finish really well is very encouraging.

Wolves’ goalscoring issues over the past couple of years have been well documented. So to hear Guedes has a legitimate eye for goal is welcome news.
