Goncalo Guedes’ early struggles at Wolves have been highlighted in the Spanish media.
The winger came to Molineux from Valencia in the summer, with Wolves having chased the forward for some time.
Fans were delighted with his signing, as he had just enjoyed a solid season with Valencia.
He was seen as a means of improving productivity in the final third.
But so far, Guedes has been really disappointing.
In his nine appearances for the club so far, he has only provided one assist and has yet to score.
He has really struggled to impact games and show fans his best attributes of ball-carrying and shooting from in and around the penalty area.
Guedes was a regular pick for Bruno Lage. But Steve Davis has been less trusting of him amid his poor form.
Against Leicester City on Sunday, he was an unused substitute.
Estadio Deportivo have run an article about Guedes and his struggles for Wolves.
They say Guedes is ‘not well’ at Molineux at the moment. They talk about how Guedes had interest from other clubs like AS Roma and Sevilla, before Jorge Mendes facilitated his £27.5 million (plus add-ons) move to Wolves.
The publication adds that there is now a debate going on over Guedes as to whether he will make Portugal’s World Cup squad for Qatar.
Fernandos Santos did not call Guedes up in the last international break in September.
So at the moment, his prospects are looking somewhat bleak.
Goncalo Guedes risks becoming the next Francisco Trincao – he must find form soon for Wolves amid current struggles
Guedes has been massively disappointing so far.
Wolves fans have been waiting patiently for some time for him to come Molineux, and now he is here it’s frustrating that he’s having so little impact.
It’s still early days of course, and he is probably still trying to find his feet.
But certainly, much more was expected of him. He’s not a young player, and has scored goals and assists in La Liga.
His situation is somewhat reminiscent of Francisco Trincao, who was on loan at Wolves last season.
The winger found it hard to adapt to English football, and struggled from a physicality standpoint.
At the moment, Guedes is at risk of being seen as the next Trincao, and he must step up.
