Report claims Wolves will only bid for Guedes if they sell Traore

Goncalo Guedes to Wolves rumours have sparked up again recently.

The latest from Spanish outlet AS is that Wolves will only bid for the Portugal international on one condition.

They say that only if Wolves sell Adama Traore will they bid for Guedes.

The report claims that Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham are preparing to bid 40 million euros (£34 million) for the Spanish international.

Common sense

In truth, what the report says is just common sense.

Wolves haven’t looked like spending big on a transfer at any point during the transfer window.

And they wouldn’t need a new wide forward unless one of their existing options left.

They wouldn’t have the money for it either.

The report says that if Wolves sell Traore for £34 million to Spurs, they’ll go in with £26 million for Guedes.

Given Valencia’s financial situation, they would apparently find that very hard to turn down.

But we’ve been here all summer with Traore’s situation. Plenty of talk, but no offers on the table so nothing to actually decide on.

Spurs don’t tend to flash the cash, so there are legitimate doubts over whether they’d cough up £35 million for another winger when they need a centre half and a central midfielder more.

The trade off would give Wolves something like £8 million, which could be spent elsewhere, but is the upheaval worth it for that amount of money?

Probably not, but as said above, the situation is hypothetical for as long as Tottenham – or any other suitor – don’t come forward with a serious, concrete bid.
