Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly now face competition to land Goncalo Guedes in the form of Sevilla.

Estadio Deportivo have reported today that the Spanish outfit have joined the race for the Valencia forward, who’ll be into the final two years of his contract this summer.

Guedes has been with Los Che since 2017, joining on loan from Paris Saint-Germain at first.

He turned the move permanent in the summer of 2018.

Guedes’ future is up in the air, with Valencia said to be in need of cash and talk of the player perhaps needing a change of scenery.

The 24-year-old is represented by Jorge Mendes’ Gestifute Agency, which makes the link unsurprising.

It’s claimed Valencia would hope to sell for around £34 million.

 

Sevilla’s interest is potentially bad news for Wolves if they did have hopes of landing Guedes this summer.

Julen Lopetegui’s side have had a good season in La Liga, and have secured Champions League football for next season.

Sevilla reportedly coming to the table potentially complicates matters for Wolves.

It would perhaps be quite easy for Guedes to make that particular move.

He’s been in Spain for the past few years, is probably fairly settled and his homeland is just next door.

The lure of playing Champions League football may also be too strong for Wolves to compete with.
