Wolves have been linked with Valencia forward Goncalo Guedes – again.

Goal claim that Wolves are ready to enlist the help of Jorge Mendes to sign the Portugal international.

They say that Wolves are ready to pay between 25 and 30 million euros for the forward; that’s between £21.3 and £25.5 million.

Guedes actually cost 40 million euros (£34 million) when he joined Valencia from Paris Saint-Germain in 2018.

This is not the first time Wolves have been linked with Guedes.

He was apparently offered to the club back in April, when Nuno Espirito Santo was still in charge.

 

More recently, he was named as a Wolves target last month while also being linked with a move to Nuno’s Tottenham.

And now with just weeks remaining of the transfer window, Guedes has been mentioned alongside Wolves again.

Wolves need reinforcements elsewhere

Wolves don’t need an expensive wide forward as much as they need a central defender and a central midfielder.

They will also need a backup striker if Rafa Mir ends up leaving.

And with the slow movement in the transfer window, and money seemingly at something of a premium, links to a £25 million wideman don’t make sense.
