Wolves winger Goncalo Guedes could reportedly make shock move back to Spain in January.
That is according to Jeunes Footeux, who claimed yesterday that Guedes has emerged as a target for Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.
The report how Guedes has failed to hit the ground running in England following his summer move from Valencia.
The star has only scored one goal and made one assists so far for Wolves.
At £27.5 million plus add-ons, Guedes was one the club’s marquee signings of the summer. But he has not lived up to his billing so far.
MORE WOLVES STORIES
In the weeks leading up to the World Cup, he started to see a bit less game time compared to the opening weeks of the season.
Steve Davis was keen to use Adama Traore and Daniel Podence as the wingers.
But Guedes did shine against Brighton, against whom he scored his one and only goal.
Julen Lopetegui started Guedes in the Carabao Cup match against Gillingham. But it was another poor display from the former Benfica man.
Jeunes Footeux suggest that the player actually wants out of Wolves. He ‘plans to leave’ after struggling to adapt, and Sevilla and Atletico are the clubs mentioned as potential next destinations.
Wolves are about to do business with Atletico over Matheus Cunha.
It would certainly raise a few eyebrows if Guedes was offloaded just one window after signing for the club.
Goncalo Guedes heading back to Spain in January wouldn’t be a big shock on the face of it
This is quite the claim from Jeunes Footeux, which is a French source reporting on a Portuguese player at Wolves potentially heading to Spain.
For a lot of Wolves fans, Guedes has been difficult to warm to since his arrival at Molineux.
His performances have left a lot to be desired, and there have also been accusations of him not acknowledging supporters and heading down the tunnel.
With Cunha coming in, it would perhaps not be all that surprising if he did leave in January.
That said, this claim should be taken with a pinch of salt.
The club paid a lot of money for Guedes and would surely like to give him every chance of proving himself.
Lopetegui has now arrived and might have a really positive effect on him. He’s seen him play in Spain many times and might just get him going.
