Wolves transfer news: Jorge Mendes working to take Goncalo Guedes to Roma

Wolves face missing out on Goncalo Guedes, with agent Jorge Mendes working to take the player to AS Roma.

Wolves have been linked with a move for the Valencia player leading up to the summer window.

The Telegraph had reported that a striker was a priority for the club, and that Guedes was a target.

But there has seemingly been no movement from the club so far, and it looks as though they could now end up missing out.

According to Calciomercato, the 25-year-old has accepted Roma’s proposal and agreed personal terms.

It is now a case of whether the two clubs can agree a fee.

Currently, Valencia are seeking around £34 million.

That’s too much for the Italian outfit though, and it is stated that Mendes is working on reducing that asking price.

It is suggested that Roma could offer the likes of Amadou Diawara and Ebrima Darboe into a potential deal.

The development is a frustration for Wolves, who are in desperate need of someone who can score goals and provide assists.

Wolves struggled in the final third again in 2021/22, and needing someone with a cutting edge.

Guedes – who recently admitted he wasn’t sure if he’d be leaving Valencia this summer – scored 13 goals and made six assists for Los Che, and his versatility could make him very handy for Wanderers.

But it seems the club may have their work cut out to land him from here.

Blow for Wolves as Goncalo Guedes agrees personal terms with Roma with Mendes working on transfer

It seems Wolves’ hopes of landing Guedes are fading.

News, if true, of him agreeing personal terms with the Italian club is quite significant.

And with Mendes working on the deal, it may only be a matter of time before Guedes completes a move to Stadio Olimpico.

Like with many other targets right now, Wanderers are going to have to get a move on or risk missing out.
