Valencia have reportedly decided that winger Goncalo Guedes can leave the club this summer.
The attacker has been enjoying a very productive season over in Spain.
So far he has scored 13 goals and made five assists.
Valencia see the next window as an opportunity to cash in on the 25-year-old, with the player’s contract expiring in the summer of 2023.
According to Calciomercato, the giants are prepared to sell, but they do want to try and recoup what they initially paid for him.
That would be around £34 million, and Calciomercato say there is no shortage of admirers.
Apparently AS Roma have been monitoring Guedes quite closely in recent times.
It’s explained that Guedes was spotted in Rome over Christmas and he supposedly ‘loves Italy’.
The development has potential significance for Wolves, as the club were recently linked with Guedes again.
Estadio Deportivo claimed Wanderers were one of a few teams in the mix.
He is a player who has been on Wolves’ radar for some time. And it’s possible the club could finally swoop this summer.
Having showcased his capabilities to play through the middle as a striker, officials might see him as someone who can compete with Raul Jimenez, or maybe partner him.
£34 million would be a lot for Wolves to pay for Guedes
While it’s potentially good news that Valencia have decided to sell, £34 million is quite a lot of money.
It’s understandable they’d want to recoup their initial investment.
But Guedes only has a year left on his contract, so it seems quite a steep asking price.
Presuming he isn’t going to extend his contract, Wolves would not be wise to spend so much.
