Wolves transfer news: Wanderers eyeing Almeida and Guedes from Vitoria

Wolves are reportedly now eyeing two players from Vitoria Guimaraes in Andre Almeida and Guilherme Guedes.

According to Zero Zero, the club are now in negotiations to sign the youngsters.

And it’s claimed that a deal for both would cost the club somewhere between £8.5 million and £12.8 million.

Wolves were linked with a move for Almeida at the weekend, with Jornal de Noticias claiming the club were considering a move. They also said that there was interest from Portuguese champions FC Porto.

But it seems Wanderers might be ready to make a double swoop on Vitoria, with Guedes a target as well.

Guedes, also known as Gui, is a 20-year-old midfielder and another client of Jorge Mendes.

A recent report from A Bola stated that he is likely to be sold in order to help the financial stability of the club.

Wolves may be hoping that the Portuguese youth internationals could eventually become a long-term replacements for Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.

Neves continues to be linked with a big-money transfer away from Molineux.

And Moutinho is out of contract this summer. Wolves want to keep him, but currently there is a sticking point in the contract negotiations, with the player wanting a couple more years.

Wolves looking for their new Neves and Moutinho with potential swoop for Almeida and Guedes?

Neves and Moutinho have been strutting their stuff at Molineux now for the last few years, but it seems that partnership will be broken up from this point on.

It would be a major surprise if Neves stayed.

And then, of course, Moutinho is mid-thirties and won’t be around too much longer.

It is possible Wolves are preparing for life after the duo.

Almeida and Guedes are obviously both still very young, but perhaps one day they might be seen as the heirs to Neves and Moutinho.
