‘On his day is as good as it gets’ – Wolves agree deal for Valencia’s Guedes

Wolves have agreed a £27.5million deal with Valencia for Portugal international Goncalo Guedes, in a move that has been described as ‘absolutely fantastic’.

talkSPORT understands the 25-year-old has reached an agreement to move to the Premier League, with Bruno Lage bolstering his attacking options with another Portuguese star.

A winger who can also play as a centre-forward, Guedes has spent the past five seasons in LaLiga after departing Paris Saint-Germain as a highly-rated prospect.

Wolves lost their Premier League opener 2-1 against Leeds with striker Raul Jimenez out injured, and the club have so far had a quiet summer window.

Defender Nathan Collins has joined from Burnley in a £20.5m move, replacing captain Conor Coady who looks set to join Everton.

The club also made a loan deal for striker Hee-chan Hwang permanent by paying Leipzig £15m, but the Korean struggled to make an impact against Leeds with Wolves hard up in front of goal.

Only relegated trio Burnley, Watford and Norwich scored fewer goals than Wolves’ 38 last season, with Guedes, who has seven goals in 32 games for Portugal, hoping to up that tally.

Guedes rose to prominence after graduating from Benfica’s academy and impressing for the first team, earning him a €30m move to PSG, who fought off interest from Manchester United.

Although things didn’t work out in France, Guedes still has a big reputation in Spain, as confirmed by talkSPORT’s European expert Andy Brassell.

He explained: “One of their [Valencia’s] best players, arguably their best player, Goncalo Guedes, the winger from Portugal looks like might join Wolves in the coming days, now this is interesting. 

“For Wolves I think Guedes will be absolutely fantastic, they need that little bit of extra bang upfront, maybe they could be in a bit of trouble if they’re not scoring goals.
