Wolverhampton Wanderers transfer news: Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes is on the verge of joining the Wolves.
Guedes is one of the most talented wingers in La Liga. He joined Los Che on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and later permanently in 2018.
He has played 146 league games for the club so far, scoring 28 goals. Guedes helped Spain’s southeastern coast-based club win the Copa del Rey during the 2018-19 season.
The 25-year-old is also an integral part of Portugal’s national team set-up. He has played 32 games for his nation thus far, scoring seven goals. Guedes was part of the Navigators squad that lifted the UEFA Nations Cup in 2018-19.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Wolverhampton Wanderers are preparing a medical test for Goncalo Guedes to join the club this week.
The Spanish club have accepted a transfer bid of close to €32 million plus add-ons to sell the Portugal international. The West Midlands club are also preparing to offer Guedes a long-term contract to complete the deal in the coming hours.
If everything goes as per the plan, Guedes will become Wolves’ third signing of the transfer window after Nathan Collins and Hee-Chang Hwang. Apart from that the West Midlands club are also pushing to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
Valued at £36 million by TransferMarkt, Guedes is a flamboyant attacker who is capable of playing anywhere across the forward line or as an attacking midfielder.
His key strengths are his dribbling and ability to score goals from distance, along with his penchant to find his teammates in high goalscoring positions. He played 36 league games last season, scoring 11 goals and assisting six more.
According to WhoScored, he registered 1.9 shots, 1.2 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per 90 in the Spanish top division last term.
