Valencia are expecting Goncalo Guedes to join a Premier League club this summer, while the Portugal international would not be against the idea of joining Everton or Wolverhampton Wanderers, as reported by Deporte Valenciano. 

Two years ago, Guedes was the talk of the town as Portugal won the inaugural UEFA Nations League title, overshadowing Cristiano Ronaldo and co with a well-taken winner in the nerve-shredding victory over Holland.

Flash forward to 2021 and, while the former PSG youngster has been included in Fernando Santo’s European Championship roster, it is impossible to ignore the fact that Guedes has tumbled well down the pecking order.

The 24-year-old feels more like a squad member than a starter these days.

Then again, that’s to be expected when you have flattered to deceive for the best part of two seasons, with Guedes struggling for form and fitness apart from an impressive end to the 2020/21 campaign. 

Is another Jorge Mendes client signing for Wolves?

A new start in a new league may be exactly what the winger needs to get his career back on track, however, and the Premier League feels like the perfect fit for a wideman famed for his explosive pace and counter-attacking qualities. 

Comparisons will be made with Wolves’ Pedro Neto, and understandably so.

La Razon reports that Guedes, another Jorge Mendes client, could join Wolves as part of a swap deal that would see Rafa Mir go the other way.

Everton are also interested, with Valencia expected to demand just £13 million for a player they bought for a staggering £36 million just three years ago (Calciomercato).

According to reports coming out of Spain, Valencia are open to offers for Guedes, assuming that a man once seen as Cristiano Ronaldo’s heir will end up in the Premier League at some point this summer. 

Wolves’ long-awaited appointment of Bruno Lage – another Portuguese-speaker represented by Mendes – would do Guedes’ chances of a move to Molineux no harm at all.
