Wolves going after Goncalo Guedes

Premier League side Wolves are considering a possible player-plus-cash deal for Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes ahead of the 2021/22 season. Wolves are managed by non other than former Valencia CF coach Nuno Santo and he has been closely following Valencia CF since his sacking, and he has identified Goncalo Guedes as this summers target for his team. 

Italian midfielder Patrick Cutrone joined Valencia CF on a six-month loan from Wolves in January and even though he hasn't featured enough, Wolves are hoping that a decent 20 million euros offer plus the player will entice Valencia CF enough to sell Goncalo Guedes.

Valencia CF might be interested in this deal as Maxi Gomez is likely going to be sold the coming summer, and Gameiro's contract is most likely not going to be extended, so Valencia CF will be short on attackers, so Cutrone might be a decent option.

If Valencia CF is able to get 20-23 million euros from Guedes plus Cutrone and is able to sell Maxi Gomez at about 13-15 million euros, that would balance the books for the 2021/2022 season and would also significantly lower the salary expenditure as Guedes and Gomez are two of the highest earners in Valencia CF.
