Wolves must sign Goncalo Guedes


Wolves have been linked with both Goncalo Guedes and Wissam Ben Yedder recently and the duo could transform Bruno Lage’s attack next season.

It is no surprise that Wolves are being linked with Ben Yedder, given that Raul Jimenez finished as their top scorer in the Premier League last season with just six goals.

Although they enjoyed a strong start to the season that was built upon strong defensive displays, the lack of goals came back to haunt Lage’s side in the end, and their results capitulated alongside their defence in the final few games of the campaign.

Therefore, with no guarantee that Wolves will be able to produce as many clean sheets next term, Lage must look to sign attacking reinforcements this summer, after witnessing his side score just 38 goals in the top flight in 2021/22.

Ben Yedder has been touted as a potential option after hitting 25 goals for Monaco in Ligue 1 last season, and the Frenchman could form a superb partnership with fellow potential marquee signing Guedes.

Should Wolves splash the cash on Guedes?

Yes

No

No

The Portugal international enjoyed an excellent season with Valencia and has been linked with a switch to Molineux, most likely due to the club’s connection with his agent, Jorge Mendes.

In 36 La Liga appearances last season, Guedes would contribute an impressive 11 goals and six assists, averaging a strong 6.99 rating from WhoScored for his performances.

In comparison, Daniel Podence’s two goals were enough to see him finish as the top-scoring wide player in Lage’s side last season, so it is clear to see that the Portuguese boss needs some more attacking quality on the wings if Wolves are to progress next season.

Guedes, who has previously been labelled a “special talent“, is reportedly available for £30m this summer and while that would represent a big outlay for Wolves, they are yet to sign anyone this summer and risk a season of decline unless changes are made.

Given Guedes’ ability to dribble and play key passes, he could certainly add some creativity in the final third for Lage next season and would undoubtedly work well with a goal-poacher such as Ben Yedder.
