Wolves could well be on the hunt for a new winger this summer if Bruno Lage wants to play his favoured 4-4-2 formation, but Wolves legend Steve Bull does not want to see Goncalo Guedes at Molineux after suggesting he would only be a reserve.
Last season saw Wolves hampered by injuries across their whole squad but when they have everyone fit, they boast a wealth of options in the wide areas with the likes of Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and Adama Traore the standout players.
It felt like the football and ideas on the pitch were becoming a bit stale so with a new manager at the helm he may look to freshen things up and with talk of Traore leaving this summer, they could potentially be replacing him with Guedes.
The Valencia winger is a Portuguese international and he was in red hot form in La Liga last season as he netted five times and registered six assists, however, despite his qualities Bull would rather he stayed in Spain than join Wolves this summer, as he explained exclusively to Football FanCast:
“Why would he want to come from a well-established side where he’s making his mark and come to Wolves and maybe play with the reserves?
“I think he should stay where he is and keep doing what he’s doing, but Wolves will keep him on their radar and say we want the first option to buy him if Valencia were to offload him.”
Guedes would bring different skills to Wolves as their three established wingers are all about, getting to the byline and getting a cross into the box but Guedes offers more of a goal threat as he likes to beat a man and get a shot away.
It could prove to be a smart signing as he could potentially take some of the burden off of Raul Jimenez’s shoulders when he eventually returns from the head injury he sustained last November, and with a market value of £22.5 million it would appear to be a good piece of business.
