Wolves: Julen Lopetegui willing to green-light Goncalo Guedes exit

Wolverhampton Wanderers would be open to the possibility of allowing their summer signing, Goncalo Guedes, to leave the club this month.

What’s the latest?

Things seem to be on the up for Wolves now with Julen Lopetegui at the helm and results taking an upturn since the Spaniard’s arrival.

And the Wanderers are making a splash in the January transfer window having already brought in two new faces and spent considerably on Matheus Cunha and Mario Lemina.

However, it seems one player is intent on getting away from Molineux this month despite the turn of events for the better under Lopetegui.

1. Wolves kick-started 2022 with an impressive win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, who scored the winner?

According to TalkSport’s Alex Crook, the winger is said to be hankering for an exit in the coming weeks and Wolves would not stand in his way:

“They’ll need to clear on some players and one of them actually I touched on this in my transfer notebook on the TalkSport website could be Goncalo Guedes.

“Only arrived in the summer, hasn’t really adapted yet to life in the Premier League, and it looks like he might be hankering for a move.

“I’m told that Wolves would be quite willing to move him on. So that’s a deal from the summer that hasn’t really worked out.”

Not hanging about

Guedes only signed for Wolves in August after making the move from La Liga side Valencia in a deal which is believed to be worth in the region of £27.5m.

And what is interesting to hear is that Wolves would not look to stand in his way and would just allow him to depart if the right offer was to come in.

And that, to us, suggests one of two things. One being they are that dissatisfied with the return they have seen from him would mean they would be willing to cash in on him already.

Do you think Guedes could still turn it around?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He has made 13 appearances in the Premier League and has only been able to provide a return of one goal and one assist (via Transfermarkt).

There is also the possibility that the Portuguese winger has struggled to settle into his new life in England that Wolves would be willing to sanction his potential exit.

This is a player who impressed a lot last season with Valencia having provided a return of 11 goals and six assists in La Liga alone (via Transfermarkt).

So it is apparent that something is just not quite clicking for him at Wolves and it would appear the Wanderers are not convinced he will be able to return to his best form shown in Spain.

And now with Lopetegui at the helm, it makes the potential exit, even more, mystifying given he Spanish manager’s previous of working with La Liga players.
