Wolves are closely watching Aves’ Alexandre Guedes over a potential move according to a report from the Express and Star.
After a disappointing first season under the ownership of Fosun International where they ended up being stuck in mid-table rather than challenging for promotion like initially expected, the club are set for another overhaul of the squad with Nuno Espirito Santo now in charge of the first team. And one area they are looking to improve is up front as they are looking to get more goals as they look to push further up the Sky Bet Championship table.
The player they have been looking at is Guedes, a 23-year-old striker who has played at several levels for Portugal’s youth teams. He came through the Sporting Lisbon academy but made his name with Aves over his last two years with the club, notably this season when he scored 13 goals as the club sealed their promotion to the Primeira Liga. But with this interest coming from abroad, Guedes may not join the rest of his Aves team mates in the top tier of Portuguese football.
Wolves have been closely watching the striker and could make a move in the next few weeks. It would be a tough deal to complete as Guedes has a contract at the club until 2020 but the chance to play in English football and have the opportunity to get promoted to the Premier League maybe something that the striker can’t turn down. That’s if the Black County club decide he is their man after all though.
