Report: Everton eye move for Goncalo Guedes


Everton have joined the race to sign Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes.

According to reports from sports station Plaza Radio report via Plaza Deportiva, Everton are keen to land the Portuguese winger this summer.

The Toffees will be boosted by the fact that The Che are also keen to offload him, with the The League club being saddled in huge debt, thought to be over €200m (£173m).

Everton, however, are not the only Premier League side that have registered an interest in the 24-year-old attacker.

Recently, The reason claimed that Wolves are also keen on signing Guedes, with Valencia demanding a fee of around € 40m (£ 34.6m) for their wide player.

However, Wolves are struggling financially, and they need to sell some of their big players in order to fund moves for potential new arrivals.

Guedes has impressed this season, managing five goals and five assists in 31 appearances in the Spanish League.

He is a versatile attacker who can play in all three positions up front as also as a striker.

Everton need to bolster their attacking department following a disappointing campaign, and Guedes fits the bill nicely.

The 2020-21 season started brightly for the Toffees but they ended up finishing 10th in the league, behind newcomer Leeds United.

The Toffees need to spend big again this summer to bolster the squad, and signing an attacking midfielder should be one of their top priorities.

The majority of Everton’s goals have come from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, and more productivity is needed from wide areas.

Guedes would be a superb addition for the Toffees, and the club should make a concrete effort to lower down the asking price and get the deal done at the earliest.
