Wolves response will be “we’ve ordered an Uber and he’ll be there shortly”!Villarreal have set their sights on signing Wolverhampton Wanderers' Gonçalo Guedes in the winter market, according to Radio Marca, relayed by Estadio Deportivo.
The winger moved to Wolves in 2022 and after struggling in the first few months, he joined Benfica on loan in January, before his temporary stay there was extended in the last window.
Villarreal have won three league games and have parted ways with two managers this season. They appointed Marcelino García Toral as their new coach earlier this week.
The manager needs reinforcements in January and his new side are preparing a 'bombshell', to sign the Wolves owned player in the winter market.
At Benfica, the Portugal international has been restricted to 159 minutes of action from seven games this season, largely due to his recovery from a knee injury. The 26-year-old 'looks for a way out' and the La Liga side are ready to open their door for him.
It's claimed the Yellow Submarine intend to take the Wolves man on loan and also take care of his wages. Marcelino knows Guedes well as he managed him when they were at Valencia.
The new coach has given his approval to sign the attacker and the latter would welcome a move back to La Liga.
The report doesn't mention Wolves' stance on the possibility of ending Guedes' stay at Benfica and then sending him on loan to Villarreal.
Reports this week in Portugal have insisted Guedes will stay for the full season.

Well he’s doing ok for Benfica so must still have some decent value on his head. He scored goals for us too. Just his attitude and not wanting to be here really must of miffed JL to exile him. Out the door with Podence and Fabio show us the cash to get better players I sayHopefully it's a loan with obligation to buy.
Is he? One goal in 16 games, and just four games this season. That doesn't sound great to me. I'd happily take anything close to £20m.Well he’s doing ok for Benfica so must still have some decent value on his head. He scored goals for us too.

I am still struggling to get past Mullin. 100 goals in 140 games is phenomenalI know I'm getting boring but we've got to get a between the posts CF in January, even if we need to sell Silva to do it. When you watch Haarland, Watkins, Wilson they're right there between the posts where they get their goals, not out on the wing or in mf where our 'strikers' tend to roam.
Don’t be silly hahaPer the latest Johnny Philips article, we are only looking for a 9 and winger this January.
Hope we get the deals done early, so they have time to bed in.
If that was true at all, you’d have to take the money
Agreed, but £40m is more than enough for a new keeper, with significant change for another player. If £40m is on offer we need to snatch their hands off for it!£40m is a lot of money, we’d need a really good replacement though, goalkeeper is such an important position and has evolved so much in recent years.
