In a recent print edition, AS has provided an update on Valencia winger Gonçalo Guedes’ future amid recent interest from West Ham United. It has been revealed that the Spanish club could put the Portuguese wide player up for sale which would open the door for the Hammers to land him this summer (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).
Guedes’ Up And Down Season In Spanish Football
The Benavente-born sensation has been a bit inconsistent with his form at the Mestalla Stadium this season but has done well to produce some eye-catching displays down the left-wing. Guedes has netted four goals and grabbed three assists in 24 matches for the Spanish outfit this term across various competitions.
The 24-year-old deserves credit for averaging 1.8 shots, 0.7 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per game in this La Liga campaign. However, he needs to improve his accuracy when distributing possession in the attacking third after completing 75.3% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Guedes has still got a long way to go before he is ready to taste success at the highest level. Maybe a switch to a club like West Ham could be an ideal career move for him to consider this summer.
What Will The Valencia Wing Wizard Bring To The London Stadium?
Guedes is blessed with electric pace and can complete some dangerous dribbles out on the wide areas. He can turn on the afterburners to get past his marker in the final third and usually packs a lot of venom with his shot attempts. The Portuguese sensation has also got the vision to play a decisive pass in the opposition half but needs to be a bit more fruitful with his contributions in front of the opponent’s goal.
Is Guedes A Good Option For The Hammers?
David Moyes can benefit from adding a winger of Guedes’ skillset as he will undoubtedly add a lot of quality to his attacking department at the East London club. At 24, Guedes is about to enter the prime years of his playing career, so the West Ham boss might fancy his chances of getting the best out of him next season if he ends up acquiring his services this summer.
Guedes is good enough to add more competition for Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma and Andriy Yarmolenko for a regular starting spot at the London Stadium in the coming seasons. All in all, the Valencia star will be a decent option for the Hammers to consider before the start of the new Premier League campaign.
