Europa League champions Chelsea have made a big bid for Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
Goncalo Guedes has impressed both club and country in the past year and his form has attracted the attention of Premier League giants.
The specific publication from the Daily Express claimed that Chelsea have made a bid of around £62m for the Portuguese international but it was revealed that a potential transfer will be dependent on the two-window transfer ban hanging over their head.
Chelsea have been slapped with a two-window transfer ban by world’s football governing body FIFA for irregularities over the signing of players under the age of 18.
The Blues have submitted an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) after FIFA’s Appeal Committee turned down their request to have the transfer ban overturned.
Goncalo Guedes was a key part of the Valencia team that recovered from a poor start to secure Champions League football via a fourth-placed finish during the just concluded Spanish La Liga season.
The winger also scored the only goal of the game to give Portugal the inaugural UEFA Nations League title via a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in their final clash.
