WOLVES plan to plug their striker hole with Goncalo Guedes.
Wanderers fans were concerned they were short up front on the eve of the season and that is how it looked in Saturday's 2-1 opening day defeat at Leeds.
Daniel Podence gave them an early lead at Elland Road but they then failed to capitalise on periods of dominance as the hosts turned it around.
First-choice front-man Raul Jimenez is likely to be sidelined with a knee injury for up to eight games.
And the loan of £35million man Fabio Silva to Anderlecht means boss Bruno Lage is lacking a focal point for his attack.
Now reports have emerged saying they have agreed a deal worth up to £35m for Valencia forward Guedes.

The versatile star can play up front and as a winger and has scored 36 goals in 178 appearances for the La Liga giants.
Guedes will be Wolves' second summer signing following last month's £20m capture of Burnley centre-half Nathan Collins, 21.
