Villarreal closing in on Eric Bailly

The Yellow Submarine has already entered the market, securing a deal for former defender Eric Bailly to return to Castellon.

Villarreal seems poised to maintain their active start to the January transfer window in the upcoming days.

Eric Bailly, joining Villarreal after a challenging time with Besiktas, brings experience to the defense and will be available for the Africa Cup of Nations this month.

Yet, coach Marcelino affirmed his intention to continue strengthening the squad, with more signings expected before January concludes.

The club is rumored to target attacking players next, with loan offers linked to Manchester United’s Facundo Pellistri and Real Madrid’s emerging talent Arda Guler.

Still, the closest deal might involve ex-Valencia playmaker Goncalo Guedes, potentially joining on a six-month loan from Premier League team Wolves.

Guedes faced difficulties in the second year of his Benfica loan. Villarreal will reach out to Wolves about his potential availability.

The 27-year-old played a vital role in Marcelino’s Valencia team, contributing 10 La Liga goals in 58 appearances at the Estadio Mestalla.
