Bolton and Villa fancy a Mexican

BY foxsports • February 10, 2011

Guardado is currently plying his trade in La Coruna but the left-sided schemer could be heading to the Premier League in the summer. Blackburn were said to have expressed an interest on Guardado in the January transfer window, but they instead added Jermaine Jones to the Ewood Park engine room. And it now looks as though their Lancashire rivals Bolton, plus Villa, are leading the chase having sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old in La Liga, where he has played for four years. Guardado, who could cost around £7.5million, was an integral member of Mexico's World Cup side last summer. And Deportivo could be persuaded to part ways with the former Atlas performer given their financial difficulties and current predicament in the Primera Division, where they lie 17th - one place and one point above the drop zone.
