Valencia target Deportivo La Coruna's winger Andres Guardado - reports

Deportivo La Coruna winger Andres Guardado is said to be a target for Valencia this summer.

Reports in South America state that the talented midfielder is being tracked as a possible replacement for Spanish international Juan Mata, who has been linked strongly with both Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks.

With just 12 months remaining on Guardado's contract, he would be an attractive purchase for Valencia and has previously been linked with them due to his eye-catching displays in La Liga.

The Mexican was also one of very few players who stood out at the Riazor during Deportivo's ill-fated campaign last season when they were eventually relegated.

The diminutive 24-year-old has followed up on his decent club form by leading Mexico to victory in the recent Gold Cup tournament where he scored a goal in the final against the USA.
