I would not point to WebAim in terms of "standards and guidelines", but
to the actual WCAG SC
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#link-purpose-in-context (and maybe point
to the webaim checklist there as an additional resource, something like
"See also ...")

Also, as an aside, I don't think a redundant link is an actual WCAG
failure (if the link with the same text goes to the same URL). it would
fail 2.4.4 if it had the same text but was going to different places.
