Diogo Jota’s form at Liverpool is just not ideal.

The star has made an excellent start at Anfield following his move from Wolves in the summer, and Nuno’s side have been struggling to score goals since his departure.

No direct replacement was signed for the 23-year-old, with Nuno seemingly content to put his faith in Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and Adama Traore.

Neto and Podence have done quite well, but fans are still waiting for both to chip in a bit more regularly with goals.

One man who is currently having no issues with goalscoring, is Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha.

Wolves were linked with a move for the star back in January (Sky Sports) along with Brighton when he was still an RB Leipzig player.

No Wolves bid ever came, and Cunha transferred to Bundesliga side Hertha for at least €15 million/£13.3 million (Get German Football News) on the 31st, with Podence joining Wolves a day earlier.

Since moving to the Hertha, Cunha has been very impressive, scoring 12 goals and making six assists in 20 appearances.

Seven of those have come in 2020/21, and Cunha seems like another player who Wolves could regret not snapping up.

He made headlines this weekend for scoring Hertha’s two goals against Borussia Dortmund in a 5-2 defeat – his first, a brilliant rasping hit from distance giving Roman Burki no chance.

Cunha a possible transfer regret?

Wolves seemingly signed Podence instead of Cunha, but the Brazilian’s form is certainly awkward viewing at the moment.

The versatile star has pace, power and the eye for goal that not too many in the Wolves side have at the moment.

Hopefully the South American ultimately won’t end up being a big oversight, but the early signs aren’t great.
