The Wolves midfield will now be the envy of many top clubs

Wolves will soon announce the signing for Matheus Nunes, in what is one of the most exciting transfer deals at Molineux for some time.

The club have finally reached an agreement with Sporting CP, with Wanderers set to smash their club record to land the 23-year-old.

Personal terms are agreed, and the player is having his medical today.

In recent weeks on social media, many have been losing hope of Wolves signing Nunes.

There had been claims that he had rejected one proposal from the club. And then there were reports of other clubs showing interest.

But apparently manager Bruno Lage was key in convincing Nunes to become a part of his project at Molineux.

Realistically, he will instantly become a regular starter at Molineux. And it is amazing to think how strong Wolves’ midfield now is.

Ruben Neves’ quality is well known at this point.

The 24-year-old is widely regarding as one of the Premier League’s top deep-lying playmakers, and has arguably been Wolves’ best player over the past couple of years.

It is thought many clubs were/are interested in him this summer. But Wolves’ huge £70 million asking price has seemingly proved too prohibitive for most so far.

He will now be joined in the engine room by Nunes, who is exactly the kind of player Wanderers have been crying out for.

The star is a powerful ball-carrier, and very press-resistant. Wolves have needed someone to take the ball and break the lines by dribbling to get the team higher up the pitch. In Nunes they now have someone who can do just that.

Quite simply, Neves and Nunes together are a dream combination.

Neves and Nunes are a brilliant pairing that will have many top clubs jealous

On paper, Neves and Nunes complement each other perfectly.

You’ve got the artist that is Neves, a high-class technician will pick up the ball in slightly deeper positions and spread the play wherever it needs to be spread.

And then you’ve got Nunes, who will bring the power, the athleticism and the drive. But he also does have strong technical qualities like his compatriot.

Then throw in someone like a Daniel Podence or a Morgan Gibbs-White to play as a number 10 and you’ve got a seriously impress set-up.

Undoubtedly, there will now be a lot of top clubs out there that are feeling slightly envious of Wolves’ new engine room.
