Matheus Nunes is set to become Wolves’ third signing of the summer, having reportedly now agreed personal terms.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the midfielder has accepted Wanderers’ proposal.
The player is now scheduled for a medical.
It is a major development for Wolves, who have been chasing Nunes all summer.
Many Wolves fans were starting to lose faith. Especially after seeing the club not signing Joao Palhinha in the end.
But last night a breakthrough was made, with reports in Portugal indicating that a deal had been closed between the two clubs for around £42 million.
That means Nunes is set to become Wolves’ new record signing.
Romano has tweeted this morning: “Matheus Nunes has accepted Wolves proposal, here we go! Full agreement finally completed also on personal terms, €50m fee [add-ons included] was already agreed 24h ago with Sporting.
“Medicals scheduled in England in order to get it signed. Huge signing for Wolves.”
All being well, Nunes will become the first (permanent) midfielder signing to join the club since Leander Dendoncker back in 2019.
Supporters have been longing for a new addition to the engine room for some time.
And Nunes is a player that could potential take the midfield to a whole new level.
A huge signing for Wolves as Romano says club have agreed personal terms with Nunes
With a transfer fee and now personal terms both agreed, it is looking like Wolves have finally gotten their man.
This is a major coup for Wolves.
The midfield has needed fresh impetus for some time, and Nunes coming in will really raise the bar.
He is an excellent ball-carrier, and he is much different to Bruno Lage’s current options.
Hopefully the club can now wrap up the deal quickly and get Nunes in so he can get some training sessions under his belt ahead of the game with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
