Fabrizio Romano delivers update on Matheus Cunha to Wolves

Wolves have been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid attacker Matheus Cunha.

It has been claimed that Wolves are one of a few clubs keen on the Brazilian, who has struggled for minutes of late.

Cunha has made 17 appearances so far this term, but for just 510 minutes of time on the pitch.

Reports had suggested that Wolves were leading the race for the 23-year-old.

But now Fabrizio Romano has given the information he has on the situation.

The high profile journalist said on Twitter earlier today: “Wolverhampton are discussing details of the official proposal to sign Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid. Talks are already ongoing.

“Personal terms would be the next step to get the deal done.”

Cunha has a contract with Atleti until the summer of 2026.

That puts the Spanish club in a strong position over their asset.

They paid Hertha Berlin around £27 million all in for Cunha (ESPN). It is likely they would want to recoup as much of that sum as possible if they were to sell.

But the club could always consider sending him out on loan.

That is something Atleti might be keen on, in order to give Cunha the chance to prove himself.

Work to do for Wolves to sign Matheus Cunha from Atletico

So it seems reports of there being an agreement between Wolves and Atletico might have been premature.

But we are only at the start of December, and there still a while before the transfer window opens.

There is time for Wolves to get to work on this deal, and then finalise it once the window is open.

Cunha could be a good addition for Wanderers, and Julen Lopetegui will know all about him having seen him several times as Sevilla manager.

Hopefully, an agreement can soon be reached in terms of the fee/loan, and then Cunha will agree personal terms.
