Wolves are interested in Sporting midfielder Matheus Nunes, according to reports from Portugal.

Noticias ao Minuto, via A Bola, report that Bruno Lage is keen on the 22-year-old midfielder.

The same publication reports that Sporting are willing to sell the midfielder to raise funds this summer.

Sporting will only listen to offers of at least 18 million euros (£15.4 million) and that apparently won’t put Wolves off.

Sporting won the Portuguese title last season but are looking to raise 50 million euros (£42.8 million) in the transfer market this summer.

Nunes is a central midfield player, who is apparently capable of playing an anchoring role or further forward.

That’s one of the areas Wolves are reportedly looking to improve in the transfer market before the end of the window.


Wolves have been heavily linked with another Sporting midfielder this summer – Joao Palhinha.

But the latest reports claimed that Sporting want £51 million for the Portugal international.

That would be a club-record fee for Wolves, and Nunes is a more affordable option.

It seems Wolves are weighing up a bid but haven’t actually made a formal approach yet.

This one could be one to watch as the window progresses, especially with Sporting’s reported willingness to sell at the right price.
