Wolves last night officially completed a move for midfielder Matheus Nunes.
The club made their fourth signing of the window, following the permanent deal for Hwang Hee-chan, and moves for Nathan Collins and Goncalo Guedes.
The dynamo has put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Molineux, with the club having the option of a further year.
At £42 million, the club have smashed their transfer record with Nunes, and fans are extremely excited about his arrival.
He is the kind of player supporters have been longing for for some time.
Quite possibly, he could take the Wolves midfield to a whole new level, especially if Ruben Neves stays as is now expected.
The Athletic have ran a report this morning about Nunes that goes into a bit of detail about his capture and the feeling of his arrival.
It touches on Wolves’ model of being self-sustainable.
According to the report, that model still remains at the club. But the Nunes deal was viewed as one that was simply ‘too good to turn down’.
Wanderers officials believe that Nunes will ‘fairly quickly’ be worth ‘far more’ than the £42 million that has just been paid.
Wolves sitting on a major asset in Matheus Nunes
£42 million sounds like a lot of money. But Wolves are now sitting on a major asset with Nunes.
The feeling is that he will thrive in the Premier League given the traits he has.
Given the constant demand for top-quality box-to-box midfielders, there is a very good chance that Nunes’ market value is going to sky-rocket.
Getting him in on a five-year contract with the option for another year puts the club in a very strong position.
Hopefully he will stay at the club for as long as possible. But at least when the time comes for him to be sold on, Wolves will likely be making a healthy profit.
