Wolves are reportedly keen to sign midfielder Matheus Nunes from Sporting this summer.
Portuguese outlet Noticias ao Minuto, via A Bola, report that Bruno Lage wants Nunes at Molineux.
The same publication reports that Sporting are willing to sell the midfielder to raise funds this summer.
They won the Portuguese title last season but they apparently want to raise 50 million euros (£42.8 million) before the end of the window.
Wolves are apparently keen to sign a new central midfielder before the window shuts.
They’ve been linked with Nunes’ Sporting teammate Joao Palhinha, but he would apparently cost a club record fee.
Some fans reacted to the report on Twitter and one felt that because Nunes is a more affordable option, Wolves can sign him and keep Ruben Neves at the club beyond the summer.
Others were just excited with the link to a player they rate and some want the interest to progress into a bid. Here’s how the report went down:

Seeing a lot of Wolves being, "interested" in players atm without signing someone, especially in CM and CB where we need first team players, hope they hurry up a bit, the season will be on us before you know it— Wolves Fan (@WolvesFan20) July 24, 2021
