Wolves transfer news: Cunha and Felipe on track to join Wolves

Atletico Madrid duo Mathes Cunha and Felipe are both reportedly on track to join Wolves.

Marca have today provided an update on the situation, and they talk about how there are four players who are heading for the exit at the Wanda Metropolitano.

As well as Cunha and Felipe, Atleti are looking to sell Joao Felix and Mario Hermoso.

Marca write that Cunha is ‘already headed for Wolverhampton’, and that Felipe should join his fellow Brazilian in heading to Molineux.

On the defender, Marca say that Felipe has asked to leave the club, and his request has not been met with any opposition.

Felipe is into the final year of his contract with the Spanish club, and stands to leave for free next summer.

With Atleti having gone out of the Champions League at the group stages, the club is trying to bring in as much cash in January as possible. Felipe won’t fetch much, but seemingly they don’t want to lose him for absolutely nothing.

Wolves are said to be optimistic that the negotiations will come to fruition.

The suggestion from Marca is that Wolves are yet to reach an agreement with Felipe in terms of his possible salary.

Wolves are seeking to strengthen in both attack and defence next month, having struggled to score goals and being without experienced cover at the back.

Wolves have scored just eight Premier League goals so far this term, and Cunha – while not prolific himself – might be able to increase productivity in the final third.

Felipe, 33, has lots of experience under his belt and can provide cover and competition for Nathan Collins and Maximilian Kilman.

Wolves to make headway this week with Cunha and Felipe deals?

Marca’s report says that Cunha’s move to Wolves is ‘on track’, and that negotiations are on for the pair.

It does sound as though progress is being made.

It will be good if Wolves can sort these two deals out nice and quickly, and the duo can come in as soon as the January window opens.

It is paramount that Lopetegui gets the players he wants in, and they can then settle in as quickly as possible.

These two players can make a real difference for Wanderers, who have seriously underwhelmed in the first half of the season.
