Wolves transfer news: Interest in Matheus Nunes receding

Interest in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes is reportedly receding, as the summer transfer window approaches.

That is the suggestion from The Athletic, who have reported on what could be happening at Molineux this summer in terms of player incomings and outgoings.

Julen Lopetegui is ready to oversee his first summer window at the club.

And there will likely be a lot of chopping and changing.

Players like Raul Jimenez, Adama Traore and Joao Moutinho are all expected to move on.

And of course, Ruben Neves has long been linked with an exit and he could depart if Wolves receive an appropriate offer.

One man who has been written about fairly frequently over the last few months is Nunes.

It was suggested that Chelsea and Liverpool both had interest in the 24-year-old. Manchester United were then also named as possible suitors.

But The Athletic reported at the weekend that interest in Nunes is actually receding heading into the summer.

Nunes has had a fairly indifferent first season at Wolves.

There is undoubtedly a hugely talented player there. But we have only seen the best of him in flashes.

His best performances for the club came against Chelsea and Brentford, when Neves was suspended. Lee Naylor described him around that period as ‘absolutely outstanding’.

Unfortunately the consistency just hasn’t quite been there. But this is something that could actually benefit Wolves in the coming months.

Supposedly, interest is receding, meaning there will be a better chance of keeping holding of him.

Wolves do want to be keeping Nunes really. Because it would be very painful to see a player like this go elsewhere and thrive.

If it’s true that interest in Nunes is dying down then that’s a positive for Wolves.

Yes, he has struggled to live up the hype this season.

But offloading him after just one term just feels like a hasty decision.

Watching him play, you can see that he is a very unique midfielder. Very few can do what he does.

Sometimes this season, he’s had to take one for the team and play out of position. Other times, he’s been guilty of overcomplicating things and being wasteful.

It’s made for a fairly average first campaign from him.

But next season he could really thrive, with a year of Premier League experience under his belt.

Potentially if Neves leaves, he could flourish as Wolves’ main man.
