Liverpool are ready to move on from Wolves star Matheus Nunes, as they seek to bolster their midfield for next season.
Nunes has supposedly been on the Reds’ radar for some time.
There were reports that Liverpool wanted Nunes even before he made his move to Molineux last summer from Sporting CP.
Ahead of the January transfer window, reports surfaced that Liverpool were ready to make a move for Nunes at the end of the current season.
It had been suggested that there was an agreement in place for him to move to Anfield after just one season with Wolves.
But in a report from The Telegraph yesterday, it was mentioned that the clause allowing Liverpool to trigger a summer deal has been removed.
Consequently, Liverpool are now ready to move on from Nunes and look at other options.
They’ve been linked with players such as Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher and Jude Bellingham to name but a few.
It is stated that Wolves would demand in excess of £50 million to sell Nunes. That would net the club a small profit on the 24-year-old.
But that asking price is likely to deter suitors.
Nunes has unfortunately not really lived up to his billing during his time in England so far.
Good news for Wolves with Liverpool set to move on from Matheus Nunes
Nunes hasn’t had the best debut season with Wolves.
But it is still good news if Liverpool are ready to look elsewhere for a new midfielder.
You can see with Nunes that the talent is there.
We have seen, in flashes, that amazing ability to dribble through the lines and carry the ball great distances.
But quite often he has overplayed, and has been wasteful with his passing in games, much to the frustration of the crowd.
And there have been instances where he’s had to play out of position to do a job for the team, which is another reason he hasn’t quite done as well as many anticipated.
Perhaps next season, if Wolves are still in the Premier League, we could finally see the best of him.
