Liverpool reportedly want to sign Matheus Nunes from Wolves.
According to The Telegraph, the Reds are back in for the midfielder, whom they wanted to sign in the summer.
Liverpool were pipped by Wolves, who completed a deal for around £42 million.
The Telegraph’s report claims Liverpool made a commitment to bid for him subsequently and that deal is still very much alive this month.
It is stated that any move would likely happen ahead of the 2023/24 season.
The general feeling in the summer when Nunes signed for Wolves was that the club had done extremely well to get a player of his quality.
Nunes is quite unique in the way he plays, and he had a huge amount of interest in him.
Soon after completing the move to Molineux, there were already suggestions that Nunes might only do one season at Wolves before moving on.
Now there’s this report from John Percy, which seems to give a little more credibility to those suggestions.
Apparently, any deal is likely to be around the £44 million mark.
Essentially, Wolves would sell for the same amount they paid Sporting CP.
A bombshell claim about Matheus Nunes, Wolves simply cannot sell, especially for £44 million
This is quite the claim from The Telegraph.
There have been whispers about Nunes since he signed for Wolves.
Some Wolves fans could have begrudgingly accepted Nunes only playing one season. But many will not accept if Wolves sell the player for just £44 million.
That would be a ridiculous decision. Unless, of course, the club suffers relegation. In which case Wolves would likely have to take much less.
But Nunes is a top quality player. We haven’t seen the best of him yet, but you can tell in the way he plays how good he can be.
Wolves have had previous with allowing players to depart Molineux too easily. The Conor Coady exit remains a very strange call.
Wolves agreeing to sell Nunes just months after he joined, and not for any profit, would be unfathomable.
