There has still not yet been any offers made from Wolves for Matheus Nunes, with Liverpool having now joined the race for the midfielder.
According to Jornal de Noticias, the 23-year-old remains the subject of interest for a host of clubs.
Wolves are mentioned as the club to have first asked about the maestro.
But no offers have been forthcoming for Nunes so far, from Wolves or anyone else.
It is stated by the Portuguese outlet that Liverpool are now in the hunt for the star.
The Reds have joined Chelsea and Wolves in the hunt, with Manchester City having also been mentioned previously.
Nunes has been heavily linked with a move to Molineux for a number of weeks now.
Reports in Portugal have previously indicated that a move to Wanderers would be the most likely this summer.
But Wolves’ lack of a bid for the player so far does cast doubt on that.
It may well suggest that the club are waiting to sell players first.
Surely, if the money was there, Wolves would be wasting no time in trying to bring Nunes into the club. He is a fantastic box-to-box player, and someone who could potentially take the team’s engine room to the next level.
It remains to be seen if Wolves will eventually come in with an offer for Nunes. Bruno Lage would certainly hope for that to happen, having supposedly urged his superiors to hurry.
But with a number of huge clubs also keen, it is very possible they will be beaten to the punch.
Liverpool’s interest in Matheus Nunes is bad news for Wolves
Liverpool being interested in Nunes is far from ideal for Wolves and their hopes of landing Nunes.
The Reds are also in need of a box-to-box midfielder at the moment.
They are an extremely attractive proposition for any player right now, since they are competing for titles and are managed by Jurgen Klopp.
Ideally, Wolves will soon put in an actual bid for Nunes.
But one gets the feeling it just won’t happen until some players are sold.
By the time that happens, it could well be too late for Wolves over Nunes.
