Sporting CP are drawing up a plan in case Matheus Nunes leaves the club this summer, with Wolves interested in the player.
The midfielder is highly coveted having enjoyed a fantastic past couple of years.
Nunes has emerged as one of the most talented players in Portugal.
He’s come in for high praise in recent times for his contributions to Sporting’s 2020/21 title win and their 2nd place finish the season after.
Nunes is thought to be a top target for Wolves, with Bruno Lage a big fan.
But so far this summer, no bid has been forthcoming.
It has been claimed that Wolves made an offer to Nunes, but apparently he turned it down.
Sporting manager Ruben Amorim is reluctant to lose the 23-year-old maestro, but it would seem the club are preparing for potential life with him.
According to Record, a plan is being outlined ahead of a possible sale.
They want to sign two midfield players in the event that he leaves.
It remains to be seen if Wolves are able to bring him in. Lage was able to get a look at him up close this weekend in the game against Sporting.
Nunes did impress, and his performance came after it had been claimed that Wolves were going to make a last push to sign him over the weekend.
Wolves bid could come soon as Sporting prepare for life after Nunes
Perhaps this is a sign that Wolves are ready to intensify their pursuit of Nunes.
The notion that Sporting are preparing for life after Nunes may well suggest that the door is not firmly closed.
But if Wolves are ready to push hard for Nunes then club officials must get to work quickly.
The new season is starting this weekend, and Wolves’ squad is looking worryingly thin.
