Wolves reportedly have no plans to sell Matheus Nunes in January.
Big claims emerged last night from The Telegraph that Liverpool are going to target the 24-year-old.
The Reds have liked Nunes for a while, and were keen to snap him up in the summer.
But it was Wolves who won the race, paying Sporting CP around £42 million.
Apparently, Liverpool made a commitment to bid for him after that. The Telegraph say any deal is likely to be around £44 million.
Liverpool’s need for new midfielders was laid bare last night, when they were beaten 3-1 by Brentford in the Premier League.
The Bees were too much for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have been criticised for lacking quality in the middle of the park.
So Nunes is seemingly high on their agenda.
But talkSPORT have provided an update that may offer some comfort to Wolves fans.
Supposedly, Wolves actually don’t have any plans to sell Nunes this window.
Keeping Matheus Nunes is key to Wolves staying out of trouble, as reports claims club have no plans to sell in January
Hopefully this turns out to be true.
Wolves cannot be losing Nunes this month. We may not yet have seen the best of him, but on his first start under Julen Lopetegui against Manchester United he looked top-class.
He is going to be key for Wolves going forward.
Selling Nunes this month would not only be embarrassing, since he only joined five months ago, but it would be reckless.
It could be touch and go for Wolves this season in terms of survival. Retaining players like Nunes will be key to that.
