Report: Club now recognise £42m midfielder may leave them next year, Liverpool are huge admirers

Wolves are aware that they may have to sell new signing Matheus Nunes after just a year, following links with Liverpool.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who claim that Liverpool are ‘huge admirers’ of Wolves’ latest addition.

The Midlands club secured Nunes’ signing for a fee of up to £42.2m last night. However, they reportedly ‘recognise’ that he may only be passing through at Molineux.

It’s said that if the 23-year-old realises his potential this season, they may ‘only get a year out of him.’ There is good news for Wolves fans though, as in that scenario, he would reportedly be sold for a ‘far bigger’ fee than the one he was signed for.

Nunes joins Wolves, but Liverpool won’t lose interest

We wrote yesterday about why it would make sense for Liverpool to still go in for Nunes next summer.

Although Wolves fans may not like it, it looks as though their club is potentially preparing for a similar scenario.

Of course that depends on him fulfilling his promise this season in the Premier League. Either way, it’s very smart business from Wolves.

Either they have a brilliant player for a year or two and make a massive profit, or they’ve signed a slightly less brilliant player but get to keep him for the length of his five-year contract. It’s a win-win.

It all now depends on the player. There have been enough links to likes of Liverpool and Manchester City to suggest that those kind of clubs have him on their radar.

If he can step-up and deliver for Wolves, there’s every reason they’ll come calling again. That isn’t to diminish Wolves in any way, it’s just the way of football.

But then again, Ruben Neves is a perfect example of how you simply never know. Many would have expected the Portugal international to have moved onto a higher level by now. Five years on from his signing though, he’s still at Molineux.

With he and Nunes pulling the strings, as well as Joao Moutinho, Morgan Gibbs-White and Leander Dendoncker, they now have a midfield to rival most of the top sides in the league. For how long that is, only time will tell.
