Liverpool have reportedly cooled their interest in signing Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes, with the Reds now exploring other targets ahead of the summer.
According to Goal, the Merseyside giants are backing away from signing the 24-year-old Portuguese international having already pulled out of the race to sign Jude Bellingham, with Liverpool seemingly doing a complete 180 on their midfield transfer plans.
Nunes has been one of Liverpool’s main targets heading into the summer, alongside the likes of Bellingham and Jude Bellingham. However, it now appears that Jurgen Klopp’s side will look at other options in the market as the German manager looks to overhaul his entire midfield.
Recently lauded as ‘incredible’ by BBC Sport pundit Dion Dublin, Nunes has been one of the few bright sparks for Wolves this season as Julen Lopetegui’s side look to pull away from the Premier League relegation battle, with the midfielder already tipped for bigger things beyond Molineux.
However, it now appears that Liverpool won’t be the next destination for Nunes despite strong links to Anfield in recent weeks, with the Reds now focusing on other midfield targets after what has been a bombshell week for the Merseyside giants.
Liverpool could regret pulling out of Nunes race alongside Bellingham
The news that Liverpool will no longer be chasing Bellingham is arguably the largest transfer story to break this year, with the Borussia Dortmund a player who looked almost set to join the Reds before the summer market had even opened, and the same can also be said for Nunes.
The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool since the closure of the January window, and with Anfield side now cooling their interest in Nunes, Klopp is taking a gamble in going against his best wishes and looking tor rebuild the squad from a financial perspective, one that could backfire in a massive way.
