Liverpool could reportedly sign Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes this summer for £39m, with the Portuguese international a target for the Reds.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the 24-year-old isn’t a priority for Jurgen Klopp’s side this summer, though Nunes remains on Liverpool’s transfer shortlist as we head into the summer, with the Wolves star impressing in the Premier League in his first year in England.
Labelled as a ‘complete’ player by Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui, Nunes was wanted by Liverpool even before his move to Molineux last summer, and it appears that the Reds are ready to keep fighting for the Brazilian-born midfielder this summer.
Moreover, with Wolves seemingly valuing Nunes at just £39m, a potential bargain could be on the cards for Liverpool if they’re willing to go the distance for the 24-year-old maestro, with Romano certain that the midfielder has been wanted by the Reds for some time.
The Italian transfer guru said on Liverpool’s interest in the midfielder: “Liverpool have had Matheus Nunes on their list for a long time, but he’s not a priority now, they have other names on top of the list. I think the asking price could be close to €40-45m (£35m-£39m).”
Liverpool have to move for Nunes if Wolves only want £39m
£39m for a midfielder as good as Nunes would be considered by many in this day and age to be a bargain, and as such, Liverpool can’t afford to wait around on a deal like this, with the Wolves star exactly what Klopp needs to rejuvenate his squad.
With the window creeping ever closer to swinging open, Liverpool know they can’t waste a single minute or penny in what is to be their biggest squad overhaul in Klopp’s tenure at the club, and signing Nunes could be an exception addition to the team right out the gate.
