Liverpool to retain interest in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes

Nunes could prove to be a cheaper alternative to the Dortmund star.

Liverpool will be back to retain an interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Matheus Nunes, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The 24-year-old star only moved to the Midlands outfit from Sporting CP over the summer but was reportedly on Liverpool’s radar prior to his transfer and will be closely monitored.

A fresh report from Portuguese outlet UOL (via The Independent) has reported that the Reds have picked Nunes as an alternative target to Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham is believed to be the top priority for Jurgen Klopp as he looks to solve his engine room issues, although his £103 million valuation could prove to be a stumbling block.

Meanwhile, Nunes could prove to be a cheaper alternative to the Dortmund star if the Reds are unwilling to break their transfer record.

Jones believes that Liverpool admired Nunes prior to his arrival in the Premier League but that Wolves’ current focus will be to transform their fortunes rather than retaining their prized assets.

In an interview with GiveMeSport, he said: “Liverpool were actually interested in him before he joined Wolves.

“So, they will continue to retain an interest there, but Wolves can’t think about it right now – all their focus is on how this current group of players can turn around the season.”

Nunes has only made six appearances for Wolves so far, providing one assist, but his performances over the last year have been impressive.
