Mathues Nunes on Liverpool's watchlist

Despite any prospective transaction being postponed until the summer, Matheus Nunes, who recently joined Liverpool, is still “one to monitor”

The midfielder, who joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Sporting CP in the summer, has featured fewer than 20 times for the club this year.

It’s surprising Nunes is already being linked with a transfer away after joining Wolves less than six months ago in a club-record £42.2 million deal from Sporting. Nunes, who Pep Guardiola of Manchester City said “one of the best players in the world,” is drawing interest from top Premier League clubs, with Liverpool reportedly interested in a summer transfer.

According to sources, Liverpool are purportedly rekindling their interest in Nunes after previously “admiring” him before his move to Molineux. The former Premier League winners are reportedly considering a £44 million deal for Nunes, which would be finalised during the summer transfer window.

The article continues, “Liverpool will now carry out an agreement to make an offer for the Portuguese international after he almost joined the club last year.” Nunes, who reportedly earns £85,000 a week, could emulate Diogo Jota, a teammate from Portugal who joined Jurgen Klopp’s squad from Wolves in September 2020.

Of course, Jota and Nunes are only two of the Portuguese players on the Liverpool team; in the summer, Darwin Nunez joined the Reds from Benfica. The Nunes acquisition, which clearly benefits Liverpool in the market, may make sense in the summer, but also raises doubts about any January midfielder searches.
