Wolves strike record deal for Liverpool-linked Matheus Nunes

The Midlands club are ready to spend big to reinforce Bruno Lage’s midfield


Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have, on Monday evening, closed an agreement for a potentially game-changing addition, according to reports.

The player understood to be on the verge of a move to Molineux? Matheus Nunes.

Nunes, of course, has been hotly tipped for a move to the English top-flight for several weeks now.

This comes with the midfielder having been named as a key target on the part of Liverpool, amid the ongoing efforts of the powers that be at Anfield to reinforce Jurgen Klopp’s midfield ranks.

Such a move, however, evidently failed to come to fruition.

And this has since opened the door for Wolves to step through in altogether decisive fashion.

As per Portuguese outlet Record, in claims backed by transfer journalist Nicolo Schira, an agreement has been struck between the respective boards at Sporting CP and Wolves, for Nunes to link up with the latter with immediate effect.

This comes after the transfer team in the English midlands agreed to fork over an alleged €45 million, plus a further 5 million in bonuses.

The 23-year-old Portugal international, in turn, is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year contract with Wolves.
