Relegation-threatened side Wolves may be forced to take a significant price cut on their most prized possessions if they are to no longer play Premier League football next campaign.

According to Football Insider, Molineux-based outfit Wolves would have to take a price hit on Liverpool target Matheus Nunes.

The Reds are currently on the search for reinforcements for the midfield, and Nunes has been labelled a top target, alongside Jude Bellingham and Mason Mount.

Nunes made the jump from his home nation Portugal to join Wolves, who just pipped Liverpool in the race for the 24-year-old’s signature.

A club-record fee of £42.2m was recorded for the Portuguese youngster, but now Wolves may have to sell him for £30-40m if they are demoted to England’s second division.

At current, Wolves are 13th in the league table but are still only three points safe from the relegation spots after winning just one of their last five outings.

Nunes has been a key part of Julen Lopetegui’s plan and has played 29 times under his manager, but he is yet to score for his side.

Spanish boss Lopetegui has showered Nunes with praise this season for his versatility with the Portuguese star plying his trade in a plethora of positions, including left wing.

If Wolves were to be relegated, this would hand the Merseysiders a huge boost and would free up some much-needed funds to lure Bellingham from Dortmund.
