The Telegraph are reporting that Liverpool are exploring a bid to buy Wolverhampton Wanderers and Portugal midfielder Matheus Nunes.
The broadsheet mentions that there was an agreement made in the summer when Nunes was close to signing at Anfield but ultimately the transfer did not go through, with the midfielder joining Wolves instead.
Nunes, who was born in Brazil but plays for Portugal, did not make the FIFA World Cup squad despite making appearances for his country in the UEFA Nations League earlier this year.
Wolves signed Nunes for £38m in the summer and he’s since made 14 appearances in the Premier League, registering one assist. It’s understood that Liverpool made a commitment in the summer to bid for him and that it’s expected that he’d likely cost around $50m (£44m).
Liverpool and Wolves have a history of transfers between them when Diogo Jota moved to Anfield in September 2020.
Last season Pep Guardiola described Nunes as “one of the best players in the world today”, after City hammered Sporting Lisbon 5-0
Speaking to The Express and Star last week Nunes said: “I put more pressure on myself because I want to be the best, but I don’t think I did enough. I have the hunger now to get to where I want to be.
“I want to be better than I was in the last six months, and I think these first six months of 2023 are going to be better individually for me. mind and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to show that.”
“I have that in my mind and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to show that.”
