Wolves’ view on Liverpool’s pursuit of Matheus Nunes
Wolves’ stance on Liverpool’s interest in Matheus Nunes.
According to sources, the Wolves are not currently aware of Liverpool’s alleged interest in midfielder Matheus Nunes.
Despite being frequently linked to a move to Anfield throughout the summer, Nunes joined Wolves from Sporting CP back in August for a club-record fee of £38m.
Liverpool reportedly still wants to sign Nunes and will make a new move for him this summer. According to recent rumours in England, Liverpool believes a £44 million bid should be sufficient to ultimately get him to Merseyside.
But mp3bullet understands that Wolves are unaware of any clubs registering an interest in Nunes, and they see him as a long-term part of their future at Molineux anyway.

Julen Lopetegui recently commented on Nunes being linked with an exit, insisting that the midfielder is happy at Wolves and they are not considering letting him go.
“We can say that Matheus is our player, he’s a Wolves player and he’s so happy to be here,” Lopetegui said.
Nunes has now played 16 times for Wolves this season across all competitions, and oddly, his next game could take place at Anfield when they play Liverpool this weekend in the FA Cup.
Liverpool’s midfielder search has continued with their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham. Real Madrid are also competing for the teenager’s signature.
