Liverpool “really appreciate” Matheus Nunes

It is no real secret that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is in need of further additions to help bolster his midfield ranks, with Wolverhampton Wanderers gem Matheus Nunes one figure who has been tipped for a move to Anfield of late.

According to The Telegraph, the Merseysiders could look to sign the Portugal international on a £44m deal at the end of the season, with the 24-year-old having seemingly been close to joining the Reds prior to his £38m switch to Molineux over the summer.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano – speaking to GIVEMESPORT – has now also suggested that a summer move could be a possibility, with Klopp and co likely to utilise their relationship with the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in order to strike an agreement.

The transfer guru stated: “Not for January, but I think this is something that could happen in the summer. He is one of the players they really appreciate and was already on Liverpool’s list before he joined Wolves. They have a very good relationship with his agent.”

The six-time European champions have already used that Mendes connection in the recent past to snap up another impressive figure from the Old Gold, with Diogo Jota having been signed on a £41m deal back in the summer of 2020.

Although the 26-year-old has endured notable spells out with injury since then, when he has featured he has typically impressed as a result of his attacking versatility and clinical presence in front of goal.

That latter trait is showcased by the fact that the dynamic ace has 34 goals and 14 assists to his name in just 93 appearances across all fronts to date, having previously been described as an “exceptional player” by his manager.

To be able to replicate that transfer masterclass with the signing of Nunes could well prove to be Klopp’s next astute piece of business, with the £85k-per-week “baller” – as described by journalist Aadam Patel – already thriving in the early months of his Premier League career.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane in action

How much did Liverpool sell Senegal forward Sadio Mane for in the summer?

The former Sporting Lisbon ace has impressively averaged 1.9 tackles per game in the top flight this season to illustrate his ball-winning prowess, while he can also offer a real bonus creatively as he ranks in the top 5% in Europe for progressive passes received among those in his position.

A talent who has been described as “one of the best players in the world today” by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Nunes could well follow in Jota’s footsteps and quickly cement himself as a key figure for the Anfield outfit.
