Wolves: Fabrizio Romano drops Matheus Nunes transfer news

Fabrizio Romano has dropped a big Wolves transfer update that will please Bruno Lage as he aims to rebuild his squad.

What’s the news?

The news surrounds a move for Sporting Lisbon player Matheus Nunes, with Romano tweeting: “Wolves have still no agreement with Matheus Nunes on personal terms. Talks ongoing with Sporting on the fee for one week, but the real issue is on player side.”

Should Wolves sign Nunes?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Despite the fact there hasn’t been an agreement yet, Lage will be delighted that talks are continuing, and he will be hoping to add Nunes to the squad ahead of next season.

Lage surely buzzing

Wolves will be aiming for another top-half finish in the Premier League next season following a solid if unspectacular first campaign under Lage.

With John Ruddy, Romain Saiss, and Marcal all leaving the club and the futures of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves uncertain, there will surely be an influx of new faces.

According to the Portuguese news outlet Record (via the Sun), Wolves have agreed on a deal for €45m and €5m in add-ons (£43m) for Nunes.

The midfielder played 33 matches as Sporting Lisbon came up short in their league title defence, scoring three times and registering one assist.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

The 23-year-old’s passing ability is one of his main strengths, creating six big chances for Sporting as well as registering an impressive 36.5 accurate passes per match (86%).

The Portugal international isn’t shy about shirking his defensive duties either, winning 1.3 tackles per match whilst only being dribbled past 0.7 times each game.

£43m might sound like a lot, but if Lage wants to improve his team ahead of next season and add a player who can provide plenty of qualities at both ends of the pitch, then a move for Nunes is a no-brainer.

Wolves will be hoping a deal can be wrapped up as soon as possible and it would be a big statement of intent going forward and one that consequently delights their manager.
