Fabrizio Romano has dropped a big Wolves transfer update that will please Bruno Lage as he aims to rebuild his squad.
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.”
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.
Wolves will be aiming for another top-half finish in the Premier League next season following a solid if unspectacular first campaign under Lage.
The midfielder played 33 matches as Sporting Lisbon came up short in their league title defence, scoring three times and registering one assist.
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.
