Transfer race heats up for £38.3m midfielder who ‘will do everything to leave’ Portugal amid Liverpool links – report

Posted by

Liverpool-linked midfielder Matheus Nunes is allegedly prepared to ‘do everything to leave’ the Portuguese top-flight amid reports of growing interest in his services, according to Correio da Manha.

The 23-year-old star registered 9 goal contributions in 50 appearances (across all competitions) last term.

“CM knows that the player is ready to take the leap and will do everything to leave, although he has not put any pressure on the club to release him,” the outlet reported (via Sport Witness).

The Sporting CP star’s willingness to find a move away from the Primeira Liga will be music to interest clubs’ ears – including Liverpool, who are said to have thrown their hat into the ring for his services.

“Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton were joined by Chelsea and more recently Liverpool,” the publication further added.
