Liverpool are now ‘favourites’ to sign Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes this summer, that’s according to Football Insider.
The Portugal international was linked with the Reds at the start of the season but instead headed to Molineux after leaving Sporting Lisbon.
The agency company that represents the 24-year-old also represents Darwin Nunez meaning Jurgen Klopp’s side could be in a great position to secure the dynamic midfielder’s signature in the summer if they decide to make a move.

The report adds that the West Midlands outfit will demand a fee in the region of £50m for the midfielder but would be forced to slash their asking price to between £30-40m if they’re to be relegated from the Premier League.
Wolves’ 4-2 defeat to Leeds United yesterday, a game in which Nunes was sent off despite being an unused substitute, leaves them just three points outside the drop zone having played more games than most of the sides around them meaning a return to the Championship is a very real concern at the moment.
It’s no secret that Klopp is desperate to strengthen his midfield options in the summer and with the powerful presence and strong running he offers in the middle of the park a move would certainly make sense.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the summer as the Wolves man isn’t the only midfielder being linked with a move to Anfield.

The problem is LFC is always linked with people who could fix their problems but when the time comes, different people/ positions are strengthened. Worst of it all, you begin hearing things like; we might not add another, we are happy with the current squad and so forth then when the transfer is closed, the complain comes that our players are injured forgeting of what we said during/ before transfers.
That is why Teams with many good players shall always take the Trophy away from LFC like; Man City, Real Madrid and so on since their bench is just too good.
