Although Matheus Nunez joined Wolves only during the summer transfer window, the Midlands club may soon lose several of its top players as a result of the season’s poor start.
During his time in Portugal, the Portuguese midfielder made an impact, especially in the Champions League game with Manchester City.
Manchester City and Liverpool will now battle for Nunes, according to the Sunday Mirror (via the Daily Express).
According to the report, Nunes put delayed moving to Wolves in the hopes that Liverpool would try to sign him, but that didn’t happen.
Nunes moved to Wolves this summer but Liverpool plan to monitor the 24-year-old in his maiden season in the Premier League after a £38million switch from Sporting Lisbon in August.
This season, Liverpool’s midfield problems have been evident, therefore it wouldn’t be surprising to see them make a move in the near future.
A player of Nunes’ caliber won’t want to play for a team fighting to stay in the Premier League if Wolves’ dismal run persists, and the desire of playing in Europe with either Manchester City or Liverpool might be too much to pass up.
