Liverpool transfers: Fabrizio Romano reveals Liverpool have already spoken to ‘unbelievable’ player they really want to sign
Liverpool have already spoken directly to Matheus Nunes about the possibility of moving to Anfield.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, this is the case. Liverpool and Nunes were in contact last summer before the midfielder signed with Wolves, according to the transfer expert, who was speaking on his YouTube channel this morning.
Less than six months have passed, and Romano now claims the Reds are’very, really keen’ in bringing the 24-year-old to the club.
“Not just Jude Bellingham, they [Liverpool] have other options. It’s not just as an alternative, because Matheus Nunes can be one more midfielder in the sense that Liverpool will probably lose Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on a free. From what I’m told, Naby Keita also has real possibilities to leave Liverpool on a free transfer.
“Let’s see if the situation will change with the contact talks in the next months, but this is a possibility,” he explained.
“This is why Matheus Nunes can be a serious option for Liverpool. I’m told a potential move to Liverpool was already discussed with the player when he accepted last summer to join Wolverhampton from Sporting.
“The player was tempted by the Premier League in general, but already discussed this possibility with Liverpool. So, this is what happened with Matheus Nunes and Liverpool. Keep an eye on this possibility for Matheus Nunes to join the club in the summer. Liverpool are really, really interested.”
Nunes set to get his Anfield move
Unless anything unforeseen happens, this is a transfer that looks pretty straightforward to get done.
Reading between the lines, it appears that some kind of guarantee has been made to Nunes from Liverpool.
