Reports- Jurgen Klopp’s summer bolstered by £20m slash of midfielder’s asking price
With Jurgen Klopp planning to sign several midfielders, Liverpool will have a busy summer. One of the most frequently linked players, Matheus Nunes, may see his asking price drop if recent reports are to be believed.
According to Football Insider, “Wolves would have to considerably reduce the asking price for Matheus Nunes, who is wanted by Liverpool, if they were relegated this year.”
‘Having only signed Nunes last summer, Wolves are holding out for bids of over £50million if they were to sell to Premier League rivals, but demotion to the Championship would force them to drop their asking price to £30-40million’.
Seeing as Wolves are currently sat in 13th position, it’s fair to assume that the chances of the Portuguese midfielder having his price so severely cut are rather unlikely at this stage with just 11 games remaining.
The 24-year-old will be hoping that his next season will both be spent in the Premier League and with a team that can assure him more security around his status as a player in the top tier of English football.
Currently sat just three points above the drop zone though, will mean that Julen Lopetegui will be trying his very best not to get sucked into a relegation battle that seems to be consuming most of the bottom half of the league.
If we are to sign Jude Bellingham then most of our transfer kitty will be blown on one man and our boss will be looking to add more strength to our midfield, with several cheaper additions.
Given the already present links to the former Sporting Lisbon man and this chance of a lower transfer fee, perhaps it’s time to start watching results at the Molineux Stadium a little bit closer!
