Wolves ‘have an agreement’ in place to complete the signing of Atletico Madrid attacker Matheus Cunha in January, according to reports from Spain.
The Lowdown: Cunha on the move?
The 23-year-old has struggled to become a key part of Diego Simeone’s plans at Atletico this season, invariably having to accept a squad role for the La Liga giants.
Cunha has only been handed two starts in the league in 2022/23, highlighting his lack of minutes, and it could be that a move away materialises in the near future.
The Latest: Wolves ‘have an agreement’ for Cunha
His current club accept that ‘he will leave’, and it looks as though the Old Gold are in pole position to get their man.
The Verdict: Could be an inspired signing
Julen Lopetegui’s reputation as an “elite” manager, in the words of Wolves chairman Jeff Shi, could play a pivotal role in Wolves acquiring Cunha’s services and he is someone whose natural ability could transform an attack lacking a spark too often.
