Wolves: Dean Jones reacts to Matheus Cunha transfer links

Wolves: Dean Jones reacts to Matheus Cunha transfer links - Follow up

Journalist Dean Jones has said that it would be ‘really interesting’ if Wolves manage to sign Atletico Madrid’s Matheus Cunha.

The Lowdown: Offer being prepared

The Old Gold are keen on making up to six January signings and are believed to be in discussions with up to 15 players ahead of the winter market officially opening in two weeks’ time.

Cunha seems to be a top target at Molineux, with recent reports suggesting that Wolves are preparing an offer for the 23-year-old and have been in contact with the player’s representatives.

Hailed as a “magician” by his former club RB Leipzig, Cunha is also wanted by Midlands rivals Aston Villa despite netting just seven times in 54 games for Atletico.

The Latest: Jones’ comments

Jones was speaking to GiveMeSport regarding the rumours on Wolves and Cunha. He said a transfer to Molineux would be ‘really interesting’ and added that Julen Lopetegui may think that the Brazilian could raise the standards of the other players at Molineux.

The journalist said in relation to this transfer rumour: “Maybe Lopetegui feels that it’s something that can improve the level of the players around him. So, this would be a really interesting signing.”

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Cunha has shown his quality in the past despite struggling in La Liga, contributing to 23 goals in 40 games for Hertha Berlin.

Adding to Wolves’ attacking ranks should be a top priority for Lopetegui next month, as they have netted just eight times in 15 Premier League games so far this season, the lowest tally in the division.

Cunha can also play on either wing, which could come in handy when summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic returns from injury next year, so fingers crossed that it is Wolves who win the race for the Brazilian’s services.
