Wolves: Matheus Cunha missing from Atletico squad as ‘exit nears’

Wolves: Matheus Cunha missing from Atletico squad as ‘exit nears’ -Wolves News

Wolves are in pole position for the signing of Atletico Madrid forward Matheus Cunha over both Everton and Leeds United, says journalist Sam Leveridge.

The Lowdown: Old Gold in talks…

The Old Gold’s desire to bring in Cunha is no secret to both fans and the media alike with manager Julen Lopetegui even confirming their interest recently.

As the January transfer window looms, Fosun International will be looking at many different avenues to strengthen the Molineux side who currently sit bottom of the Premier League table.

Scoring fewer goals than any other side in the English top flight, new attacking options could be a must in the winter window.

The Latest: Wolves lead chase for Cunha…

Cunha appears to be their top target with Marca reporter Leveridge now sharing an update on Wolves’ pursuit of the Brazilian.

He shares that the 23-year-old was left out of Atletico’s squad for their recent friendly against Ponferradina as an ‘exit nears’.

Leveridge adds an update on his possible new club with Lopetegui currently in the driving seat for his signing, with Wolves’ two other competitors, Everton and Leeds, falling behind.

He said (via Twitter):

“Matheus Cunha not in the Atlético Madrid squad for their friendly vs Ponferradina tonight as an exit nears. Seems Wolves continue to lead the race for him, but Everton and Leeds also interested.”

The Verdict: Get it done…

Wolves are reportedly deep in talks for the South American ace who shone at former club Hertha Berlin over the 2020/2021 season.

His form in the Bundesliga indicates Cunha could be of use for Lopetegui, and he appears to have the physical attributes to be a success, having been called a ‘very fast’ forward by former coach Maurizio Jaccobacci.

According to Jaccobacci also, the Atletico wantaway has an ‘excellent goal instinct‘ – something Wolves are in dire need of right now.
