Wolves: Portuguese newspaper shares Matheus Nunes update

Wolves: Portuguese newspaper shares Matheus Nunes update -Premier League News

Portuguese newspaper Record (via Sport Witness) has provided an update on the Wolverhampton Wanderers‘ pursuit of Sporting CP midfielder Matheus Nunes. 

The lowdown: Hot property

A reported target for Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and a host of other elite clubs this summer, Nunes has certainly caught the eye with an astronomical path to stardom in Portugal so far.

Born in Brazil, the stylish midfielder has made 99 first-team outings for Sporting and recently became a fully-fledged Portugal international, having flourished for the Lisbon-based outfit.

Despite the eye-opening interest from across Europe, the Wanderers could now be set to win the hotly contested race to sign Nunes…

The latest: Offer ‘prepared’

As per Record, translated by SW, Wolves are now ‘prepared’ to make an offer worth €45million (£38million) plus €5million (£4million) in bonuses to make the deal happen.

It’s claimed that all parties have ‘everything forwarded’ to see a switch to Molineux come to fruition as Bruno Lage attempts to bolster the ranks and prepares for life after the highly sought-after Ruben Neves.

The report also states that the ‘process should really advance’ over the coming days as the Old Gold look to tie up a transfer for the man dubbed ‘tenacious’ by football analyst EBL, who holds a Master’s degree in Sports Performance Analysis.

The verdict: Sensational signing

Given the levels of illustrious interest, if the Wanderers can indeed beat the competition to his capture then Lage will have added a bonafide superstar in the making to the mix at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground.

Predominantly operating as a box-to-box midfielder, last season the eight-cap Portugal ace scored four times and provided five assists in 50 appearances, highlighting an eye for goal as well as durability that would be a welcome addition to the Molineux ranks as another long, truncated, campaign looms.

When compared to Neves in the 2021/22 campaign, Nunes, two years younger than the 25-year-old, earned a higher average rating than his compatriot (7.08 vs 6.85), completed more successful dribbles (2.5 vs 0.8) and was booked on five fewer occasions having made an identical number of league outings (WhoScored).

Already seemingly an adequate replacement for Neves, if Nunes replicates the wantaway fan favourite and continues on his career trajectory then Wolves may have landed a player with the ability to become a force on the biggest stage possible in years to come.
