Wolves: Wanderers prepare ‘last move’ for Matheus Nunes

Wolves: Wanderers prepare ‘last move’ for Matheus Nunes -Wolves News

Wolves will reportedly make a ‘last move’ for transfer target Matheus Nunes this weekend when Wanderers come up against Sporting CP in a friendly.

The Lowdown: Nunes a long-time target

Throughout this summer, Wolves have been constantly linked with bringing the midfielder to the club, with Liverpool also thought to be interested in signing him.

Nunes, who has a release clause of €60m (£51m), has been a key man for Sporting in recent years, making 33 Primeira Liga appearances last season and also forcing his way into Portugal’s team, winning eight caps to date.

Ironically, Wolves take on Sporting on Saturday evening, in what could prove to be a more important day off the pitch than on it.

The Latest: Wolves to make ‘last move’

According to Correio da Manha [via Sport Witness], Wanderers will make a ‘last move’ for Nunes this weekend, walking away from a deal if they fail to make significant progress.

Sporting are aware that it is going to be ‘hard’ to keep hold of the 25-year-old, given his potential preference for a new challenge.

The Verdict: Make-or-break weekend

Nunes is a top-quality midfielder who could be a fantastic signing for Wolves, so it is no surprise to see them trying so hard to get their man. His pass completion rate of 86.2% in the league last season is proof of the technical ability he could bring to Bruno Lage’s side.

If Wanderers fail in their efforts to snap up the midfielder, it is vital that either a similar player comes in this summer or Ruben Neves ends up staying put.

Encouragingly, talk surrounding the Portuguese’s future has gone a little quiet of late and keeping hold of him would arguably be more significant than any new signing, Nunes included, considering he has been a fulcrum of Wolves’ midfield for five years now, making 212 appearances in total.
