In recent weeks, Matheus Nunes has been linked to Liverpool, and the latest updates are very positive.
Liverpool are preparing to eventually sign the Portuguese international, according to today’s edition of Correio da Manha (news image given below).
The Reds already know the price, as reported by the renouned news source. Wolves offered Sporting CP a deal worth 50 million euros (£42.2 million), but the 23-year-old turned it down.
Spanish international, Thiago Alcantara will be sidelined for a few weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury in the Premier League opener against Fulham.
According to CdM, Nunes is a priority target and Jurgen Klopp is moving in to sign a midfielder.
All Liverpool just needs to do is pay 45 million euros (£42.2m) in cash and 5 million in add-ons.
The Seleccao midfielder has been looking for a move to an English side that would offer him Champions League football and even rejected a 40,000 euro per week contract from Wolves. “Liverpool met the criteria.”
According to Correio do Manha, Nunes is also learning English and has been working closely with Marcus Edwards, a British footballer for Sporting, to finalize his transfer.
Thiago, Naby Keita, and Oxlade-Chamberlain have all been highly injury prone for the Merseysiders, who must move quickly to strengthen their midfield this summer. Keita missed the Fulham game due to an illness.
Matheus Nunes has performed admirably in both the center and attacking midfield positions for the Lions. Does he possess the talent to succeed in the Premier League?
