Liverpool are reportedly plotting to secure a transfer deal for Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes.
The Merseyside club were linked with the midfielder during the previous summer transfer window before he eventually made his move to Molineux from Sporting in a deal worth up to £42.2m.
Since joining the Midlands club, the 24-year-old has made 16 appearances for the Old Gold across the Premier League and the Carabao Cup.
Despite only being a Wolves player for a few months, Nunes, who was hailed as having a ‘gift‘, has once again found himself on Liverpool’s radar.
According to a recent report from The Telegraph, the Reds are exploring the possibility of securing a deal for the Wolves midfielder that would potentially see him make a move to Anfield at the end of the season.
Across his 14 Premier League games, Nunes has made the fourth-most successful tackles (16) at Wolves as well as the joint-fourth-highest number of key passes (12).
This highlights how useful the Brazil-born Portugal international has been for his new side in and out of possession.
Bearing in mind how Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher recently claimed that the Reds need to bring in three new midfielders, Nunes could be a suitable option for them, and Nunes will perhaps be licking his lips at the prospect of being tasked with freshening up the Liverpool engine room.
Should Liverpool sign Matheus Nunes?
With Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola previously labelling the midfielder as “one of the best players in the world” back in February, the former Sporting star now has the experience of playing in the Premier League in the same way that Diogo Jota had before he swapped the Old Gold for Liverpool.
Moving forward, if the Reds have seen enough from Nunes in the past few months to feel that he would be a suitable signing for them in the summer, working on a deal this month could be a smart option for the Merseyside club.
If this were to happen and the midfielder was able to use the second half of the season to improve his game and help keep Wolves away from the relegation zone, this should help him get ready to take the step up to Liverpool in the summer.

The Wolves have said they have no intention of selling Nunes, so livarpool can jog on, the second word is OFF.
