Chelsea join Liverpool in Matheus Nunes’ £44m transfer battle with the Wolves star set to leave after just one season

CHELSEA have joined Liverpool in the £44m transfer hunt for Wolves star Matheus Nunes.

The 24-year-old became the Molineux club’s record-breaking signing in a £42m deal from Sporting Lisbon last summer.

Despite Wolves’ struggles that season, he was the standout performer.

Brazil-born Portugal international Nunes has attracted a multitude of admirers with his performances.

We reported earlier this month how Liverpool plan a season-ending nosedive for him.

Jurgen Klopp is desperate to reshape his midfield and wants Nunes and Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham.

Now The Telegraph reports that Chelsea are ready to compete with the Anfield side for his signature in the summer.

They claim Nunes is “on the list of possible signings” but Wolves won’t let him go cheaply.

The ace, who made two appearances for Portugal at the World Cup, “is expected to cost at least £55million”.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has been without the injured N’Golo Kante since taking charge and fellow midfielder Jorginho is expected to leave when his contract expires.

Now the center of the park is reportedly “an area earmarked for additions in the next two windows.”

Meanwhile, Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui ruled out the sale of Nunes this month last week.

He said: “We can say that Matheus is our player, he’s a Wolves player and he’s happy to be here.”
