Matheus Nunes of Sporting CP has frequently been mentioned in relation to Liverpool’s need to strengthen their midfield, with Jurgen Klopp needing more depth.
According to a report from Correio da Manha yesterday, Sporting coach Amorim worries that the 23-year-old midfielder, who makes about £71,000 per month (1 million euros annually), will sign with the Reds this summer.
A recent report today from Jornal de Noticias (news image provided below), claims that the Lions won’t make any signings this summer unless there are departures.
Players like Goncalo Inacio and Matheus Nunes, according to the reputable Portuguese news source, are wanted by many top European clubs.
JN claims Liverpool and Wolves are interested in the central midfielder, but Sporting are yet receive an offer good enough to part with their prized asset.
What kind of offer would be tempting enough? The Primeira Liga team are reportedly demanding a fixed price of 45 million euros plus add-ons of 5 million euros to sell the midfielder.
An offer of 40–45 million euros should be enough to close the deal for Inacio as well.
In the 2020–21 season, Nunes was part of Amorim’s team that won the Liga Nos championship. He and the team also won the Portuguese League Cup and Portuguese Super Cup last season.
The Seleccao star, while mainly playing in the central midfield, finished with 4 goals and 5 assists in all competitions.
