Chelsea to rival Liverpool for the signature of Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes
According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are set to rival Liverpool for the signature of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Matheus Nunes in the summer.
A few weeks ago, it was reported in The Telegraph that Liverpool are interested in Nunes and will look to strike a deal with Wolves in the coming summer.
Now, the 24-year-old has admirers at Chelsea as well. The club will challenge Liverpool for his signature when he comes to the market after just one season with the west Midlands club.
Along with Nunes, Chelsea have other midfield targets lined up. They are still in the race to sign Moises Caicedo this month, while a summer interest in Declan Rice is there. They are figuring out a way to get Enzo Fernandez from Benfica as well. Everton’s Amadou Onana has been the latest on that list.
As a result of that, Graham Potter had to play youngster Lewis Hall in midfield alongside Jorginho against Liverpool at Anfield. That cannot be served for a long-term purpose.
Nunes is a quality player who carries the ball from midfield expertly, is a good passer, has a good recovery pace in defensive transition and has a goal or two in him. He is an all-action midfield player.
