  • Wolves are hoping to have Matheus Nunes ready for their trip to Spurs 
  • Bruno Lage’s side have agreed a £38million deal for the Portugal midfielder
  • The 23-year-old is expected to be officially announced in the coming days 

Wolves hope to register club record signing Matheus Nunes in time for their away trip to Spurs on Saturday.

The midfielder rejected a move to West Ham last week as he has been holding out for a Champions League club but is being persuaded by Bruno Lage to join Wolves this summer.

Liverpool and Manchester City were also monitoring Nunes, who has made a major impact for Sporting, but it’s Lage’s side who look to land the 23-year-old.

The Premier League side have agreed a club record £38m fee for the Sporting Lisbon midfielder. Wolves will pay a further £4.2m in add-ons.

That eclipses the £35m Wolves paid Porto for Fabio Silva – now on loan at Anderlecht – in 2020. 

The Brazil-born Nunes turned down an opportunity to play for his homeland and last year made his debut for Portugal. He has won eight caps and scored one goal for the country. 

The midfielder contributed three goals and two assists in the league from 33 appearances in the Portuguese top flight last year, before attracting interest this summer.

Wolves have already completed deals for Portugal forward Goncalo Guedes, who joined from Valencia, and Republic of Ireland defender Nathan Collins, who signed from Burnley.

Last week, Lage indicated he wanted to sign ‘three or four more players’ before the end of the current transfer window.

‘The words are patience and trust,’ he said on Friday. ‘Patience because we still have 20 days to the end of the transfer window.

‘And trust in our work. Judge the work we are doing at the beginning of this season at the end of this transfer window.’
