Julian Ward may have next Liverpool target in his sights after £135m clue
It was no surprise to hear Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui roundly dismissing Liverpool interest in Matheus Nunes on Tuesday.
The Reds are exploring their midfield options, both short and long term, and the club’s recruitment team have retained a long-standing interest in Nunes, who only moved to Wolverhampton in August from Sporting Lisbon.
“We can say that Matheus is our player, he’s a Wolves player and he’s so happy to be here,” said Lopetegui, bluntly, on Tuesday.
It was viewed as a major coup for Wolves when they signed Nunes for around £44m in August. Manchester City and Liverpool were interested and while it was Wolves and their enduring partnership with ‘super agent’ Jorge Mendes who eventually struck the right terms, the Reds have not stopped watching from afar.

Moukoko exit ‘more likely’
The chances of Youssoufa Moukoko leaving Borussia Dortmund are becoming ‘more likely’ as both parties struggle to come to an agreement over a new deal.
Out of contract at the end of the season, Moukoko has been in talks with his current employers over extending terms but finding a compromise is proving to be problematic.
Sky Germany have reported there are still ‘no agreements’ regarding salary and the signing fee. Moukoko is reportedly demanding more than €10m (£8.8m), which Dortmund are not willing to pay.
Liverpool are among the English clubs to be linked with the promising forward, who has scored six goals and provided six assists this season.Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund celebrates scoring.
