Matheus Nunes: Wolves agree club-record £42.2m deal to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder

Posted on

Wolves have agreed a club-record £42.2m deal to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes.

Bruno Lage’s side will pay an initial £38m plus £4.2m in add-ons for the 23-year-old, who is a Portugal international.

Personal terms are yet to be finalised with Nunes but Wolves are hopeful of registering the player by midday on Friday for him to be involved in Saturday’s game at Tottenham.

The potential £42.2m deal would eclipse the £35m Wolves paid Porto two years ago for forward Fabio Silva, who has been loaned to Belgian side Anderlecht this season.
