Liverpool ‘Appreciate’ Nunes for Long Time
Jurgen Klopp’s side has struggled in the centre of the park this season, with a lot of his midfielders suffering injury issues. This is why they have drawn a transfer list of potential midfielder signings in the summer. Romano insists that Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham remains their top-most priority option at the end of the season, but they are also keeping alternatives in mind knowing the potential battle they can face for the Englishman.

Nunes is a player that Liverpool has always appreciated, even when he played for Sporting Lisbon last year. But he remains one of the midfielders they really like and could make a move for in the summer. They appreciate his skill set and his ability to energize the midfield line with his exciting playing style as well as add more attacking threats to his side.

Liverpool Unlikely to Push for Nunes in January
The Reds have already made a signing in the January transfer window in the form of left-winger Cody Gakpo, who has joined them to improve their frontline for the second half of the season. Romano insists that despite their interest in Nunes, they will not make a move for him in the January transfer window.
That could be because he only joined Wolves in August 2022 and the struggling Premier League side will not want to sell him so soon, especially as they’re stuck in a relegation battle this season. The Brazilian midfielder was called a ‘machine’ by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola after his side’s 3-0 win over Wolves earlier this season.

He’s only had one assist in 14 appearances for Wolves, with his encouraging performances winning over Klopp’s side and if he can continue this for a long time, then the 24-year-old could attract major interest from the Reds next summer.
