Rumoured midfield target Matheus Nunes appears to be less likely to complete a move to Anfield this summer, recent reports have suggested.

The 24-year-old is said to have been on Liverpool’s radar for a long time, but the Telegraph have reported that Liverpool are exploring “other more expensive targets” for the midfield this summer.

It is expected that Wolves will command a fee in excess of £50 million in the transfer window, and the Reds look to have turned their attention to other options.

Liverpool are still thought to be interested in moves for Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount and Moises Caicedo as they look to bolster their midfield for next season.
