Manchester City and Liverpool are reportedly vying to sign Matthews Nunes from Wolves. The midfielder moved to Molineux in the summer after three-and-a-half years at Sporting Lisbon, and has since impressed with his new employer in the Premier League.

Wolves rescued Nunes from Portugal in mid-August for a club-record £42m. The 24-year-old has become a fan favourite following  his arrival. He's impressed in seven appearances for the Molineux club.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Nunes had delayed a move to Wolves in hopes that Liverpool will take action following a personal agreement with him. Manager Jurgen Klopp turned down an offer on the occasion but now wants to refresh his ageing midfield.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola called Nunes "one of the best players in the world" as the Citizens faced Sporting in last season's Champions League.

Now, it has been gathered that the Spaniard is looking at signing the Portuguese with no thought for how long the player has spent in his new club and to the detriment of Liverpool.
