Good news as two midfielder would love Liverpool transfer as Jürgen Klopp can recreate elite trio



Liverpool are heavily linked with a $66m midfield purchase this summer and look set to allow Jürgen Klopp to repeat a successful trick by Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool take on Wolves for the fourth time in two months on Wednesday night.

The sides met twice in the third round of the FA Cup in January, with Liverpool triumphing in the replay after drawing in the first game, before the Reds suffered a 3-0 Premier League defeat at Molineux at beginning of February.

They will now meet for the reverse match at Anfield, a match initially scheduled for mid-September but postponed following the Queen’s death.

So Liverpool will enjoy the rare luxury of getting up close to a potential fourth-time transfer target in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes. Goal’s Neil Jones reiterated last week that the Reds are keen on Nunes as they look to revamp their midfield, alongside Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Chelsea’s Mason Mount.

According to The Telegraph, Wolves are expected to demand at least $66m (£55m/€62m) for the Portuguese, 12 months after signing a $53m (£44m/€50m) deal.

In recent games, Nunes has taken on a new role in Julen Lopetegui’s side, operating on the left wing rather than centrally.

He started in left midfield in a 4-4-2 formation in a 3-0 win over Liverpool before moving to the left wing in a three behind Matheus Cunha for the trip to Southampton.

The 24-year-old was involved in his side’s goal in the 1-1 draw. Lui picked up the ball at half-time before finding Raúl Jiménez at the back post, after which the Mexican cleared the goal from goalscorer Pablo Sarabia. No Wolves player has recorded more shots (three), key passes (two), passes into the box (three) and successful crosses (two) than Nunes, and only centre-back Craig Dawson has done so. more assists in the final third.

Significantly, he was also a good candidate for left-back Hugo Bueno and helped the Spaniard win the player of the match award.

It is tempting to wonder on this basis whether he can repeat a previously successful momentum at Liverpool.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah formed a ‘triangle’ down the right flank that, at best, brought down many opponents

With an almost telepathic connection at the heart of their rotations, the trio pulled defenses apart.

This season, however, it hasn’t worked out the same way. Alexander-Arnold was not at his best offensively, Jordan Henderson overshot his best point and Mohamed Salah often found himself supported on the periphery rather than appropriately.

With Henderson’s place in the starting XI uncertain, Klopp needs a new weapon.

And if Nunes was in charge eighth in Klopp’s 4-3-3 on the left, perhaps the manager could reinvent the trick at the other end, this time alongside Andy Robertson and Luis Díaz.

Nunes would have a central launch position but would be allowed to drift to wide areas and bond with the pair.

If he can excel in that role at Wolves in the future – but hopefully not on Wednesday, for Liverpool’s sake – he will offer Klopp another reason to sign him and an exciting new plan for next season.
