£50.6M could be Liverpool’s secret transfer target – Reports states contact has been made

Liverpool have made contact with Sporting Lisbon with the view to sign Matheus Nunes.

The midfielder has a £50.6M release clause in his contract but a report from Portugal states Sporting will not open negotiations for a penny below the £33.7M mark.

As the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez and Fabio Vieira have shown, the Portuguese Primeira Liga is producing high-quality players in abundance.

Matheus Nunes might be Liverpool’s secret transfer target

With Journal de Noticias (JN) reporting that Liverpool have made contact with Sporting Lisbon, Nunes could be Jurgen Klopp’s ‘secret’ transfer target.

Before Liverpool were thrashed by Man Utd in their first pre-season friendly of the summer, Klopp let slip that sporting director Julian Ward is working on “some stuff”.

While Liverpool’s potential transfer targets is private, it’s no secret that Klopp could do with adding a new midfielder to his ranks.

James Milner (36) and Jordan Henderson (32) show the signs of their age when they play while Thiago is injury prone despite his unbelievable class.

Fabinho doesn’t have any high quality for his place at the base of Liverpool’s midfield.

Naby Keita is incredibly talented but only time will tell if his injury struggles are behind him. The Guinean’s contract expires at the end of the season.

So too does Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s with the Englishman not meeting the standard required to start for the Reds in the last year.
