However, the Premier League giants have pulled out of the transfer race for Nunes – leaving the door open for Bruno Lage’s side.

Wolves are interested in Nunes but a switch to Molineux ‘doesn’t appeal’ to the 23-year-old Sporting Lisbon star.

Nunes impressed in last season’s Champions League and shone so bright that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola even singled him out for praise.

The Manchester City manager said: ‘I would say that Matheus Nunes is one of the best .ers in the world today.’

Lisbon view Nunes as a traditional No 8-style box-to-box .er that is the more attacking option in a double midfield pivot.

Sporting have often leaned towards a 3-4-3 or 4-2-3-1 and he has been deployed on the left side of the central two.

He is a terrier of a .er out of possession, reading the game brilliantly for a young .er and is a notorious pest in hassling opponents.

Nunes has also caught the attention through his exquisite range of passing – offering long-range balls across the pitch as well as close and connected passes.

As a result, Chelsea have also registered an interest in signing the Sporting Lisbon midfielder this summer.
