According to new reports, rumoured Liverpool transfer target Matheus Nunes will stay in Portugal with his current club next season after talks with manager Ruben Amorim. The Reds have been linked with the midfielder for some time, but a number of other clubs have been linked with him as well. Even this week, reports suggested that a move could be completed during this time frame. However, the Portuguese newspaper O Jogo has now highlighted the manager’s reluctance to part ways with Nunes, claiming that he has ‘convinced’ the player to stay for at least another season. According to the report, it would take at least £51 million to persuade Sporting to sanction a move, a sum that would likely deter most potential suitors. EXCLUSIVE: Darwin Nunez is ready for a “big step” at Liverpool, as evidenced by three players: Liverpool made a big’statement’ after a crucial win. Jurgen Klopp’s replacement Liverpool have made a number of signings this summer, including Calvin Ramsay, Fabio Carvalho, and Darwin Nunez, who could set a new club record. It has been widely reported in recent weeks that the club has no plans to add to their squad this summer, instead focusing on next year. In an interview with Sky Sports, Jurgen Klopp reiterated this stance, insisting that they will only enter the transfer market again this window if absolutely necessary. He stated: “We’re done if no one wants to leave. Or if a serious injury occurs…I hope not. However, Liverpool fans can shift their attention elsewhere.” Nunes is currently under contract at Sporting until at least 2026, implying that the Portuguese club is under no obligation to sell. He only signed an extension in October of last year, but he is an important member of the squad under manager Amorim. In the long run, however, it is clear that Liverpool will look to strengthen their midfield. Inside Anfield, one name in particular has a lot of fans: Jude Bellingham.
