Reports from transfer journalist Matteo Moretto suggest that Barcelona scouts have been meticulously monitoring the 24-year-old Portuguese player and have been thoroughly impressed with his performances on the field.

In the current season, Nunes has been displaying his versatility and skill, registering two goals and two assists in 34 appearances for Wolverhampton.
Despite Barcelona’s keen interest in Nunes, the club faces financial constraints due to the wage ceiling imposed by LaLiga. This may pose a significant challenge in their pursuit of the talented midfielder, as they may need to explore innovative solutions to meet the financial demands associated with acquiring Nunes.
