As a member of Portugal national football team, Nunes won 11 caps and he scored one goal.

Matheus Nunes is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. The former Sporting CP man has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
World Football Rumours
According to the report, “Liverpool are assessing their chances of signing Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Matheus Nunes. The Reds are desperate to add a quality midfielder to manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad. However, their attempts to sign Enzo Fernandez from Benfica appear to have hit an impasse. Per The Telegraph, Liverpool may now be turning their attention to Nunes of Wolves instead. Despite the Portuguese not hitting the ground running at Wolves, the Reds view him as a huge talent who can be a long term part of their squad. The two clubs did manage to negotiate a big money deal for Diogo Jota in 2020.”
The 24-year-old is currently under contract until 2027. In that regard, Wolverhampton are not in a position where they have to sell. But if they choose to, they are also in a very strong position to set a hefty price tag.
Liverpool will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Wolverhampton to the negotiating table. The Reds have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Good signing for Liverpool?
If Liverpool and Klopp are seriously considering a midfielder, Nunes could also prove to be a smart option.
The 24-year-old has all the skillset required to be a success story at Liverpool. Therefore, it makes sense for Jürgen Klopp to step up his attempts to bring the Portugal midfielder to Premier League giants.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Liverpool.
How strong that interest is and whether Liverpool will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
