Liverpool interested in Nunes but more likely to move to summer
Liverpool maintains interest in the wolf midfielder Matheus Nunes – but Sky Sports News have been told they are more likely to pursue a deal in the summer than in January.
The Red Devils want to strengthen their midfield but will make sure they sign the right player, even if that means waiting until the end of the season.

There have been reports that Liverpool will try to sign him for £44m but Sky Sports News have been told the fee is unrealistic, with Wolves valuing him at more than £50m.

Klopp: No one has come to me and asked to leave the club
New Liverpool forward Cody Gakpo could be in the FA Cup this weekend after being left out of the squad for Monday night’s loss to Brentford.
Jurgen Klopp has not ruled out signing more while the market is open but that looks unlikely for now and the manager admits they have to raise some cash before more deals can be done.
Klopp said: “I’ve been here for seven years and every window is the same; We talk about these things as if money played no part.
“Never like this. We sign a great player like Cody Gakpo and then you read about the next player.
“We can’t play like Monopoly. Of course we can’t spend and never can.
“It’s an important part of my philosophy, working with faith and trust with the players we have and not constantly telling them we need another player to replace us.
“Obviously you need real quality in all positions and the two teams are on the same level for you to rotate but people were surprised when we said we couldn’t start splashing.
“If there’s something we can do and that means the right player and the financial situation, we’ll do it.”
Asked if any of his extra players could be offloaded, he added: “It’s a different situation, I don’t know.
“Nobody has come to me and asked to leave the club, if that’s the case then I would listen but no one has come yet.”
Klopp: Gakpo arrival ‘doesn’t affect Firmino’ future
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool are currently in talks with Roberto Firmino about his future – but admitted signing Cody Gakpo “didn’t influence” the club’s decision, according to Mirror.
The Reds announced the Dutch international’s arrival on Wednesday after they usurped Manchester United’s pursuit of the 23-year-old.

Liverpool currently have six recognized strikers in the team, with Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Gakpo and Firmino making up their forward division.
When asked about Firmino’s future and whether Gakpo’s arrival would have any effect, Klopp said: “No. We have talked to Bobby. In my opinion, I definitely want him to stay. That has no impact.”
“If it affects Bobby, then you have to ask him.”
Gakpo joins Liverpool
Liverpool complete the signing of the Dutch striker Cody gakpo from PSV.
The Red Devils have paid between £35m and £45m for the striker, who has scored three goals in five appearances at the World Cup in Qatar.
Gakpo, who had a medical at Merseyside on Wednesday afternoon, is said to have contracted until 2028.

“I don’t like to talk about money when you talk about a player like him. Everyone can see how special he is,” the Liverpool manager said.
“If you mention to someone who knows nothing about football, or who knows about football and hasn’t watched it in a while (and asks), ‘How old do you think Jude Bellingham is?’, I don’t think. someone will even be close to his age.
“They’ll say 28 or 29 because he’s so mature. He played an exceptional World Cup. Absolutely phenomenal.”
