Liverpool will reportedly soon open talks to sign Sporting Lisbon superstar and rumoured Chelsea target Matheus Nunes, with the Portuguese youngster also a target for Newcastle United and Manchester City.

According to Correio da Manha, Liverpool will make the 23-year-old midfielder their new transfer priority heading into August as the Reds look set to add to the summer arrivals of Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho, though Jurgen Klopp’s side face some major competition from Premier League rivals to sign Nunes.

Reports earlier in the window have previously suggested that the likes of Chelsea, City, Newcastle and Tottenham are also chasing Nunes, who Sporting value this summer at €50m (£43m) as per Correio da Manha, a hefty sum for any English side looking to sign the Brazilian-born midfielder.

A silky dribbler who acts as a box-to-box midfielder for Sporting, Nunes is the latest creative maestro to emerge from Portugal following the likes of Bernardo Silva, Renato Sanches and new Arsenal signing Fabio Vieira, and his skillset could point as to why Liverpool are interested in the youngster.

Whilst the Reds have signed Carvalho from Fulham this summer with Harvey Elliott set to return to central midfield next season, Nunes is a more experienced option in the centre of the park who can offer Klopp extra dynamism in the centre of the park, particularly if the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita are out injured.

Indeed, with Premier League rivals Chelsea also in the chase to sign Nunes, competition is fierce for the 23-year-old, who looks set to leave Sporting this summer for a big fee, and Liverpool will do well if they end up being the side who end up signing the talented Portuguese international.

Nunes has exploded onto the scene in the past 12 months, and intense Premier League interest in the midfielder is no mere coincidence, with most top sides in England seemingly chasing the talented 23-year-old, which is why Liverpool must do all they can to win the race for the Brazilian-born dynamo.

After all, Liverpool’s strongest central midfield options are all approaching the tail-end of their primes, and finding replacements for them now will be crucial if Klopp is to continue his incredible work at Anfield, which could result in more silverware next season.
