Premier League trio Wolves, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur sent scouts to watch Porto’s 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon on Thursday with Matheus Nunes and Joao Palhinha in attendance, as reported by A bola.

It’s the end of an era at Molineux. Or at least it looks like it. Fernando Marcal, Willy Boly, Romain Saiss, Adama Traore, Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves could all leave in the summer months.

And finding adequate replacements, not least for Moutinho and Neves, will not be an easy task.

However, Portugal international Nunes – recently dubbed ‘one of the best players in the world’ by none other than Pep Guardiola – would certainly be a step in the right direction. A dynamic, skilful attacking midfielder who helped Sporting win their first Primeira Liga title in two decades last season. the athlete reports that Wolves have identified Nunes as a potential successor to Neves.

According to claims from Portugal, the £33million star will need some convincing before becoming the latest in a growing line of Iberian footballers to trade Lisbon for Wolverhampton.

Wolves travel to Porto during the week – they scouted the Taca de Portugal clash between the on Thursday Dragao and the reigning Portuguese champions – possibly made with Nunes in mind. Clearly, the 2020 Europa League quarter-finalists are not ready to give up the one-off Everton goal just yet.

A Bola claims Spurs and Southampton representatives were also present at the Estadio do Dragao.
