Matheus Cunha: Wolves close to signing of Atletico Madrid forward

Wolves are closing in on the loan signing of Atletico Madrid’s Brazil forward Matheus Cunha.

The Premier League club, who have been talking to Cunha for several weeks, have reached a verbal agreement.

A loan deal for the 23-year-old would include an obligation to buy at the end of the season for a fee that could rise to 40m euros (£35m).

It is understood Atletico were open to letting Cunha leave after Champions League group-stage elimination.

The forward has eight caps for Brazil but has only played once for Atletico in the league this season.

New manager Julen Lopetegui wanted striking reinforcements for a squad that has only scored eight times in the Premier League this season.

Speaking after Wolves’ Carabao Cup fourth-round win over Gillingham, Lopetegui said: “I can’t confirm anything. We are interested in him [Cunha] and it’s possible you know more than me.

“I don’t have the updates, the official news, so I have to be professional. Of course he is a player that we want but we don’t have updates. When I have updates I am going to talk about him.”
