Liverpool will have plenty of time to plan for their next Premier League match, with The Reds not in action until the first weekend of April. 

On Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp’s side exited the Champions League following a 1-0 defeat against Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.

That means that Liverpool will now have to finish in the top four of the Premier League to qualify for next season’s Champions League, although they currently sit six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

The Merseyside outfit have endured a difficult season so far, and Klopp’s squad is likely to look quite different by the start of next term.

Several players have been linked with moves away from Anfield, but it now appears that one of the club’s targets could be available much cheaper than first thought.

As per Football Insider, Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes could be available for a cut-price if the Midlands side are relegated at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has emerged as a target for Liverpool as they look to bolster their midfield, but it had initially been suggested that he would cost upwards of £50 million.

Nunes could be available for a reduced fee if Wolves are relegated this season

The report claims, though, that if they were to be relegated Wolves would have to drop their asking price for the midfielder to a fee between £20-£30 million.

Nunes only joined Wolves last summer, signing from Sporting Lisbon for a fee in the region of £42 million.

This season, he has impressed for his new side, making 29 appearances across all competitions.

At present, Wolves sit just three points above the relegation zone despite occupying 13th place in the table.

Liverpool were reportedly interested in the player last summer, before Wolves eventually landed the impressive midfielder.

The Portugal international is contracted to Wolves until 2027, but it appears extremely unlikely that he would stay put at Molineux if the club were to drop out of the top flight.
