Wolves picked up an important three points courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday. 

Sasa Kalajdzic’s second-half goal was enough to earn Gary O’Neil’s side a vital victory on the road, much to the frustration of Toffees boss Sean Dyche.

Both sides had started the game without a single point on the board after two matches, although Wolves were arguably unfortunate not to have taken at least one point from their league opener against Manchester United a fortnight ago.

Despite recording their first victory of the season, O’Neil could face a nervy wait in the coming days.

According to Football Insider, Manchester City target Matheus Nunes is very keen on the idea of a move to The Etihad in the final week of the transfer window.

The Portuguese has emerged as a target for the reigning Premier League champions as they look to bolster their midfield options.

Nunes is reportedly keen to join Manchester City this week

West Ham United’s Lucas Paqueta did look likely to join City, before the Brazilian was put under investigation for alleged breaches of betting rules.

The Citizens have therefore turned their attention to Nunes, who joined Wolves from Sporting CP last summer.

Nunes, 25, made 39 appearances across all competitions during his debut season in England, and was praised for his impressive run of form.

The midfielder started Wolves’ opening two matches of the campaign, but missed the visit to Goodison Park on Saturday after being sent off during their 4-1 defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion last week.

It is also claimed that City will now return to Wolves with a £60 million offer for Nunes, who cost his current club around £40 million when he joined last summer.

City are said to be confident of completing a move for Nunes before the transfer window slams shut on September 1, although it remains to be seen whether or not Wolves would be willing to sell the player with such little time remaining to source a replacement.
