Manchester City have submitted a second bid for Wolves’ Portuguese midfielder Matheus Nunes. The offer is for €60m (£51.5m) including add-ons.
With personal terms agreed with Nunes days ago, City feel confident that they can complete the deal. An opening bid of €50m plus €5m add-ons was rejected by Wolves last week.
The 23-year-old is the Hammers’ third signing of the summer transfer window. He scored 19 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions for Ajax last season, including goals against Liverpool and Napoli in the Champions League.
“I’ve been dreaming to play in a league like this since I was a kid,” Kudus told the club website. “I’ve been dreaming of this moment and I’m so happy to be here. But it doesn’t stop here, I want to keep going. I try my best to entertain the fans as I think that’s what football is all about.”
Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, are set to bid for Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi before the transfer window closes on Friday. The proposal is expected to be submitted soon, with personal terms understood to have have been agreed already with the 26-year-old Nigeria international. Negotiations will now start between clubs.
