According to Transfer Specialist Fabrizio Romano City view Nunes as their priority target. Given that De Bruyne is out of action, the Blues see the need to reinforce their midfield options.
Another player linked is Crystal Palace youngster, Eze. Although, a deal would be more complicated to navigate. Both Dom Smith and Nizaar Kinsella for the Standard report that Palace would expect an offer of no less than 70m for their youngster.
Regardless, the Blues will concentrate on securing the signature of Nunes and will continue to negotiate a deal. Although they will not enter into a battle of valuations.
Development: Wolves have rejected a £47m bid from Manchester City for Matheus Nunes.
