Wolves have agreed a loan deal for Atletico Madrid striker Matheus Cunha with an obligation to buy the player for 34 million euros. This is a huge step for Wolves in their bid to strengthen the squad, especially considering that the club has been on the verge of losing both Emmanuel Adebayor and Ryan Babel.
Atletico Madrid striker Matheus Cunha
The Brazilian striker, Matheus Cunha, has signed a loan deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers. He is expected to play for the club until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old striker has been struggling to make an impact with Atletico Madrid this season. He has started just twice, and has yet to score. He has only made seven goals in 54 games for the Spanish club. He has been overlooked for the Brazil World Cup squad.
Wolves and Atletico have agreed a PS34m loan deal, which includes an obligation to buy the player. If the deal is completed, he could feature against Aston Villa on January 4.
The Portuguese head coach Julien Lopetegui has spoken openly about signing the former RB Leipzig forward. He said: “He is very close to joining us.”
Cunha has only scored seven goals in his career. He has also provided six assists.
Atletico have been desperate to offload him. A number of clubs are interested in him. Aston Villa and Everton are among those to be linked with him.
Aston Villa target Matheus Cunha
Wolves are edging closer to a deal to sign Atletico Madrid’s Matheus Cunha. The Brazilian is expected to join on a loan deal with a 34 million obligation to buy. The deal is a significant one for Wolves as they are currently bottom of the Premier League.
After failing to make the Brazil World Cup squad, Cunha has been linked with a number of top flight English clubs, including Everton, Aston Villa, and Arsenal. In addition, Leeds United also had a number of talks with the forward.
The deal is believed to have been close for a while. Atletico Madrid are now ready to sell the Brazilian. However, Wolves are still in the lead for the deal. Several other clubs have also approached Atletico with offers.
As well as being a goal-scorer, Cunha is a versatile player. He has played on the wing and as an attacking midfielder. He is good at linking play and timing runs.

Moise Kean’s future at Wolves
Everton have a new attacking threat in the shape of Italian striker Moise Kean. But he has struggled to make an impact in his first season at Goodison Park. The 22-year-old has scored just five goals in 24 matches so far.
He may be happy to return to his homeland, but it’s also possible he is looking for a way out. That could mean a move to a newly promoted club. It’s unclear whether the Italian would be willing to sign for a lower division team. However, it’s worth keeping an eye on.
Aside from the obvious transfer, Everton are also reportedly interested in Colombian winger Luis Dias from Porto. But the Toffees have no funds to spend without breaking the rules of the Premier League’s Profit & Sustainability system.
It’s unclear if Everton will use their cash to invest in another player or if they will just hold onto the money they have. If they decide to invest, they could consider signing James Rodriguez, although he hasn’t appeared in the Premier League since he joined the MLS.
Arsenal interest in Cunha
In the January transfer window, Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Matheus Cunha’s situation. As part of their chase for a new attacker, they have been mooted to be interested in signing the Atletico Madrid striker.
Cunha signed a contract with Atletico in the summer of 2021, but he hasn’t been able to make a significant impact at the club. He has only started 11 matches for the side this season, and has yet to score a goal in La Liga. His lack of game time has reportedly upset the Brazilian, and his future is uncertain.
Atletico Madrid are reportedly ready to let him leave the club in January. The striker has been linked with a host of English clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United and Aston Villa. He has a release clause of PS65 million. He has yet to decide where he would like to go next, but he is expected to make a move to the Premier League.
