According to reports, Wolverhampton Wanderers look set to complete a club record transfer to sign Matheus Nunes, much earlier than Liverpool had planned. A former Liverpool player called for the club to "get in the middle" of Wolves' bid to sign the Sporting midfielder.

The Brazil-born Portugal international is reportedly close to completing a deal with the English side before passing his medical. Premier League rivals Liverpool and West Ham United have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old, but Wolves appear to have the upper hand.

Is there a crisis at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp's midfield is depleted at the moment, with Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara all injured. Now former Reds defender Jose Enrique has called on the club to step in at the last minute before it is too late.

"Come on LFC, get in the middle of this deal and get it done," Enrique posted on Wednesday via Twitter Enrique. The former Newcastle United player also responded to his followers and sent another message to Liverpool "they are a top club and should be able to get this player..."

"Yes mate, top player, and for that price, I think it makes sense for us. And he has played most of the games in the last two seasons, this is even more important for us that he is most of the time available to play," Enrique said in response to another supporter who asked him about Nunes.

It is not certain that Klopp and Co. will heed his request. The Reds boss has previously insisted that they do not need to add another midfielder to their squad, although he has not yet completely closed the door, which injuries and absences at the club seem likely to force him to take up any of the offers they have in mind.
