Wolves have rejected a £47m bid from Manchester City for midfielder Matheus Nunes, talkSPORT understands.
City had ramped up their interest in Nunes this week as they look to bolster their midfield options.

A serious injury to Kevin de Bruyne that will see the Belgian miss four months of action has hastened plans to bring in a replacement.
Nunes has been monitored throughout the summer but City have now seen a bid of £47m rejected by the Molineux outfit.
Wolves are under no pressure to sell and believe the offer is well below their valuation of the Portugal international, talkSPORT understands.
The Premier League side do not want to lose Nunes so late in the transfer window and without a replacement in sight.
The former Sporting star has been a key performer for Wolves since signing in 2022 and has been linked with Liverpool throughout the year, as well.
Wolves forked out a club-record fee for Nunes at the time, signing him for £38m.
A bid of £47m would hardly represent the best of deals for Gary O’Neil’s side considering the fee they had already brought him in for.
