Both Everton and Leeds are now prepared to battle Wolves for the services of Matheus Cunha

According to recent reports, Everton and Leeds United have entered the competition to sign attacker Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid. However, Wolves are currently in the lead in the competition to bring the Brazilian to the Premier League.

The two English clubs reportedly have an interest in acquiring Cunha, who is anticipated to part ways with the UEFA Champions League heavyweights during the month of January transfer window. According to Relevo. However, according to the report, the Wolves are currently in the lead in the competition for the forward who is 23 years old.

Since Atletico only paid €26 million (£22 million) for Cunha, according to Relevo, the Spanish club is willing to take a loss on the forward if it means clearing one player off their books for good. Diego Simeone’s side is preparing for a significant overhaul in January, and the club is looking to make some changes.

Everton and Leeds have joined Wolves in the competition to sign Cunha, who was a superstar for Hertha Berlin in the past. This is exactly what Atletico would have wanted to see happen in the market for Cunha. According to TalkSport, Jesse Marsch, an American manager, made an effort to bring the attacker to Elland Road in the summer but was unsuccessful. This makes the interest of Jesse Marsch particularly noteworthy.

When it comes to Everton, the addition of Cunha as an additional forward might be just what Frank Lampard and the Toffees need to turn their season around. On the other hand, considering that Leeds and Wolves are both in the same position, the competition to sign the 23-year-old could be one of the most intense in the Premier League during the month of January.

Indeed, despite the fact that Cunha hasn’t played much for Atletico Madrid this season, the attacker’s potential and quality are indisputable, and the fact that Everton and Leeds are competing with Wolves for Cunha’s signature could turn out to be one of the most significant transactions of the winter market.

Cunha’s signing by Wolves, rather than Everton or Leeds, would be a statement-making move.

The recent hiring of Julen Lopetegui marked a step up in ambition for Wolves, and the Molineux club has the potential to take things even further in January if they are successful in their pursuit of Cunha. Given his skill set and the flair he brings to the pitch, the Brazilian is an asset to any Premier League club he plays for.

Even though they are in the lead for Cunha’s services, Wolves still have to contend with fierce competition for the forward because Everton and Leeds are now also in the running. And if Lopetegui can reach an agreement with Atletico, it would be quite a statement for the Spaniard’s new club as well as a huge morale boost for the entire team. In other words, it would be a win-win situation for everyone involved.
