JULEN LOPETEGUI has ruled out the sale of Matheus Nunes after Liverpool submitted an offer for him.
The Reds are looking for midfield recruits to bolster the spine of the team to help with their top four charge.
They have already signed attacker Cody Gakpo in a £37million deal from PSV.
However, new boss Lopetegui appears to have ruled out the departure of the 24-year-old – who the Midlands side broke their record to sign in a £42.2m deal in the summer.
The ex-Real Madrid and Spain boss told reporters: “We can say that Matheus is our player, he’s Wolves player and he’s so happy to be here.”
Jamie Carragher blasted the club’s recruitment committee for not recruiting a midfielder in the summer, before urging them to splash £200m on new players.
Following the club’s 3-1 loss to Brentford, he said: “Liverpool’s transfer team have been lauded more than any in Premier League, but this is on them.
“They’ve gone from team challenging for four trophies to one that’s struggling for a Champions League place. Liverpool didn’t sign a midfield player in the summer.
“They can’t get in the top four without signing a midfielder. I can’t see it changing before the end of the season.

“They’re a team in transition. They’ve got a lot of young players who have been great for the club, but they need to go big in the summer.
“Liverpool need to spend £200m. They need to sign three midfielders. They need to be at least £40-50m players.
“People keep talking about Bellingham, but for me its as important to get a Wijnaldum type, who alongside Fabinho can protect that back four, stop players running through.”
