Wolf boss Nuno has been brought forward by his super agent Jorge Mendes, who has reached out about a possible appointment
But, according to The SunSpurs have now gotten Wolves boss Nuno and his representative, super agent Jorge Mendes, has reached out to discuss a possible appointment.
And in a double deal that would pay off well for Mendes, he also reportedly wants to bring fellow Bruno Lage to the Premier League to replace Nuno at Molineux.
Nuno, who led Wolves back to the Premier League in 2017-18, only recently signed a new contract until 2023.
However, it is claimed that there is ‘a sense that now is the right time to move up to a bigger club’ as he regularly watches a club playing in European football.
The Sun also claims that Nuno was ‘close’ to replace Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta when his future was at stake before Christmas.
It is also believed that Nuno does not intend his next club to be in England and would consider returning to LaLiga, where he led Valencia from 2014 to 2015.
It is unclear whether Wolves would consider Lage as a replacement for Nuno, as he has been unemployed since he was fired by Benfica last year.

Sportsmail revealed exclusively on Tuesday that Spurs had failed in another attempt to lure Rodgers away from Leicester.

Ten Hag’s team conquers the Dutch title this season, Ajax’s second under the 51-year-old, and he can be tempted by a new challenge.
Sources claim that Roberto Martinez would be interested in the vacancy at Tottenham after the European Championship with Belgium, while the work of England boss Gareth Southgate with the national team has not gone unnoticed at Tottenham.
Ralf Rangnick is also on the club’s radar.
Ryan Mason is currently in the preliminary lead, but is not expected to be permanently in the running for the job.
