Wolves and Brighton have joined a number of top European clubs in the hunt for RB Leipzig's Brazilian striker Matheus Cunha.

The 20-year-old, who can also play as a winger, is understood to be available on a permanent basis this month for around £17m.

So far he has made 10 Bundesliga appearances this season and two in the Champions League.

Cunha scored an outrageous solo effort against Bayer Leverkusen last season and was shortlisted for the 2019 FIFA Puskas award which is given to the scorer of the best goal of the season.

Elsewhere, Patrick Cutrone has returned to training with Wolves after talks about the striker's move to Fiorentina stalled, while Nuno Espirito Santo is close to completing the signing of Dutch teenager Nigel Lonwijk from PSV for around £180,000.

Brighton, meanwhile, are among a trio of Premier League clubs interested in signing Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker-Peters on loan in January, along with Crystal Palace and Southampton.
