Aston Villa: Villans fighting Newcastle and others for Darwin Nunez

Aston Villa: Villans fighting Newcastle and others for Darwin Nunez -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa and Newcastle are just two clubs who have made contact with the representatives of Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, 90min report.

The Lowdown: Nunez profiled

Nunez, who Micah Richards recently described as ‘tall’ and ‘strong’, has scored 40 goals in 77 appearances for Benfica after arriving in 2020.

The Uruguay international is primarily a centre-forward who can also play on the left and is now valued by Transfermarkt at a career-high £36m.

He has been in fine form during the current campaign, netting 26 times in 33 games, and it seems as if his next move could be to England.

The Latest: Source shares update

Sources with knowledge to Nunez’s situation have told 90min that the Premier League is seemingly the player’s preferred next destination.

Villa, along with Newcastle, Arsenal and Tottenham have been in contact with the forward’s representatives, while Manchester United and West Ham are also name-checked with an interest.

Villa fans! Do you remember which club James Milner left AVFC for?

The Verdict: Club-record deal?

90min claimed that a figure in the region of £65m would be enough to land Nunez this summer, a fee which could make him Villa’s most expensive signing of all time.

Steven Gerrard is preparing for a first full season on charge at Villa Park, and a new marquee striker could be on his shortlist, especially after Danny Ings was linked with a move to Brighton in recent weeks.

Should Ings depart, then Gerrard would be left with limited options in attack, so a move for Nunez could be one to keep a close eye on over the coming months.
