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
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.
The Verdict: Club-record deal?
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.
