Liverpool are among a number of elite European clubs interested in signing Benfica striker Darwin Nunez this summer, according to a fresh transfer report.
The Lowdown: Nunez linked with Liverpool
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a wonderful season for the Portuguese giants, scoring 26 goals and registering four assists in just 28 Primeira Liga appearances.
A fresh transfer report suggests that the youngster could indeed be a Reds player next season.
The Latest: Liverpool ‘interested’ in Nunez
According to Sport Witness, a source has informed them that Liverpool are one of ‘several interested’ clubs when it comes to Nunez.
Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also mentioned in the report, with the possibility of a summer bidding war for the highly-rated striker.
The Verdict: Reds’ next attacking superstar?
Nunez certainly looks like a player with incredible potential – Diego Forlan has called his compatriot ‘spectacular’ – so Liverpool’s interest in him is exciting as Jurgen Klopp looks to build his next great attack.
The Uruguay international outlined his brilliance against the Reds twice in 2021/22, scoring home and away against Klopp’s side in the Champions League, and he looked a lively presence throughout that quarter-final tie in April.
At 22, there is still plenty of time for Nunez to mature into an even more formidable striker, especially if he is playing under Klopp and alongside world-class forwards like Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz.
In other news, Liverpool are reportedly still in the hunt to sign one player. Find out who it is here.
