Liverpool: James Pearce thrilled by Darwin Nunez transfer news -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

The Athletic journalist James Pearce says Darwin Nunez could be a ‘huge’ signing for Liverpool ahead of his possible move to the Premier League.

The Lowdown: Nunez agrees personal terms

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a deal with the Lisbon-based outfit back in 2020, and even though his contract at the Estadio da Luz isn’t set to expire for another three years, the striker is now poised to make the switch to Anfield after recent developments.

On Wednesday evening, it was reported by Italian transfer specialist Gianluigi Longari that the Uruguayan had agreed personal terms on a move to Merseyside, with press in Portugal saying Liverpool are the player’s first choice due to the presence of Champions League football, with Manchester United also trying to swoop in.

The Latest: Pearce’s delight

In a post on his personal Twitter account, Pearce reacted to the news that Nunez is in Julian Ward’s crosshairs as he shared his article on the ongoing saga.

“A lively start to Julian Ward’s reign as LFC sporting director,” he said.

“Liverpool are increasingly likely to win the race for Darwin Nunez. Such an exciting player. Huge talent.”

The Verdict: A transfer priority

As a result of both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane facing an uncertain future at Liverpool, not to mention the fact that the club have now confirmed that Divock Origi will be leaving Anfield, the attacking areas are surely a transfer priority for Jurgen Klopp during the upcoming window.

The 11-cap international netted 34 times across all competitions for Benfica this season, and even scored in both legs of the Champions League quarter-final defeat against the Reds back in April.

Would Nunez be a good signing for Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

After missing out on the signature of Kylian Mbappe earlier this year, the Reds clearly haven’t given up in their pursuit of adding some fresh young quality in the final third, and Nunez now looks like he’ll be the new man to lead the line on Merseyside in years to come.

In other news… one of Liverpool’s transfer targets is now set to undergo a medical after the club recently had a bid accepted.
