Newcastle United: Ryan Taylor reveals Darwin Nunez ‘latest’

Newcastle United: Ryan Taylor reveals Darwin Nunez ‘latest’ -Newcastle United News

The Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor has now revealed the ‘latest’ on Newcastle United’s ‘interest’ in signing Darwin Nunez in the summer.

The Lowdown: On the list

Nunez is just one of a number of high-profile strikers that are reportedly on the St. James’ Park faithful’s shortlist for the summer.

It is no surprise given the kind of season that he is having, as his goal in the UEFA Champions League for Benfica against Liverpool in midweek was his 28th in total over all competitions so far.

Even some Reds fans were left blown away by his performance, as Anfield Index podcaster Hari Sethi went as far as to claim that he is an ‘absolute beast’ who is ‘rapid quick’ and ‘really strong’.

Indeed, the North East club are sure to face some stiff competition for his signature.

The Latest: Nunez update

Taking to Twitter, Taylor has revealed that both Arsenal and Manchester United have consulted Benfica over terms for a potential deal, while West Ham United and Brighton and Hove Albion have seen bids rejected for Nunez, and even Championship Sheffield United have courted him in the past:

“Latest on Darwin Nunez as Arsenal & Man United consult Benfica over terms of deal. Courted by Sheffield United, Brighton & West Ham saw bids rejected. Asking price now £67m with agent Edgardo Lasalvia determined to beat Jorge Mendes to any sale.”

Continuing, Taylor also revealed that Nunez could potentially be out of reach for the Tynesiders, unless they pay a huge, club-record fee:

“There is still firm interest from West Ham & Newcastle, too. However, beginning to sense that Nunez could now be out of reach for both – particularly without UCL football – unless they’re prepared to pay huge, club-record £. Atletico leading race.”

Should Newcastle sign Nunez?

No

The Verdict: Pay the money

As much as Nunez is going to cost, the Magpies simply have to pay the money if they want to move to the next level.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

His scoring record speaks for itself, and at just 22 years of age, the Uruguay international has the potential to become one of the best in the world – in fact his former manager Jorge Jesus has even tipped him to become just that.

With the calibre of clubs also in for him, it will be difficult already to attract Nunez without European football to offer, and so the Toon must get him to believe in the long-term project, and make him the face of it.
