Liverpool reportedly have a first agreement to sign Benfica’s Uruguayan striker, Darwin Nunez.
According to the latest report from Journalist Brahian Kuchman: “There would be a first agreement for Darwin Nunez to be a new English Liverpool player.”
Taking to his Twitter page, Kuchman also stated: “Jurgen Klopp has grown tired of praising the Uruguayan to such an extent that he will end up hiring him.”
If the latest reports are anything to go by, Klopp will most certainly have the 22-year-old goal machine at his disposal next season.
His 25 goals and four assists in 26 games are not the only reason why Klopp has taken an interest in the Uruguayan – with Nunez showing his talent first-hand – scoring in both legs of their Champions League showdown earlier this month.
Of course, Klopp will have subtle confidence about picking up players from Liga Portugal, with his recent coup of former Porto star Luis Diaz demonstrating the amount of value that is scattered all over Portugal.
25-year-old Diaz has transitioned seamlessly into English football, with his five goal returns from nine appearances serving as great evidence of that.
The 54-year-old Liverpool boss Klopp will also be aware of the potential partnership that could blossom between Diaz and Nunez. With the trio of Mane, Salah and Firmino all in the final year of their contracts, Liverpool may be thinking about the future.
Those at Anfield will be urging the club to sign the out-and-out striker who possesses limitless potential at just 22-years-old, though it will not be cheap.
