Gianluca Di Marzio has dropped an update on the future of reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Darwin Nunez.
In recent comments cited by centredevils, the Italian journalist revealed that, with the Benfica centre-forward being heavily linked with a £100m move away from Portugal this summer, he believes the 22-year-old will go on secure a move to the Premier League in the coming months. Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal appear to be the most likely destinations for the striker at present.
Regarding the interest in Nunez, the transfer insider said: “I think Darwin Nunez is going to the Premier League – either Manchester United or to Arsenal or Tottenham. We don’t know where he’s going but for sure the Premier League has to be his next step.”
Considering just how exciting a talent Nunez undoubtedly is, Di Marzio’s claim that Spurs are among the clubs in the running for the 22-year-old’s signature this summer is sure to be news that the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful will love.
Indeed, over his 28 Liga Portugal appearances this season, the £49.5m-rated forward was in breathtaking form, scoring 26 goals, providing four assists and creating 10 big chances, in addition to taking three shots, making 1.1 key passes and completing 1.4 dribbles per game.
The Uruguay international also caught the eye over his 10 outings in the Champions League this term, bagging six goals against Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Ajax and Liverpool, averaging a highly impressive SofaScore match rating of 7.06.
As such, with the 22-year-old clearly one of the most exciting young talents currently playing the game, the news that Antonio Conte’s side are serious contenders for Nunez’s signing is sure to delight Spurs supporters. The prospect of the Benfica forward lining up alongside the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski in north London next season is very much a tantalising one.
