Benwin’s Darwin Nunez is open to the idea of joining Liverpool amid rumors of the Reds’ interest in his services, according to Football Insider.
The Uruguayan striker started at Penarol in his home country, which he left to join Foreign Ministry Almeria in 2019 for a reported fee of € 13 million. A year later, the Spanish club sold him to Benfica for € 24 million.
The 22-year-old has had a fantastic 2021-22 season with the Portuguese club, where he has scored 23 goals and produced two assists in 29 matches in all tournaments so far. This summer, his contract will still have three years left to run, which of course means he is not coming cheap.
As for Liverpool, they are currently dealing with the need to restructure their attacking line. They have done pretty well over the last 18 months with the signings of Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, but their proven front three by Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all go into the final year of their end-of-season contracts. . On top of that, Salah and Mane turn 30 this year, while Firmino already has last October.
Currently, talks with Salah about a new deal represent the club’s top priority, according to all relevant sources.
