Fabrizio Romano has just shared fresh Darwin Nunez transfer update amid Liverpool links

Liverpool appear to be making good progress on the Darwin Nunez front.

Over the past few days, speculation linking the Reds and the Benfica star has intensified.

And it looks as though they’ll be getting one of the best young forwards in world football to replace Mane.

On Thursday, Fabrizio Romano claimed the Reds were in advanced talks over an €80m (£68m) verbal bid.

The Italian also claimed Liverpool had already discussed personal terms with Nunez.

And 90Min claimed the Anfield hierarchy believes they’ve all-but sealed the deal for the Uruguay international.

Apparently, the offer of Champions League football and Premier League title challenges helped sway his decision.

Now, Romano has provided a further update on the Nunez state of play.

He claimed Benfica have now received a formal proposal from Liverpool for the 22-year-old.

Discussions are reportedly ongoing over potential add-ons and installments – the latter is something the Reds want.

While this is still only speculation at the minute, it’s certainly going in the right direction.

“Like a fish in water”

Jose Gomes, Nunez’ former manager at Almeria, reckons the player would be a huge success at Liverpool.

He told Portuguese outlet Record: “Physically very powerful and with tremendous potential.

“He is an athlete of 1.90 metres and with tremendous speed.

“The speed he has allows the team where he plays to reach the opposing goal very easily.

“Not only for the coach (Klopp) himself, who is a motivator and an enthusiast, but also for the style of play he advocates.

“Klopp likes to play looking for spaces in the back of the opposing defensive lines, which means that we can say that Darwin will feel like a fish in water.

“Speed and quick attacks are characteristics that he favours. He will certainly succeed at Liverpool.”
