Liverpool transfers could be moving very swiftly in the next week or two – especially in attack. All the latest updates are in our roundup today.
Darwin Nunez signing imminent?!
This one moved swiftly – we’ve gone, in the space of a day or three, to rivalling Man United but not willing to break the bank, to almost having the deal tied up.
That’s for Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, with local reports saying we’d be prepared to go up to £85m and break our transfer record for him – which is quite different to not buying him if a bidding war broke out!
It’s notable that now overseas journalists have started claiming it’s all but done too, with personal terms already having an “agreement” and the Reds near to sealing a deal with the selling club too.
Around €80m fixed and €20m in add-ons appears to be the going rate according to Portuguese media! Stay tuned to this one – the fans are expecting a tactical shift if he joins.
