Nunez is one of the most talented attackers in Europe right now. He enjoyed a terrific 2021-22 season at the Estadio da Luz, scoring 26 goals in 28 Liga Bwin appearances.
The Uruguay international won the Primeira Liga’s Golden Shoe last term and was also named the CNID Footballer of the Year. Nunez played a key role in the Eagles’ run to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, scoring six goals in 10 appearances.
The 22-year-old striker will play a massive role of spearheading the Reds’ attack during the 2022-23 season.
Liverpool news: Didi Harmann suggested Darwin Nunez to become a team player
Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Harmann has urged the Reds’ new forward Darwin Nunez to put the team’s interest first rather than focus on individual accomplishments.
Speaking to the media, he said: “Obviously they want to score goals and they want the headlines but they put their own interests to the back to play for the team, which is not always the case.
In Nunez now we’ve got to wait to see how the dynamics of the team changes, but so far I have to say, it looks pretty good.”
The Reds signed the Portugal international as a replacement for Sadio Mane, who left to join Bayern Munich. Nunez has instantly hit the ground running, scoring four goals in a friendly game against RB Leipzig last week. He will look to continue his fine goalscoring form when the Premier League commences on August 6.
Meanwhile, Didi Hamann spent seven seasons with the Reds between 1999 and 2006. He played 191 league games during his time with the club, scoring eight goals.
The former German international helped the Reds win nine major trophies, including one UEFA Champions League title.
Juventus linked with Roberto Firmino
According to the Daily Mail, Juventus are preparing to make a bid for Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino. The Serie A club is willing to offer £19.5 to the PL club to secure the services of Firmino.
Nunez’s arrival will significantly reduce Firmino’s game time at Anfield next season. The 31-year-old attacker is currently in the final year of his contract with the club. Liverpool could look to cash in for him this summer as opposed to letting him leave for free next season.
