Manchester United might also be making their official bid soon with Liverpool already taking that steps forward in the race.
Nothing has been agreed upon yet as they will need to wait for more offers before comparing which one is suitable for the club.
It won’t be an easy one as many other clubs are also looking to sign Darwin Nunez who has been one of the hottest strikers in Europe in the past two years.
He is expected to be Sadio Mane’s replacement with the Senegalese set to join Bayern Munich this summer window.
