Jurgen’s Klopp chase of the 22-year-old Uruguayan international could be linked to Sadio Mane’s impending Anfield exit.
The former Southampton and Senegalese striker had made his intentions on Liverpool future known.
After a 1-0 loss to Real Madrid in the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League final, Mane took a surprise decision to leave the Anfield club as the summer ends.
Bayer Munich have indicated an interest in the 30-year-old, but the Merseyside club has refused offers from the Bavarians.
Although Mane still has a year remaining in his contract, it is evident that he has made up his mind concerning Liverpool.
The signing of Darwin Nunez by Liverpool is said to be a preparatory step by Liverpool to buffer the team against Mane’s exit.
Meanwhile, fellow African and Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah has committed his future to the Anfield club.
The coming of Darwin Nunez to Liverpool will provide a good attacking pair for the Reds next season.
Darwin Nunez has made 28 appearances for Benfica in the 2021-22 Portuguese league season.
