Nunez talks progress
Liverpool are said to be in ‘advanced talks’ with Benfica star Darwin Nunez.
According to ESPN, the Reds are in discussions over a club-record deal worth £68.1million up front plus £17million in add-ons.
No deal has been agreed yet, but it’s reported talks are progressing, now advancing towards a deal, and that will be exciting news to Liverpool fans.
Nunez scored 34 goals across all competitions last season.
One player the Reds look set to miss out on is Barcelona youngster Gavi.
According to recent reports, Liverpool have been closely monitoring the situation, ready to move in case Barca cannot tie the 17-year-old down to a new contract.
But according to Sport, the talks are now on track between Gavi and Barca, with the midfielder expected to sign new terms, worth equal to Ronald Araujo’s new deal.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is said to be attracting plenty of interest ahead of the transfer window opening.
It’s expected the former Arsenal midfielder will leave the club this summer, and according to the Liverpool Echo, there is interest from England and abroad.
It’s claimed the Reds will accept a cut-price fee of just £10million this summer, with Oxlade-Chamberlain now surplus to requirements at Anfield.
