An outline of the financial terms of a contract believed to have been agreed between Benfica star Darwin Nunez and Premier League giants Liverpool was provided on Thursday evening.
The information comes from Portuguese transfer expert Pedro Sepulveda.
Nunez, of course, has been hotly tipped to move to Anfield of late, with recent days in particular having seen speculation surrounding a potential transfer go up a notch.
And now it looks like Anfield’s transfer team have taken a big step forward in their bid to secure a deal for the Uruguay international.
It comes with the Reds reportedly agreeing to Nunez himself, on terms of a five-year contract.
The deal would see the talented hitman take home a sum of around €6m a year, for a total of €30m over the duration of his stay on Merseyside.

For those unaware, Liverpool’s interest in Nunez stems from the fact that the 22-year-old has just emerged from a stellar campaign in Portugal.
In total, in 40 appearances in all competitions, the Benfica standout racked up 32 goals and four assists, including strikes in both legs of Aguias’ Champions League quarter-final with none other than the Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

As Sadio Mane moves closer and closer to the exit door in the red half of Merseyside, Nunez has therefore been identified as something of a replacement for the Senegalese, as those in positions of power at Liverpool continue to work diligently to provide Klopp with all the necessary tools to fight on all fronts for the coming seasons.
