During the forthcoming summer transfer window, Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, who currently plays for the Portuguese club.
If they don’t bring in a new forward to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gunners will be without a striker for the long term.
It has been said that Arsenal is now keeping tabs on Nunez in addition to a slew of other high-profile players who have been linked with a move to the club in the past.
So far this season, the Uruguay international has made a strong impression with his performances in Portugal, scoring 25 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions.
Nunez, who is only 22 years old, will almost certainly continue to improve, making him an excellent choice for Arsenal as they aim to create a team for the future. The Standard also reports that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta might make as many as six new acquisitions ahead of next season.
As previously reported by Football Insider, Nunez has also been extensively linked to Liverpool in recent months, with their report estimating that the youngster would cost approximately £55million.
Despite this, the source also indicated that Nunez would be interested in the potential of a move to Anfield, which is not surprising given his previous interest in the club.
Despite the fact that Arsenal may not be able to give Nunez Champions League play next season, the Reds continue to project as a big force under Jurgen Klopp.
Nunez, on the other hand, may see more action and have a better opportunity to develop if he comes to the Emirates Stadium due to the intense competition up front at Liverpool.
