SHOCKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Darwin Nunez future in doubts as Reds target €130m striker. Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Napoli superstar Victor Osimhen amid Darwin Nunez’s recent struggles in front of goal. According to reports Liverpool incoming coach has told the the club that he needs a striker and his preferred option will be Napoli striker Victor Osimhen. Nunez faces uncertain Liverpool future as Reds join race for €130m Chelsea target.


Liverpool are said to have entered the competition to secure the signature of Napoli’s standout player Victor Osimhen, as Darwin Nunez, their current forward, struggles to find the back of the net. Despite netting only once in his last 10 appearances, Nunez, a Uruguayan international aged 24, had been a prolific scorer with 18 goals across all competitions this season. However, his recent drought comes at a crucial juncture, with Liverpool faltering in the title race due to the lack of form from their attacking players. With speculations rife about Feyenoord’s Arne Slot potentially taking over from Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool are eyeing reinforcements, especially in defense and midfield, despite making significant signings in those areas last summer.

Reports from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport suggest that Liverpool are now targeting Osimhen, who is expected to depart Napoli this summer. While Chelsea leads the race for his signature, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested. Liverpool’s interest signifies a potential replacement for Nunez. Napoli has set a hefty price tag of €130 million for Osimhen, indicating their reluctance to negotiate below their valuation.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has weighed in on Nunez’s future, hinting at a possible departure in the upcoming transfer window. Despite acknowledging Nunez’s work ethic and occasional contributions, Carragher doubts significant improvement in his performance over the past two years. He highlights Nunez’s inconsistency in front of goal and questions his ability to lead Liverpool to major honors, suggesting a pivotal decision awaits the club regarding his future.
