Liverpool could be set to make their first major first-team signing of the summer in rapid order, as the Darwin Nunez links continue to suggest an agreement is close.
Darwin Nunez deal moves closer as terms agreed
Personal terms: done. Box it off – Liverpool and Benfica striker Darwin Nunez have a total agreement on his contract for an Anfield move.
No direct details are in the report regarding his salary, but the more important aspect is that there is not yet an agreement between the clubs.
The expectation is still over a deal which could reach £85m including add-ons, which will be significant but achievable if the Uruguayan hits the heights expected of him.
And while Liverpool are trying to land the striker now, Barcelona could have had him years ago for 20% of the price – if they had listened to former Red and their own striker, Luis Suarez.

We would all loved to have done what this kid has. Good luck, EDB!
The time I have spent at Liverpool Football Club has been special. Coming as a boy with a dream to play for the club I supported from birth to then leaving as a young man having fulfilled that dream.

Tonight’s game is Switzerland against Spain! Sounds decent to be fair. Probably still won’t watch like.
