Benfica, Liverpool agree on Darwin Núñez transfer

AP – Portuguese club Benfica announced yesterday that it had reached agreement with Liverpool for Uruguay striker Darwin Núñez to transfer to Anfield for an initial EUR75 million.

Benfica said the 22-year-old still has to agree terms with Jurgen Klopp’s team.

In a brief statement to the Portuguese stock market, Benfica said the transfer sum could rise to EUR100 million based on variables.

Núñez scored 34 goals in 41 matches for Benfica last season.

He found the net in both legs of Benfica’s Champions League quarterfinal with Liverpool.
