Liverpool have reached a verbal agreement to buy Darwin Nunez from Benfica and are preparing the paperwork to complete the deal.

They will pay a guaranteed €80m (£68.3m) for the striker and up to another €20m in add-ons, meaning the Uruguayan could become their record signing.

Virgil van Dijk’s £75m fee is the biggest paid by Liverpool, who have acted decisively over Nunez in the face of interest from Manchester United. Nunez was the top scorer in Portugal in the 2021-22 season with 26 league goals and scored 34 in total, including two against Liverpool in the Champions League.
