Diego Forlan explains what Darwin Nunez will bring to Liverpool

Darwin Nunez will bring ‘goals’ to Liverpool and continue to develop at Anfield under the guidance of one of the ‘top three’ coaches in the world in Jurgen Klopp. That is the opinion of Uruguay legend and former Premier League striker Diego Forlan.

Liverpool completed the club-record signing of Nunez from Benfica for €75m (£64.5m) plus a further €25m (£21.5m) in add-ons earlier this month.

The 22-year-old arrives at Anfield off the back of a breakout season with Benfica, having scored 26 goals in 28 Primeira Liga appearances and a total of 34 in all competitions.

“What can Darwin Nunez bring to Liverpool? Obviously he’s still a young player, he’s still growing. He has a great set of skills, he scored a lot of goals at Benfica,” Forlan told 90min ES.

“I believe that one of the things he can bring is, without a doubt, goals. Then, as time goes on, he’ll keep growing on the technical aspect. He will get to know his abilities better and he will develop them more and more too, while also gaining experience.”
