Nunez transfer offer, centre-back claim & Rafa slammed – Latest Liverpool FC News

Wednesday’s Liverpool news has seen Darwin Nunez linked with Barcelona as the Reds reportedly eye a move for a player who has scored against them this season.


Nunez ‘offered’ to Barcelona

Nunez has had an up-and-down season, with his finishing coming under increasing scrutiny, and it remains to be seen what the future holds for him.

According to a report from Spanish outlet Sport, the Uruguayan has been ‘offered’ to Barcelona by his agent, Jorge Mendes, as a possible replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Recent claims have suggested that Liverpool have no plans to offload Nunez at the end of the season, however, so who knows what to believe – though we do know the Spanish side don’t have a lot of money to spend!

Do you want him to stay this summer?
