Nunez, 22 arrived in Liverpool from Benfica in a mega deal worth £85m. The Uruguayan striker has scored 34 goals and made 4 assists in the just concluded season for Benfica.
Liverpool quickly moved on from Sadio Mané’s transfer saga and wouldn’t want to gamble on whether the Senegalese will stay or move.
Nunez’s career in first-team football started at Club Atlético Penarol, having risen through the youth ranks at the Uruguayan club.
He then earned a move to Spain with second-tier side UD Almeria, spending the 2019-20 campaign there before joining Benfica.
Nunez will wear the No.27 shirt for Liverpool and becomes the third Uruguayan to sign for the club, following on from Luis Suárez and Sebastian Coates.
When asked what it feels like to play in Liverpool during his interview on Liverpool TV. The Uruguayan said:
“Thanks very much. I’m really happy and delighted to be here in Liverpool. It’s a massive club. I’d like to thank my partner and my parents and my son, who is a real source of pride for me. They’ve been really important to me in the stages of my career. I’m proud of them, and for the work we do, me and my partner, as a team and I’m grateful to her that I’m here. It’s a pleasure to be here in Liverpool and I’m very happy to be a part of this great club”
