And it’s little wonder as to why. The 11-capped Uruguay International is a truly exceptional talent and was recently described as such by The Analyst.

It seems as though West Ham could have our work cut-out though…

Liverpool eyeing brilliant striker transfer swoop

The Times reckon that the Reds are trying to shift Sadio Mane and have a plan to sign Benfica ace Darwin Nunez as his replacement.

The Reds’ apparent interest in the South American is a real shame for West Ham because he would be the absolutely perfect summer signing for us.

The 22-year-old’s playing style is quintessentially South American. He is a tenacious presser, plays with proper physicality and has real technical ability. He seems to be ideally suited to the Premier League what with its intense and robust nature.

He will undoubtedly go on to become one of the very best centre-forwards in world football.

The Athletic reckon that Nunez could be signed for around €60 million (£51 million) this summer.

Considering his talent and potential, that could end up proving to be exceptional value.

And if Liverpool do win the summer transfer race for Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, it will very much be our loss and their gain.
