The Uruguayan striker has been linked with a move away from Anfield

There have been a lot of discussions over the future of Liverpool centre forward Darwin Nunez in recent days. There is a cloud of uncertainty regarding the future of the Uruguayan striker. Much of the attention is directed towards the Instagram profile of Darwin Nunez. He has recently removed all the pictures from his time at Anfield and only features the images of his playing time for Benfica and his national team.

Nunez has continued to feature in the red stripe of the Merseyside club since he moved to Anfield for a fee of £85m in the summer transfer window of 2022. He has attracted enough criticism from the fans and analysts alike for his exploits for the Reds. However, he has still managed to score 33 goals in 94 games for the club. Nunez has missed some easy chances infront of the goal and hence has faced relentless criticism from the Liverpool fans.

Now, it is in the air, that the big centre forward wants a change in his club. He has a contract running in the club till 2028, but the fact that he has deleted his Liverpool pictures have indicated that he may definitely move on, come the summer transfer window. So, let us look at the top 5 clubs who can sign Darwin Nunez in the summer transfer window.

5. Barcelona

FC Barcelona are a club who can definitely make a move for Nunez in the summer. The Catalan club needs a centre forward given that Robert Lewandowski is at the wrong side of his age. The Polish striker may leave for the Saudi Pro League or the MLS in the summer transfer window. Moreover, their new signing, Vitor Roque, has not received playtime from Xavi and hence has irked his agent.

His agent has clearly stated that he will be looking for a way to get Roque out of the club in the summer transfer window. If all this happens, Barcelona do need a centre forward replacement and will turn their attention to Darwin Nunez.

4. PSG

PSG are set to lose their star forward Kylian Mbappe for free in the summer transfer window. In all possibilities, Mbappe might make a move to Real Madrid.

Moreover, Goncalo Ramos has not had that effect in front of the goal for PSG. Keeping all these things in mind, PSG do need a star centre forward signing to replace and mask their shortcomings. Darwin Nunez may turn out to be a perfect option for Luis Enrique’s side going forward in the summer transfer window.

3. Arsenal

Arsenal have been just rising upwards with their performance in the league as well as the Champions League in the last few seasons. However, despite this uprise, Mikel Arteta’s team have been facing issues with their options at the centre forward position.

Gabriel Jesus has suffered frequent injuries during his time at the club and has also lacked goals. Arsenal have been over dependent on Bukayo Saka and lately Kai Havertz to score the goals. In all possibilities, Jesus may move on in the summer transfer window. So, Mikel Arteta can definitely consider Darwin Nunez as one of the options to bolster his centre forward position in this summer.

2. Juventus

Juventus come up as another option in the list of possible new destinations for Nunez. Juventus has signed the prolific big man, Dusan Vlahovic, from Fiorentina for €70m. However, their big money signing has been going through a terrible run of form in the Serie A in the last 8 games. He has also lost out on his place in the starting XI due to his poor stretch of form.

The Old Lady will definitely look for a centre-forward to replace or back up Vlahovic in the summer transfer window. Darwin Nunez emerges as one such option that the club from Turin will definitely or likely to make use of.

1. Atletico Madrid

The club from Madrid are another option for a new destination for Darwin Nunez. Even recent reports have claimed that Atletico Madrid are definitely considering the option of making a move for Nunez in this summer transfer window. Alvaro Morata is at the wrong side of his age and Atletico even have concerns over Angel Correa’s future.

Keeping all these things in mind, they are in search of a prolific striker who can take on the mantle of scoring goals for them. Nunez is definitely in their priority list this summer even with his wayward performances for the Merseyside club!
