With 11 goals netted this season, including those against Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the Champions League, Benfica forward Darwin Nunez has been attracting interest from several sides.
The Portuguese media regularly comes up with stories naming new teams who joined the fray for the 22-year-old, and as a fresh report from Uruguay, there seems to be one more English side who want the star.
According to Traspasos, Arsenal are interested in signing Nunez as well. The outlet states that Mikel Arteta’s side are alongside Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid in the battle for the player’s transfer.
It’s said that Aguias’ management would not accept less than €40 million for the highly-rated player, even though it is not made clear if that would be a figure for the winter or the summer market.
He is currently protected by a buy-out clause of €150 million, and recent reports from the Portuguese press have been saying that he would only leave in the near future in case someone shows up with that fee.
Speaking of a possible summer move, it has been recently said that the Primeira Liga giants eye record-breaking sale, which is €120 million.
