It seems Liverpool’s visit to the Estadio da Luz this week didn’t only end up with a 3-1 victory over Benfica in the UEFA Champions League’s quarter-finals, as it also allowed the club to be impressed with a player from As Aguias.

According to a recent report from the newspaper Record, striker Darwin Nunez’s performance led to those in charge and even stars at the Merseysiders to be convinced by the Uruguay international.

It’s stated that after the encounter, there were many conversations in the Reds’ squad regarding his exhibition, with the Egypt international Mohamed Salah even telling the Primeira Liga giants’ Adel Taarabt that he was impressed with Darwin’s quality.

The South American scored his side’s only goal against the English outfit which gives the Portugueses a little bit of hope about a qualification at Liverpool.

That is an interesting story even though Nunez has been constantly linked to multiple Premier League clubs, Jurgen Klopp’s side have yet to be included in the stories regarding the hunt for his signing.

The word in the country is that Benfica, who have the talent protected with a €150 million exit clause, will demand more than €80 million to let him go.
