Jürgen Klopp’s team entered the Primeira Liga in January Luis Diaz from Porto and are tempted to visit the Portuguese market again in the summer.

Diaz has settled in so quickly at Anfield and looks like natural competition for the likes of Sadio Mane. There is hope that Nunez can make the same impact.

The sought-after striker has been in incredible form this season, scoring 20 goals in 20 league games.

Notably in the Champions League, he has scored three more two against Barcelona.

The 22-year-old is currently the league’s top scorer and Benfica have included a whopping £125m release clause in Nunez’s contract.

Newcastle and West Ham want him too the Hammers, who failed to get a Deadline Day offer for him in time.

Benfica are unlikely to stand in the way of Liverpool or any other club if the offer is right given their reputation for selling their best players.
