Liverpool FC News - Darwin Nunez Signs From Benfica




Darwin Nunez has joined Liverpool from Benfica for a club-record £85m; the Uruguay forward has signed a six-year contract at Anfield; the 22-year-old scored 34 times for the Portuguese side in all competitions last season

Liverpool have completed the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica for a club-record fee of £85m, with the Uruguay striker signing a six-year contract.

The deal is subject to a work permit and international clearance. Darwin will wear the No 27 shirt at Anfield, which was vacated by Divock Origi this summer.

The 22-year-old scored 34 times for Benfica in all competitions last season, including goals in both legs of the club's Champions League quarter-final defeat to Liverpool in April.

The upfront fee of £64m will rise to £85m should Nunez reach a number of milestones outlined in his agreement, which range from scoring goals to winning the Champions League.

"I'm really happy and delighted to be here at Liverpool. It's a massive club," Nunez told Liverpool's club website. "It's a pleasure to be here in Liverpool and I'm very happy to be a part of this great club.

"I've played against Liverpool and I've seen them in lots of games in the Champions League, and it's my style of play. There are some great players here and I think it's going to suit my style of play.

"As I say, I've watched quite a lot and it's a very big club and I hope I can give everything that I've got in order to help the team.
