Darwin Nunez Transfer Links To Manchester City Grow Stronger Amidst Tottenham Defeat: Benfica striker heavily linked with a move to the England giants.
After being downed 2-0 by Tottenham, it was only prudent that Manchester City’s shortcomings would be talked about ensuing the result. And the biggest glaring weakness in the club’s squad currently is evidently of a striker of the calibre of Sergio Aguero, a player who can take the onus of popping up with regular intervals.
Listless and lacklustre against Tottenham in the second half as they failed to break down a compact and sound defensive unit, a lack of a second plan massively hurt Manchester City. It was massively down to the lack of a striker who can not only come up with scorching shots but can lunge onto the headers as well.
Speculations Grow Rife Of Darwin Nunez Moving To City
With Aguero fraught with injuries and his deal at the club ending in the summer of 2021, a move for a new striker could very well be on the cards for City. Amidst this, Benfica’s Darwin Nunez has been heavily linked to the Premier League with reports in The Telegraph stating that City are keeping an eye out for the player.
Nunez’s Torching Start To The Season Impresses City
Benfica’s most expensive signing this year when he arrived at Benfica from Almeria for 24 million euros, the 21 year old striker has managed to make a real name for himself in no time.
With five goals and six assists to go with them in the space of 11 matches, he’s not only proved his mettle but shown why he’s considered such an exciting prospect at the global stage.
His runaway start has already seen Benfica’s head coach, Jorge Jesus tout the transfer value for him to surpass the over 100 million pound figure the club received from Atletico Madrid for Joao Felix. Clearly well endowed, the striker will be looking to break the bank and continue to draw interest from City in the time to come.
