Negotiation

According to Correiro da Manha, Liverpool are interested in Nunes in this summer transfer window with the intention of replacing Thiago Alcantara and continuing the process of renewing an ageing squad in several areas.

The 23-year-old Portuguese midfielder has been an important part of Rubén Amorín's side in recent years. He arrived at Sporting CP in January 2019 and made the jump to the first team in May 2020. Last season he scored 4 goals and distributed 5 assists in 50 games played, being important in the vast majority of the matches. At the age of 23, he has made 100 appearances for the first team.

It is a profile that can play both as a central midfielder and as an inside midfielder, it is also a profile that can also contribute to the possible absences of Fabinho or Jordan Henderson. He is a player that Jurgen Klopp likes a lot, who knows that he needs to reinforce the squad in order to stay in the fight for titles.
