'Verbal agreement': Fabrizio Romano gives it the 'Here we go' as Liverpool near Darwin Nunez

Fabrizio Romano has gone all-in on Darwin Nunez to Liverpool. He’s given the move his ‘Here We Go!’ treatment.

Fabrizio Romano sent out a Tweet this afternoon that appears to confirm Darwin Nunez moving to Liverpool. Talk has been everywhere over the last week that the Reds were pushing for the move, of course.

“Liverpool are now closing on Darwin Núñez deal, here we go!” wrote Romano. “Meeting in the morning with verbal agreement in place between Liverpool & Benfica, just waiting to sign. €80m plus €20m add ons fee.

“Liverpool are preparing paperworks. Five year contract, already agreed.”

No matter how in-the-know you believe Romano to be, he doesn’t usually get these ones wrong. It appears that Nunez to Liverpool could get an official announcement – pending a medical – very shortly.

Naturally, we’ll hold off on the excitement until Nunez is leaning against something in a Liverpool shirt but it certainly looks promising. Though, it has done for a few days now.

Especially alongside reports that Nunez is prepared to reject any other proposals. That was the line from Record yesterday – he’ll turn down bigger wages elsewhere for a move to Anfield.

You really can’t ask for more than that and Liverpool look to be on the verge of big business here. We’re talking about a club-record fee – one that quite deliberately forces other teams out of the running. Nunez appears to be the absolute no.1 target at Liverpool right now and they’re doing all they can to get him.

We think that’s justified. Nunez is a special talent and one you spend big money on. His record in Europe last season was fantastic, let alone his dominance in Portugal.

So now it’s just a waiting game, it seems. Liverpool are closing in on the biggest transfer in their history.
