'How may I assist you?': Trent Alexander-Arnold welcomes Darwin Nunez to Liverpool, the striker responds

Trent Alexander-Arnold sent a cheeky tweet to Darwin Nunez as Liverpool confirmed the Uruguayan’s arrival on Tuesday. The new star responded.

Liverpool finally confirmed on Tuesday that Darwin Nunez is a Red. He’ll wear the no.27 shirt next season (though, we suspect it’s a placeholder) and could potentially become the club’s record signing.

Per the Athletic, Nunez costs an initial £64m that could rise to £85m with add-ons. Liverpool are going all-in on the 22-year-old, then.

And there’s excitement all over for the striker. Jurgen Klopp has talked about just how good Nunez is – and how good he might become. We see plenty of reasons to get excited, too, as the striker ticks so many boxes for Liverpool.

One other Red who can’t wait to link up with Nunez is Trent Alexander-Arnold, who sent out a little ‘welcome’ tweet to his new teammate.

“Welcome to Liverpool!” he wrote. “How may I assist you?”

It’s one that appeared to resonate with Nunez as he sent back a little fist bump in response.

Alexander-Arnold welcomes Darwin Nunez to Liverpool with a tweet

In truth, Alexander-Arnold is probably thrilled that Liverpool signed Nunez. He’s exactly the type of forward that the full-back wants in the box – tall, physical, always running in behind and a natural finisher.

The Scouser has set records with his creativity from full-back and did so again last season. He was a creative sensation and Liverpool relied heavily on Alexander-Arnold.

And he did it while Liverpool played most of the season with three wingers up top. Nunez, then, should only benefit Alexander-Arnold as a player who can operate as an obvious target, while also drawing defenders towards him and freeing others.

It’s likely a little premature to say we expect Alexander-Arnold to set new records now that Nunez has arrived – we need to see how the new signing fits in first. But it’s certainly something to watch out for next season.
