Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has been valued at the same price as Bayern Munich star Harry Kane.

The Reds forward, who joined from Portuguese outfit Benfica last summer for an initial €75million, has enjoyed a successful start to the campaign having found the net twice and provided a further assist in four appearances.

According to the Football Observatory, Nunez is worth €100million alongside former Tottenham Hotspur talisman Kane who holds both the Spurs and England goal scoring records.

Joining Nunez and Kane on the lengthy list of those valued at €100million is Julian Alvarez, Eduardo Camavinga, Marcus Rashford, Eder Militao, Rafael Leao, Josko Gvardiol, Rodri, Enzo Fernandez, Lautaro Martinez, Antonio Silva and Victor Osimhen.

The Uruguayan ace has featured 46 times for Liverpool in all competitions since arriving on Merseyside, scoring 17 times and registering five assists in total.

He gained praise from Arsenal legend Ian Wright last season with the former Premier League striker making a ‘sensational’ claim regarding the 24-year-old on the Wrighty’s House Podcast.

Nunez praise

“I feel it is going to happen for him as he is playing sensationally,” Wright said following the Reds’ victory over Everton last season.

“The goal he set up for Salah [against Everton] and his all-round energetic pace and output, he is doing everything except scoring.⁣

“I can’t put my finger on why someone with such good technical ability, it’s not even a case of needing to slow down before he shoots, it just doesn’t seem like it is going to go in for him at the moment.⁣

“The fact he is not scoring as frequently as he would like to score, you have to get yourself in a situation where you can hit the target instantly.⁣”

Nunez has seemingly turned a new leaf so far this campaign, looking much sharper in front of goal following his heroics in the 2-1 victory over Newcastle.

Maybe, just maybe, this might be his season.
