Darwin Nunez to follows in the footsteps of Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes.

Potential club record signing for Liverpool After completing his transfer to Anfield, Darwin Nunez has followed in Manchester United player Bruno Fernandes’ footsteps.

Due to his historic transfer to Liverpool, Darwin Nunez has been named the Premier League Player of the Year.

The 23-year-old striker, who twice before joining Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes, scored a remarkable 26 goals for Benfica in 28 matches in the Portuguese top division to win the award. Nunez’s impressive season, which including four assists, made him a deserving winner, although Fernandes won the prize twice before joining Old Trafford.

Nunez will be Liverpool’s next acquisition, and the Reds will be hoping for a similar outcome after agreeing to a contract costing up to £85 million, a new club record, to sign the Uruguayan.

Before taking home the top honor, Nunez had already won the Golden Boot in Portugal and made the top flight’s squad of the year for the seasons of 21 and 22. The former Atletico Penarol star posted two adorable pictures of him and his son, Darwin, standing next to the trophy with the message, “Son, your dad was a scorer in the Portuguese League.”

Luis Diaz, a new Reds colleague of Nunez’s, was also vying for the prestigious award. Liverpool paid £50 million on the eve of the transfer deadline to get the 25-year-old Colombian winger from Porto in January after an outstanding half-term. Now that he has both of the intriguing strikers in his lineup, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp can look forward to using them in his all-star forward line.

Following Diaz’s quick adaptation to Merseyside and contribution to Liverpool’s FA Cup and League Cup victories this spring, Klopp believes Nunez is another star waiting to happen for the Reds. The German told liverpoolfc.com, “Darwin is a superb player; already incredibly good but so much potential to get even better.”
