INTEREST in Nunez, Wrexham DREAMING of Reds player: Liverpool FC news recap

The fallout from Darwin Nunez's antics following Liverpool's 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday continues.

The Uruguayan, after heading straight for the tunnel after the final whistle, then followed that up by purging his Instagram of all posts made during his time at the club. He also blocked a number of Liverpool-related accounts on Twitter.

Now, Nunez is being linked with a move away from the club, with Barcelona reportedly having had contact with Nunez’s representatives over a summer move.

However, another Spanish side is also poised ahead of the transfer window.


PL legend delivers HARSH Darwin Nunez verdict

Jermain Defoe, ninth on the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers, said the Reds risk "falling behind" if they persist with Darwin Nunez up top.

Keeping Van Dijk is 'more important'

That said, former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes the club should prioritise keeping Virgil van Dijk over Mohamed Salah as exit links continue to swirl over the superstar pair.

“I know that sounds a bit silly because of Salah’s goals but Liverpool don't struggle to make chances.”
