Incoming Liverpool manager Arne Slot wants Darwin Nunez gone – and replaced with a nine-figure superstar who’s certain to move this summer.

That’s the outrageous claim being made today, as the Reds’ Uruguayan hitman faces more criticism for his recent form. Nunez has scored just twice in the Premier League since the start of March, with high-profile misses costing Liverpool in their pursuit of a Quadruple. 

The striker cost Liverpool a reported €75 million, with €25m owed to Benfica should he hit certain thresholds on Merseyside – but according to The Telegraph, Nunez’s biggest ally at Anfield is the outgoing Jurgen Klopp, plunging his future in doubt.

A report from Corriere Dello Sport via TEAMtalk says that incoming boss Slot wants to replace Nunez with Nigerian star Victor Osimhen, making the Napoli star his No.1 target.
