Arsenal is heavily scouting Portuguese league star

Darwin Nunez has become Arsenal’s latest obsession as they try to add a young world-class attacker to their squad in the summer.

The Gunners wanted a move for Dusan Vlahovic, but he joined Juventus three months ago, instead.

They have targeted the likes of Dominic Calvert Lewin and Ollie Watkins as well, but the player that has their attention the most now is Nunez.

The Uruguayan plays for Benfica and he has been pivotal in their run to the quarterfinal of the Champions League.

His league form is also impressive, and he is one of the finest players Arsenal can add to their squad.

A report via Sport Witness says the Gunners are seriously scouting him, and he could be the main striker that joins them in the summer.

However, he will not be cheap, and in recent weeks, Benfica has increased their asking price to 100m euros.

Just Arsenal Opinion

After missing out on Vlahovic, Arsenal will be serious about winning the race for Nunez.

He looks the real deal and scoring against Liverpool confirmed he is a player that can make an impact at a big club.

However, we must be prepared to pay a big fee to land him.

  1. €100m for Darwin who? We need to employ Liverpool transfer brokers and financial advisers

    1. His club have put up a pricetag of 80M€ or 67M£,which is reasonable in today’s market don’t you think?

  2. This is the first JA rumour for some considerable time that I am inclined to believe as credible.

    I THINK WE WILL TRY to sign him, though the fee might well prove beyond us.

  3. Please tell Arteta to sign capable midfielders, else signing a striker would be almost useless,

    Did you see how Bruno was the generator which Newcastle ran.

  4. I think we are OK for midfielders to be honest Longbenark, with maybe Azeez and Patino coming in to add to that for next season, I’m not sure we will buy in that department myself

    We create chances but don’t score enough to be a genuine top 4 team so we do need to buy a striker or three

    I agree with jon fox above that Nunez might be one of the more credible rumours

  5. Point is,top strikers are rare and dont come cheap. Nunez is the real deal but I think he will prefer coming if we make it to the CL. That said, I also feel we need another quality signing in the midfield in the likes of Bissouma/Rubin Neves/Renato Sanchez. look how Guimaraes is running the Newcastle midfield. I hope Arsenal invest and invest wisely in the summer. First and foremost we must make it to the CL.
