Agent confirms Tottenham contact to sign £83 million star Nunez – Premier League message sent
The agent of Darwin Nunez has claimed that Tottenham are one of a number of clubs to have made an offer to try and sign Darwin Nunez
Despite the fact the transfer window is still many months away there is still alot of speculation in the media about the type of players that Antonio Conte will get to bring to the club, and how much the board will hand him in the transfer window
Now we all know that Harry Kane is a man that is in the headlines alot, as all the big clubs are keen, and if he decides to leave, then Conte will need an immediate replacement for the star player
There has already been a number of players linked with a move to the club, but now it seems that Tottenham have started making moves to try and secure a deal for the impressing Nunez
The Uruguayan hitman has plundered 26 goals for the Portuguese giants in all competitions this season, and his performances has attracted interest from Man City and Liverpool over the past few weeks
A Bola have claimed that the 22-year-old’s agent, Edgardo Lasalvia, has revealed that Spurs have made contact with Benfica concerning a move
The report then goes on to state that, as a result of the Uruguay international’s spectacular form both domestically and in European competition this season, they will demand a figure of around €100m (£83.5m) in order to part with Nunez
However, amid all the speculation, former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has opened up and told clubs that Nunez may struggle in the Premier League, Wenger told beIN SPORTS: “We spoke about Nunez before the game.
“That’s where you realise the physical power in the Premier League.
“What looks very quick in the Portuguese league suddenly when he was confronted with the pace and power of [Virgil] Van Dijk or [Ibrahima] Konate, he couldn’t cope”
Nunez is a born scorer – but we will never know if he has the ability to play in the Premier League unless he comes here
Will Tottenham pay that much for the player? we do not know. But if Kane leaves then they will need to sign a striker that can score 20-goals on a yearly basis
