Speaking to Echo, Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold said: “When we played against Darwin Nunez we knew he was a special player.
“He brings goals, scores a lot of goals, gets himself in good positions, will work hard and fight for wins — and that’s what we need and what we expect when we bring players in.
“That’s the club mentality, and I think he will slot in. Over the years, there has been a few signings where, when the club is linked to them, us players get excited and we’re like ‘Yeah, he will work for us’. This was definitely one of them.”
Nunez rejected a proposal from Manchester United to join Liverpool recently with Benfica getting an underlying transfer expense of €75 million.
The 23-year-old scored an goal in his fist game for the Reds, assisting Jurgen Klopp’s men with beating Manchester City 3-1 and land the Community Shield.
