Klopp hit, transfer decision – Liverpool give clear verdict on Darwin Nunez after Instagram storm

Darwin Nunez fights in Liverpool. The striker is under the spotlight after a run of six games without a goal as Jurgen Klopp’s side see their Premier League title challenge falter.

Nunez has 18 goals and 13 assists in 52 games this season, a marked improvement from 15 goals and four assists in 42 games last campaign. However, the Uruguayan has frustrated fans with his finishing in recent games and has seen his place in the Reds’ starting line-up come under considerable threat as a result.

He has started just one of Liverpool’s last three games and recently deleted any photos of him in action for the club from his Instagram profile. This has prompted considerable speculation about Nunez’s future and what the future may hold for the 24-year-old, signed from Benfica for £64m in 2022.

Here, the LiverpoolECHO sportswriters have their say on Nunez and what could be next for the Uruguay international…

Your view of Darwin Nunez will depend on whether you think the glass is half full or half empty.

Indeed, it has been a much-improved second season at Anfield for the Uruguayan, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions and provided a further 13 assists. Sure, there have been highlights – see his winner against Newcastle United in August or his spectacular effort against Bournemouth in November’s League Cup tie – but there have also been some pretty horrendous misses along the way. Many too.
