Liverpool are on the brink of signing striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica for a deal reportedly worth around £85million, prompting this tweet from journalist Jay Motty.

Cue much hand-wringing from Reds fans and the but but but but but Andy Robertson responses.

Tammy Abraham has been linked with an immediate return to the Premier League following an impressive first season in Serie A.

However, he didn’t get a chance to put himself in the shop window on Tuesday night, with Gareth Southgate keeping him on the bench for England against Germany. Maybe this is why.

Darwin Nunez Biography, Wiki

For Biography starters, the Striker bears the full names Darwin Gabriel Núñez Ribeiro. He was born on the 24th day of June 1999 to his mother, Silvia Ribeiro and father, Bibiano Núñez, in Artigas, Uruguay.

Darwin Nunez came to the world as one of two children (himself and an elder brother) born out of the marital union between his parents, who are pictured below.

Darwin was born as a shy kid, a boy with an extraordinary force to succeed in life. Truth be told, the silence and shyness of Núñez did make up for his big ambition to get his family out of hardship.

The footballer spent his early life in the shanty area of Artigas, a city in Northern Uruguay. Darwin grew up with his one and only brother (his hero) who goes by the name Junior Nunez.

The tale of the forward is one that denotes rags to riches – like many footballers whom we have written about – the likes of Angel D Maria, Romelu Lukaku and Jamie Vardy etc. These soccer stars rose from poverty to greatness.

Put simply, Darwin Nunez hails from a poor neighbourhood and an impoverished family background.

The footballer’s parents, starting with his Mum was a bottle hawker and seller. Silvia Ribeiro did that to make her family survive the realities of the early 2000s.

On the other hand, Darwin Nunez’s Dad (Bibiano Núñez) is a construction worker who earned very little with his job.

In truth, there was always no guarantee that monies from his workplace would take care of his family members (both nuclear and extended).
