Liverpool rising star can be sold for a squad rebuild

After Jurgen Klopp announced he will be leaving this summer the future of players is uncertain. New manager Arne Slot has cleared his intention of rebuilding the squad according to his will. This can mean we can see certain players leaving the squad this summer. This rebuild can start by selling Liverpool rising star striker Darwin Nunez.

Liverpool could give Arne Slot the opportunity to revamp his squad. Liverpool are planning to repeat their Philippe Coutinho strategy when it comes to sorting the future of Darwin Nunez. The Reds forward has been linked with an exit ahead of next season. Moreover with speculation ramping up after he deleted all Liverpool-related posts from his Instagram profile.

Nunez has bagged 18 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season in his most prolific campaign since making the jump to English football. However, it has been reported that Barcelona could come calling when the transfer window opens later this year.

Is it a good decision for Liverpool rising star to leave?

According to The Sun, Nunez has been lined up as a potential replacement for Robert Lewandowski as Barcelona look to offload their highest earners in the summer. He went away to Disneyland Paris with Barcelona star and international team-mate, Ronald Araujo. This trip was ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Villa Park next week.

Nunez’s future at Liverpool appears to be less than certain despite the forward being tied down to the Reds until 2028. Only time will tell if he ends up departing Anfield over the coming months, with Slot likely to have the final say when he takes over from Jurgen Klopp.

If it becomes clear that an exit would be the best option for Nunez. Liverpool could benefit from taking the same approach as they did with Coutinho. The former Reds midfielder was sold to Barcelona for around £146million in 2018. It can also help with Liverpool investing that money into shoring up their defensive ranks.
