The Benfica striker looks certain to join Jurgen Klopp’s team after his stunning campaign.

Now the move appears to be on the verge of being completed with talks between the two clubs ramping up.

All that remains to be agreed is the transfer fee, and the Mail states that Liverpool chief Julian Ward is in Portugal to thrash out an agreement.

Benfica allegedly want £68m up front with a further £17m in add-ons.

However, Ward is hoping to negotiate a deal of around £60m for Nunez.

The 22-year-old striker scored 34 goals in 41 matches for Benfica last term - including strikes against the Reds in the Champions League.

Both Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are also keen on the ace.

However, Liverpool appear to be leading the chase as they look to get his signature wrapped up.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has also offered his own update on the situation.

He claims that the player has agreed a six-year contract with the Anfield side.

And he says the move could be finalised as early as tomorrow.

His report states that Nunez is currently in Spain along with his agent.

But he is due to arrive in Merseyside on Monday to undergo his medical.
