Former Premier League Goalkeeper Ben Foster believes new Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez is “guaranteed to score a few goals” this season.
Darwin Nunez took the footballing world by storm in the 2021/2022 season, with the forward scoring 34 goals in 41 appearances playing for the Portuguese side Benfica.
Two of these goals he netted against his new club Liverpool, when the two sides met in the Champions League.
Therefore, it’s no wonder Klopp did all he could to bring in the Uruguayan superstar, (even if he did cost the club at least £64 million!).
With these kinds of statistics, combined with his desire to succeed, Liverpool fans should be excited for what the future holds for their young talent.
The former Watford and Man United goalkeeper, Ben Foster, is especially excited to watch Nunez succeed in England, and after playing against nearly every Premier League star in the last 20 years, his opinion is one to be valued.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Foster believes that Nunez is the perfect signing for The Reds.
Although he admits he has only seen the games that Nunez played in the Champions League, Foster thinks he looks “absolutely incredible”.
In his podcast, Foster also showed his faith in Liverpool’s judgement saying that the “one thing you’ve got to say about Liverpool, (is that) they don’t get many transfers wrong, especially with ‘big boys’”.
Foster goes on to comment that because of Nunez’s versatility, having the ability to play as a striker, a front-three and a left-winger, he will be able to “run his socks off”, being “a sure-fire hit that’s guaranteed to score a few goals”.
However, Nunez’s arrival does also signal the end of Sadio Mane’s time at Anfield, with the Senegalese winger set to depart the club after six years.
Mane has agreed a deal with the German giants, Bayern Munich, for a sale that could provide Liverpool with around £35 million.
Foster, like most Liverpool fans, will be sad to see him go, commenting that “he is going to be a big miss” at the club.
Other than Nunez arriving at Anfield, it's important not to forget that Liverpool have also signed fellow youngsters, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey.
So with all three of their new signings being no older than 22, it is no wonder why Ben Foster believes that Liverpool are “future-proofing” themselves for the next decade.
