Rumors of a trade for Joao Felix are "false"... Liverpool never consider Darwin Nunez leaving Transfers

In this summer’s transfer market, Liverpool aimed to strengthen its midfield and final line. As for midfielders, the club successfully upgraded from last season with the acquisitions of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch.

The eagerly anticipated left-handed center back missed out on Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, who had shown the most interest, and as a result, reinforcements could not be implemented. 

Nevertheless, Joe Gomez has performed beyond expectations and, along with Joel Matip, is likely to support the regular group.

And despite Liverpool’s complete and utter lack of attempts to strengthen their forward lineup, the winger’s name was mentioned in the media on numerous occasions. 

Portuguese international Joao Felix, who has been smoldering at Atletico Madrid, was reportedly one of the candidates.

Some media reported that Liverpool had offered Uruguayan international Darwin Nunez for the player in the form of an exchange trade, but Fabrizio Romano denied the reports and assured that he had never considered releasing him.

“Darwin Nunez – Despite rumours about a swap deal for Joao Felix being discussed, Liverpool never wanted Darwin Nunez to leave this summer,”

“It was very clear on club side, the board and also the manager decided to keep Darwin in very clear way. Darwin was very happy with Liverpool considering him untouchable.”


In his second year with the club, his shooting accuracy has certainly improved, and he was a key player in the dramatic comeback against Newcastle. 

Trading the Uruguayan striker, who has scored a lot of goals during his time at Benfica, for the Portuguese forward, who has a strong image as a chance-maker, is not beneficial for Liverpool.

It is only factual news from the gossip papers, and we hope to see Darwin Nunez, who is showing signs of awakening, in front of goal.
