Present at Benfica (26 goals in 33 games), Darwin Núñez has aroused the interest of several English football clubs. This Monday, the athleticism signaled a possible interest from Tottenham.
Aware of the possible departure of Harry Kane this summer, the London club is looking for a replacement for the England international. It is in this sense that the English portal reports that Jorge Mendes, a Portuguese businessman, approached Daniel Levy, president of Tottenham, and Fabio Paratici, sports director, with whom he has good personal relations, for the possible hiring of Darwin Núñez. Besides the Uruguayan from Benfica, Rome’s Tammy Abraham also appeared in the conversation.
Should either of these two transfers materialize, Jorge Mendes would also have an open avenue to negotiate Harry Kane’s transfer to Manchester United. Although he is not the coach of the English captain, the Portuguese intermediary maintains excellent relations with the red devilswhich would make business easier.
