For most Premier League strikers, scoring as many goals as abs they have would probably be slightly disappointing.
But, by the looks of Darwin Nunez’s latest Instagram photo, that might be a decent return for his first season in the Premier League.
Liverpool confirmed the signing of the striker from Benfica last month, in a deal that could reach a club record £85million.
The Uruguayan scored four goals in a recent friendly against RB Leipzig and looks ready to take the Premier League by storm.
And his goalscoring exploits over the last couple of years might be down to the way he has bulked up since his first season at Benfica.
His new physique was on show when he posted an image on Instagram as he and his new Reds teammates enjoyed a day off during their pre-season training camp in Austria… fishing!
As well as more hair, Nunez now has more muscle – and at least two more abs – than when he posted a similar image from 2020.

Whilst Liverpool won’t be able to take much credit, seeing as Nunez has been there for just over a month, the club may be looking to replicate the way Bayern Munich have transformed their players in recent years.
And, by the look of the other Liverpool players in Nunez’s fishing-themed Instagram photo, there looks to be more muscles than mussels.
Almost as impressive is the whopper of a fish they caught – look at the size of it!
