The Reds have landed their man, with Nunez signing on the dotted line to become Jurgen Klopp‘s latest attacking weapon.

Nunez’s arrival is one that is to see him become the Reds’ club-record signing, and after confirmation of the deal was made official by Liverpool, fans were quick to share their excitement and notice one detail regarding his new shirt number…
My evening will be spent consuming every bit of Darwin Nunez content I can?
A very exciting signing. Up the reds!

Liverpool have taken replacing Origi so seriously that they might as well change Darwin Nunez’ name to Divock.

Very happy with Darwin Nunez joining. Very unhappy he’s wearing #27.

Delighted to get this young man! Offers Liverpool something different! 6 year contract, most of that working with Jürgen Klopp! He definitely knows where the net is and he certainly has the potential to improve further at just 22! Welcome Darwin and YNWA! https://t.co/AEuqoekG18

The Uruguayan arrives at Anfield with plenty of promise and potential, coming off the back of a 34-goal campaign across 41 games in all competitions, two of those strikes came against Liverpool.
He is to wear the No. 27 shirt at Liverpool, and we’ll likely get first sight of Nunez with his new teammates when the squad reconvenes for pre-season on July 4.
