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…

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.

Virgil van Dijk played a role in convincing Nunez of the move, although you feel the Dutchman wouldn’t have needed to be too persuasive.
