Nunez fuels Barcelona links with Instagram post

Nunez and Araujo, teammates in the Uruguayan national team, recently appeared together in a photo shared on the striker's Instagram page.

Sporting sunglasses and caps, they smiled for the camera, with Nunez captioning the post "TQM hermano," Spanish for "I love you, brother," per SB Nation.

While the snapshot could be seen as a friendly moment between international colleagues, it adds fuel to speculation about Nunez's potential move to Barcelona amidst his challenges at Liverpool.

Rumours swirling around the 24-year-old and a possible transfer to the Catalan club suggest his departure from Anfield this summer could be on the horizon, especially with reports positioning him as a candidate to succeed Robert Lewandowski.

Darwin Nunez's frustrations at Liverpool

Darwin has shown signs of frustration with his tenure at Liverpool lately, notably storming off the field at Anfield after his side's 4-2 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, May 5.

In a puzzling move following an important win for his team, he subsequently deleted all Liverpool-related content from his Instagram page, according to talkSPORT.

Despite being at the club for two years, his time has been marked by unfulfilled potential since his £85 million transfer from Benfica, leading to speculation about a possible departure.

Is Liverpool going to replace Nunez with Osimhen?

Sports Brief also reported that Liverpool's disappointing season finale has reportedly prompted the club to join the pursuit of Napoli's star forward, Victor Osimhen, in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Liverpool's interest in Osimhen reportedly stems from fan dissatisfaction with current striker Darwin Nunez, whose performances have failed to meet expectations in his second season at Anfield, according to Liverpool.com.

Nunez, the Uruguayan forward, has squandered numerous scoring chances this season, casting doubts on his suitability to spearhead Liverpool's attack in the next campaign.
