Darwin Nunez: Man City target will be ‘one heck of a centre-forward’ and is ‘built for Premier League’… but too soon for Benfica ace to replace Sergio Aguero

Manchester City have been told it may be ‘too soon’ for them to sign Darwin Nunez to replace Sergio Aguero.
Aguero appears to be nearing the end of his time at the Etihad with his contract expiring at the end of the season, and City have started assessing options to succeed their all-time top scorer.

According to the Telegraph, Benfica forward Nunez has emerged as a potential successor to Aguero, with City keeping tabs on the 21-year-old Uruguay international and monitoring his form.
Nunez, who began his career with Penarol in his homeland before joining Almeria in Spain in 2019, has netted eight goals in 21 games this season.
He signed for Benfica last summer for around £21million (€24m), becoming Benfica’s most expensive signing ever and also the biggest transfer from both Almeria and Spain’s second division.
It was a huge sum to pay for a player whose only experience of European football was scoring 16 goals in the Segunda Division, but Benfica’s faith in the youngster will be repaid should City come calling.
The 21-year-old has been particularly prolific in the Europa League – with five goals in five appearancesAFP OR LICENSORS
In fact, with the Portuguese outfit tying Nunez down to a five-year contract just last summer, they can set whatever asking price they want – especially when one of Europe’s biggest clubs have shown their interest in him.
But is Nunez the best option to succeed Aguero at the Etihad? European football expert Andy Brassell joined talkSPORT’s Trans Europe Express on Sunday to provide the lowdown on the wonderkid.
And while he is a huge fan of Nunez, Brassell has doubts over him becoming Man City’s leading striker at this early stage of his career.
“I wonder if it is a bit too soon, if we are talking about him replacing Aguero,” said Brassell.
Nunez has also scored twice for Uruguay, having won four caps for his countryAFP OR LICENSORS
“I love his all-round game; it is absolutely fantastic. He is not just a goalscorer, and he’s built for the Premier League; he’s super strong, he’s quick, good in the air, intelligent enough to create for others.
“He is going to be one heck of a centre-forward, and Benfica really pulled off a coup in getting him on board – even at €24million. They know that once the rest of Europe sees him, they will be able to charge pretty much what they like for him.
“I do still wonder if it’s a little too soon after just half a season in Portugal to sell him to Man City, because he was in the second tier with Almeria last season.
“So he’s going to be great for someone really great, quite soon. But this soon? I’m not so sure.”
