Nunez, Liverpool’s second-highest goalscorer behind Mohamed Salah in the Premier League with 11 goals, has enjoyed a decent campaign.

The 24-year-old is also the Reds’ joint-top scorer in the Europa League with five goals.

However, with only 18 goals in 51 appearances for Liverpool this term, there is a feeling the former Benfica man would have scored more goals with better finishing.

The stats back Nunez’s critics as he has missed 26 big chances in 33 Premier League games – the second highest in the English top flight.

By contrast, Napoli striker Osimhen has registered 15 goals in 28 matches, while Boniface has 27 goal contributions (18 goals, nine assists) in 29 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen.

Boniface’s goals have already helped Bayer Leverkusen claim their first Bundesliga title in history while they are on course for a Europa League and German Cup treble.

Ex-Aston Villa man Reo-Coker has urged Liverpool to include Darwin Nunez in a potential swap deal to sign Osimhen or Boniface this summer.
