Benfica centre-forward Darwin Nunez emerges as a transfer target for Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to a report.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly ready to battle the likes of Manchester City for the signature of Benfica centre-forward Darwin Nunez.

The 21-year-old only arrived at the Estadio da Luz from Almeria over the summer but has made a strong impression for the Portuguese club, scoring five times and contributing six assists in 11 appearances.

A recent report claimed that Man City had identified the Uruguay international as a potential replacement for Sergio Aguero, who could leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

However, according to A Bola, Barca and Madrid are now tracking the striker ahead of potential approaches.

The report claims that Inter Milan are also admirers, suggesting that Benfica face an uphill task to keep hold of the South American despite the fact that he has been with the club for less than three months.

Nunez has a contract with the Eagles until the end of the 2024-25 campaign.
