The signing of Darwin Nunez by Liverpool has many a fan questioning who will turn out to be the more prolific addition to the Premier League out of the Uruguayan and Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.
After popping the question himself on Twitter, Jose Enrique reminded one supporter that the Norwegian international was also joining from a different league ahead of the next campaign.
Haaland is coming from another league as well mate…

The former Benfica man amassed an impressive tally of 34 goals in 41 games, with the latter finding the net on 29 occasions in 30 games (both across all competitions).

One might fairly argue that the Bundesliga is a comparatively superior division to the Primeira Liga, though that shouldn’t detract from the prospect of how good a fit Nunez could turn out to be at Anfield.
The smooth transition of Luis Diaz from FC Porto should certainly act as a reminder that the Portuguese top-flight remains a top production line when it comes to attacking talent and beyond.
Haaland himself arrives having built up a stellar reputation with Borussia Dortmund, ticking a large box for Pep Guardiola’s men who missed out on a striker last summer.
