Diego Forlan has urged Benfica star Darwin Nunez to join Manchester United this summer despite interest from Arsenal.

Nunez has established himself as one of Europe’s brightest young strikers this season, scoring 34 goals, including six in the Champions League.

With Erik ten Hag arriving at the end of the season, a major makeover is expected at United this summer, with a new striker said to be among their priorities.

Arsenal are also hoping to sign a centre-forward as Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette’s contracts expire in the summer, leaving the Gunners with no senior option if both find new clubs.

While Arsenal are said to have a strong interest, Forlan believes Nunez could be an ideal fit for his former side.

“I think he’s a very good player, a good kid who’s doing really well at Benfica and enjoying a strong season,” Forlan said break the lines

“He is not only successful in the Portuguese league, but also in the Champions League, where he has scored six goals this season and helped lead Benfica to the quarter-finals.

“He’s a player with a lot of potential and could suit Manchester United. But obviously everyone needs patience, although they only get better with experience.

“He wouldn’t be a bad signing for Manchester United and it would be nice to see him there. It’s a club that gives you time where you feel comfortable and feels like you’re in a familiar place, very cozy and nice.

“It would be spectacular if he played for Manchester United.”
