Liverpool have been linked with Benfica striker Darwin Nunez and Johnson believes it would be worth spending £100m on the Uruguay international, who would almost certainly prefer a move to Anfield over Manchester United, who are also due on June 22 -year-olds is interested.

“You’d think Nunez would go to Anfield if it’s between Liverpool and Manchester United,” Johnson said BettingOdds.com.

“If Liverpool are to pay the £100m that Benfica say they want for him then it goes against their structure and the way they do business, but that’s the way the game goes. If they don’t open up to it, others will capitalize on it.

“I like the way Liverpool do their business but they have to be a bit flexible because the other big guns will be willing to pay it whether it’s against their protocols or not.”
