With his impressive performances for Benfica in this season’s UEFA Champions League, the Uruguayan striker has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Liverpool.
It appears that strikers will once again be in high demand during the summer transfer window, with Manchester City’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland expected to dominate the headlines in the coming weeks.
Although the Premier League champions are expected to be in the market for a center-forward, they will not be alone in their pursuit. Arsenal, who are in desperate need of attacking options, as well as Manchester United and Liverpool, are also expected to be in the market.
A lot of people are talking about Darwin Nunez of Benfica, who has been impressed with his standout performances for the club this season, particularly in the Champions League. Nunez is expected to be one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe.
People who have witnessed the Uruguayan in action have no doubt been impressed, but fans of the ever-popular FIFA 22 Coins PC video game series have been left perplexed by the player’s in-game statistics and valuation, which have been revealed.
Here’s everything you need to know about Nunez’s FIFA 22 statistics, as well as the most recent real-world transfer rumors surrounding the striker:
Darwin Nunez: What is the source of his low FIFA 22 rating?
Darwin Nunez has a FIFA 22 overall rating of just 77, which isn’t even good enough to place him among the game’s top 100 strikers, let alone among the top 100 players in the world.
The player’s rating is lower than that of players such as Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins (78) and Burnley’s Chris Wood (79), who is currently playing for Newcastle United in the Premier League.
The player also has a maximum potential rating of 85, which, while significantly higher than his current rating, would still prevent him from breaking into the top ten of FIFA 22 Coins PS5‘s highest-rated forwards.
The following are some of the most important statistics terehhat Nunez begins with in FIFA 22 career mode:
- Finishing (78 points)dribbling – 72 dribble control of the ball – 7586 in terms of strength printing speed is 84 mph

It is likely that the Uruguayan’s statistics are so low because of his relatively young age as well as his goal-scoring statistics during his first season with Benfica in 2020/21, both of which were poor.
Despite the fact that he still managed 14 goals in 44 appearances, which was a more than the respectable tally for a 21-year-old at the time, his 33 goals in 38 appearances so far this season have far exceeded that total.
In a similar vein, Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic begins his FIFA 22 career mode at Fiorentina with an overall rating of 78, which is far from representative of a player who is now widely regarded as one of Europe’s most lethal hitmen.
Recently, it has been reported that the club most actively pursuing Nunez, Newcastle United, has backed out of the pursuit. This has given a boost to other clubs interested in the player, such as Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United, who have all been linked with Nunez.
Arsenal are the club with the greatest need for a new center forward, having lost Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in January and failing to sign a suitable replacement until now.
Tottenham and England captain Harry Kane is rumored to be a target for Manchester United once they announce their next permanent manager, and the Red Devils are expected to make a move for him once they announce their next permanent manager.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is not in desperate need of a new striker, but Jurgen Klopp is a fan of the player, particularly after his performances against the Reds during this season’s Champions League.
The current asking price for the striker is €60 million, which is a sum that all of the clubs linked to him should be able to meet.
