A reported Arsenal goal certainly did the trick tonight against Liverpool.

Liverpool eliminated Darwin Nunez and Benfica in a fascinating 3-3 draw with Merseyside from the Champions League at Anfield.

With a 6:4 overall victory, the Reds sealed their entry into the semifinals.

Earlier on Wednesday, Fabrizio Romano reported that Nunez is definitely set to leave the Portugal team for £66million amid speculation Arsenal are already in talks to sign him.

And the Uruguay international would definitely have endeared himself to those on the red half of the north London divide.

Nunez impressed greatly, scoring one of the visitors’ three goals.

His best finish of the night, however, was an offside goal that saw the 22-year-old effortlessly chip away at a goalkeeper from Alisson’s age group.

He was clearly offside but the finish showed the lad’s class.

And here’s how commentator Ian Darke and Martin Keown reacted to the goal in real time.

Keown continued BT sport: “What an ending by the way. He showed some class there but he’s definitely offside.”

Darke added: “Nunez did the right thing – he finished it – and we’ll look at it. There are also about 50,000 witnesses for this. We didn’t need any lines [to confirm the offside].”

The problem Arsenal have is that when Nunez dazzles on a stage as big as this, a Champions League quarter-final, it reduces the likelihood of them signing him.

A lot Many big clubs will have watched with interest tonight as Nunez tormented the Liverpool back four – let alone Alisson – and he might be just a tad out of the Gunners’ reach.

There’s no doubt Arsenal need a world-class number nine this summer, but the more Nunez shines the less likely he is to head to London.
