Manchester United and Newcastle United have both made offers for Darwin Núñez, according to Uruguayan journalist Sebas Giovanelli.
Following a hugely impressive season for Benfica, the striker is one of the hottest prospects in Europe at this moment.
As of now, both English clubs are the two most likely destinations for the 22-year-old.

The race to sign Núñez is on and in pole position is both Man United and Newcastle.
The two clubs are understood to be bidding for the striker and are closest to signing him at this time.
The Red Devils are looking to bolster Erik ten Hag’s attacking options following the departure of Edinson Cavani.
Meanwhile, Newcastle will be building towards a challenge for the European spots next season.
It is understandable as to why both teams have turned their attention to adding Núñez to their squads.
Last season the forward netted 26 goals in 28 league appearances and six times in the Champions League.
However, neither club is able to offer the Uruguayan Champions League football which could well hinder their chances of actually landing him.
