The Spanish winger has been told he can leave Anfield by Rafa Benitez and he has targeted a return to La Liga.
Vigo have shown interest, but Benitez had said that they had not come up with a suitable offer for the former Real Madrid man.
Celta president Horacio Gomez says that Nunez has been their number one target for a new right winger, and believes a deal is close to being agreed.
"We are close to sealing the signing," said Gomez.
"We want to make our team competitive and for that reason we are carrying out important changes for the present and the future."
While the signature of Nunez is looking close, Vigo are also looking to sign Manchester United midfielder Kleberson.
Sir Alex Ferguson has already confirmed that Celta have made a bid for the Brazilian international, and talks are continuing over a move to Spain.
