He’d Be Fantastic’: Steve Nicol Says He Would Sign 12-goal Player for Liverpool Instead of Mbappe or Haaland

Liverpool have been making preparations for months in anticipation of Jurgen Klopp’s departure.

This transition doesn’t offer ease to the fans, players, or the club’s leadership going forward.

However, everyone involved with Liverpool is aware of the situation, enabling them to strategise for the upcoming season.

Conversely, uncertainties loom in the forward positions, particularly with Mohamed Salah’s future amid interest from Saudi Arabia.

Even if Salah remains, there’s a case for bolstering the attacking line, considering Diogo Jota’s injury concerns and the inconsistency surrounding Darwin Nunez.

When asked to choose a player for Liverpool over Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, Steve Nicol opted for a striking option: Victor Osimhen.

Nicol believes Osimhen, the Napoli superstar, would be a fantastic addition for Liverpool’s next manager, citing his potential impact on ESPN.

Last season, the 25-year-old etched his name into Napoli’s storied history, joining the ranks of their greatest, Diego Maradona, by playing a pivotal role in securing the Serie A title after a thirty-year wait.

Despite facing tougher challenges this season, Osimhen has continued to shine, netting 12 goals in 19 league matches and solidifying his standing as a rising star in European football.

“The fact that Salah is going to be going, whether it’s this year or next year,” said Nicol.

“Osimhen. I think Osimhen would be fantastic for Liverpool. The middle of the park, we have just signed Mac Allister and Szoboszlai. Endo has turned out to be incredible. He (Nunez) can start out wide.”

The club’s most crucial decision lies in appointing a manager capable of guiding them to further trophy success.

Ruben Amorim, the up-and-coming coach of Sporting Lisbon, emerges as a prominent contender to succeed Klopp.

A prompt decision on the new manager must be taken post-season to allow focus on player acquisitions.

Transitioning from the summer transfer market to a new managerial era, this summer stands pivotal in the club’s recent history, necessitating a precise approach.
