"He'd excel," says Liverpool legend of Nigerian striker's Mo Salah's successor

Posted : 18 April 2024

Former Liverpool and Scotland right-back, Steve Nicol, suggests Victor Osimhen as a potential replacement for the aging Mo Salah at Anfield.

The 25-year-old Napoli striker recently clinched the 2023 CAF Player of the Year Award, outshining Mohamed Salah and Paris Saint-Germain’s Achraf Hakimi.

While Salah has maintained impressive numbers this season with 23 goals and 13 assists in 37 games, injuries have hindered Osimhen from replicating his past performances.

Liverpool's hopes for multiple trophies this season have dwindled, with recent defeats in the FA Cup quarter-final and EPL matches, along with a challenging UEFA Champions League fixture against Atalanta.

Though Salah has been instrumental since his arrival in 2017, rumors suggest he might depart, especially if Jurgen Klopp exits. With his contract expiring in 2025 and no renewal in sight, Liverpool faces pressure to retain him amidst interest from Saudi Arabia.

In response to a potential Salah departure, Steve Nicol advocates for Liverpool to pursue Victor Osimhen, praising his qualities and work ethic on ESPN FC.

Nicol believes Osimhen's arrival would complement Liverpool's midfield and attacking lineup, offering a dynamic presence alongside other key signings.

If Osimhen joins Liverpool, Nicol suggests Darwin Núñez may adapt to a wider role due to his exceptional work rate but inconsistent finishing, while Osimhen offers clinicality in front of goal.
