Former Inter Milan player, Christian Vieri has implored Liverpool to capture Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen should Sadio Mane leave the club.
Vieri tipped the forward as potential replacement for the Senegalese who has been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer.
While Osimhen favours a Premier League switch, Napoli is not ready to sell for less than 110m Euros.
Italian publication, La Repubblica (via Napolipiu) revealed weeks ago that Manchester United made a €100m offer to Napoli in a bid to sign their star striker, Osimhen this summer.
The Italian publication had revealed this on their website sometimes last month with Osimhen having been tipped to make his departure from Napoli to an English Premier League club.
Arsenal and Newcastle United are among the English clubs interested in the striker with the Magpies possessing the financial strength to battle with Man United for Osimhen’s signature.
However, Vieri has asked Liverpool to make a move for Osimhen as Mane is leaving. He says Osimhen will be a perfect fit for Liverpool’s style of play.
“If I were Liverpool, I would go and take Osimhen from Napoli. Everyone runs in Klopp’s squad, they go a thousand miles an hour. He would be perfect,” Vieri said, according to Sport Witness.
