WHY’: LIVERPOOL AND MANCHESTER UNITED SENT VICTOR OSIMHEN TRANSFER MESSAGE
Don Hutchison has questioned why Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool or Erk ten Hag’s Manchester United haven’t signed Napoli’s ‘world-beater’ Victor Osimhen.
The former Liverpool midfielder thinks the Reds should have signed Osimhen instead of Darwin Nunez, whilst he pointed out that, whilst the Serie A superstar thrives in Italy, those at Old Trafford were bringing Wout Weghorst to the club.
Every time the transfer window opens – whether it’s in January or the summer – it seems as though near-on every team needs a goalscorer of some sort.
Well, Osimhen is one of the top talents in Europe today and the 24-year-old could be about to help Napoli create history by winning the Serie A title for the first time in over 30 years.
From his 14 league games this season, he has 12 goals, including netting a brace and an assist as Napoli savaged strugglers Juventus recently.
Hutchison can’t stop purring about the player and he thinks he would be very much suited to Liverpool and Man United, as he told ESPN.
This is not a dig at Manchester United, but on the night that he scores two and on the night he tore Juve defenders to shreds, Manchester United spend £2.6 million on Wout Weghorst,” said Hutchison.
That tells you where United are at. That’s the sort of player, if they are doubly serious, if they want to win the league again. That is the sort of player you should be spending £150 million on. He’s a world-beater.
“They haven’t got the money. They are a billion pounds in debt and Napoli wouldn’t let him go, but maybe in the summer.
“The lad is world-class. He plays the game like no other centre forward. Why are Man United not signing him? Why are Liverpool not signing him instead of Darwin Nunez?! If I love him and you love him, then why isn’t Jurgen Klopp not signing him before Nunez? Why is ten Hag not signing him? The kid is a world-beater. He is the best number nine in world football.”
LIVERPOOL AND MAN UNITED UP FOR SALE
The Premier League heavyweights are the two biggest clubs in England – and at the same time – their American owners have put them up for sale.
It will be interesting to see what effect that has on the transfer business that is conducted.
Liverpool have already spent on Cody Gakpo, so it seems FSG are willing to put their hand in their pockets if need be, but would they really push the boat out like Chelsea have done on a few players? The answer is probably no.
With Man United bringing Weghorst to the club when they need that striker more than most, it probably tells you how far they will push the boat out this month and in the summer, that’s if the Glazers are still in charge.
