'He's the right player' -Ex-Liverpool star urges Juventus to sign Osimhen as Morata's replacementPublished: May 29, 2022
Former Liverpool, Juventus and PSG midfielder Mohamed Sissoko believes the Bianconeri should make a move for Victor Osimhen in the summer transfer window.
Juventus could be in the market for a top striker this summer after informing Alvaro Morata they will not make his loan move from Atletico Madrid permanent.
In Juventus' search for a strike partner for Dušan Vlahović, Sissoko has recommended Osimhen to the Serie A giants, saying the Napoli star fits the bill.
Napoli's asking price for the Nigerian, believed to be in excess of 100 million euros, could be the stumbling block to a potential deal, considering that Juve are not willing to pay 35 million euros for Morata despite the Spaniard having a good season.
When asked who he would take as Vlahović's strike partner if Morata were to leave, Sissoko told ilBiancoNero : "Victor Osimhen without a doubt.
"He is the right player for Juve, there are other young and strong players but Osimhen is devastating.
"I hope that Juve will have a strong player and be a champion."
Osimhen was named the best U23 player in the Serie A in the recently concluded season on the back of his spectacular goalscoring form for Napoli.
