Asia's Tech News Daily

Ligue 1 expert Adam White believes Nice forward Amine Gouiri could be a world-class player in the future.

The 21-year-old has started the season in fine form, and has been linked with a move to Liverpool.

What’s the latest news on Gouiri?

Gouiri made his breakthrough in France’s top-flight last term when he scored 12 league goals and delivered seven assists, and he has continued to impress this season.

The youngster scored four goals in as many appearances to start the campaign, including bagging a brace against Bordeaux in August.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, as last month it was reported that Liverpool have identified him as a potential replacement for Roberto Firmino.

What has White said about Gouiri?

The Get French Football News writer has claimed that Gouiri has a well-rounded skillset at a tender age, and could rise to the top of the game in the future.

Speaking about the attacker, who is valued at £31.5m by Transfermarkt, to GIVEMESPORT, White said: “I really think more people should be talking about him as a real potential world-class talent. He’s got so many attributes, can hurt you in so many ways, his close control is brilliant. His vision is brilliant, his finishing is brilliant.

“He’s still so young, he’s 21, still could do so much both in France and abroad.”

Would Gouiri be a suitable replacement for Firmino at Liverpool?

Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino has been a formidable force in recent years. The latter is 30 now, though, and his form does seem to have dipped over the past 18 months.

The Brazilian netted a hat-trick against Watford last weekend to offer a reminder of what he can bring to the Reds, but these type of performances have been been a rarity over the past season or so. 

Liverpool could be looking to add someone to their squad who can complement Salah and Mane, and Gouiri may be the player to fit this criteria.

He has shown in his time at Nice that he can score and create goals, which is just what Liverpool need if they are going to keep pace with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea over the next few years.

Firmino will not be an easy player to replace given what he has brought to Merseyside since arriving in 2015, but Gouiri is the best part of a decade younger than him. If White’s view is accurate, he could go on to flourish at the highest level, possibly at Anfield, in the years ahead, and ensure that Firmino is not missed too much when he leaves.
