Firmino replacement? Liverpool-linked star endorsed by Kylian Mbappe

PSG and France star Kylian Mbappe has recently moved to praise his fellow countryman and Nice forward, Amine Gouiri.

Who is Amine Gouiri?

Amine Gouiri would join Ligue 1 side OGC Nice from Lyon in July of 2020.

The French outfit are understood to have paid around £6.3m to bring the forward in.

And, after struggling to gain a foothold in Lyon’s senior side, the 21-year-old has now cemented himself as a key figure for Nice.

All told, Gouiri has featured on 49 occasions for Nice, during which he has scored an impressive 21 goals and provided 11 assists.

Gouiri has also had a particularly impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign. So far, he has found the net five times and provided three assists in just eight Ligue 1 clashes.

Gouiri & Liverpool

Gouiri’s fine form appears to have attracted the interest of a Premier League powerhouse.

A report from Spanish outlet Fichajes claimed that Jurgen Klopp had made a direct request to the Liverpool board for the signing of Gouiri.

And now, as the Mirror write when discussing the comments from Mbappe, Jurgen Klopp has now received endorsement from the World Cup winner for Gouiri, who they describe as a Roberto Firmino replacement.

Mbappe’s comments on the striker are as follows and are likely a huge compliment to Gouiri:

“I watch nearly all the Ligue 1 matches… I am following Nice particularly closely. Gouiri is really not bad at all!”
