Former Juventus midfielder, Mohamed Sissoko believes that Victor Osimhen is the perfect replacement for Alvaro Morata in the old Lady squad.

Spanish striker, Alvaro Morata is on loan from Athletico Madrid but Juventus are not willing to trigger his €35million buy option. The Spaniard is on his second stint at the club after seeing the club to the Champions League final loss in 2015 against Barcelona. Morata scored 12 goals and made 9 assists in 48 competitive games this season for the Old lady this season.

When asked who the ideal replacement for Morata will be, Mohammed Sissoko believes the Super Eagles forward is a slot in replacement for Alvaro Morata.

Sissoko told, “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 that he will be a champion.”

Osimhen, 23, finished the season with 18 goals and 6 assists in 32 games this season. The Super Eagles forward also edged out Juventus star striker, Dusan Vlahovic who was signed for a record fee from Florentina earlier this year, to win Seria A Young Player of the Year after scoring 14 goals.

The Bianconeri are expected to pay more than the €75million Napoli paid Lille for him in 2020.
