Liverpool needs to strengthen the right-hand side of their attack, and the Super Eagles winger could be a quality backup for Mohamed Salah.

The 23-year-old will add pace and flair to the Liverpool attack, but it remains to be seen whether he is keen to join the Premier League club without the assurance of regular first-team football.

He is unlikely to get regular game time ahead of Salah, and he will have to be content with the role of being a squad player.
