Ex-Liverpool winger urges Reds to forget Olise and instead go for 28y/o who ‘tore Arsenal apart’

Michael Olise, who has been connected to Liverpool this season, tore apart Manchester United earlier this week and led Crystal Palace to a 1-0 victory at Anfield.

A former Reds winger, though, believes that the LFC hierarchy ought to pass over the French dynamo in favor of a former Manchester City star who has already exacted revenge on us.

According to Jermaine Pennant (via DAZN), Olise is not the best option to replace Mo Salah. Leroy Sane is the kind of person you need with more experience. That seems like a fantastic signing to me.

He moves quickly and can cut to either side. He was just incredible when he performed at the Emirates. He destroyed Arsenal.

The Anfield hierarchy may believe Olise has more long-term value than the Germany international, but the Reds’ recent transfer windows have mainly included players under the age of 25 at the time of signing.

The Palace forward has a remarkably high ceiling and has averaged more than 0.5 goals per game this season (nine in 17 appearances). However, his availability is more of a concern than his experience, as he has missed 21 games due to two separate hamstring injuries this season (Transfermarkt).

It is obviously preferred to keep Salah for a year or two longer. Should the 22-year-old winger for the Eagles survive that time without suffering any serious injuries, he may then be the ideal candidate to replace whoever the
