If Liverpool’s fantastic result against Barcelona proved anything, it’s that there’s a future beyond Mohamed Salah.
Granted, the Egyptian King’s been the driving factor in Jurgen Klopp’s amazing project since his arrival in 2017, yet the German coach’s impressive ability to unearth top players for his system is unrivalled right now. Think of Xherdan Shaqiri, Andy Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum. Not exactly the biggest signings at the time but look at them now.
He’s known to give rise to talented youngsters and turn them into superstars, with the likes of Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold looking great these days. So, Klopp is seemingly eager to maintain this reputation, as according to reports from Asist Analiz is pushing for Turkish young sensation Abdulkadir Omur’s signature.
The 19-year-old is nicknamed as “The Turkish Messi” for his similar style to the Argentine legend, displaying insane work on the ball.
Omur’s a treat to watch due to his exciting nature, as his peak dribbling ability and tendency to just whiz past defenders makes him a menace. The 19-year-old’s scored 4 goals, assisted 7 this season while averaging 1.6 dribbles, 1.3 shots, 1 key pass per game (stats via WhoScored).
For a youngster, his ability to take on defenders is pretty impeccable.
The Turkish sensation has all the traits to be something special and can take that giant leap forward by joining Liverpool. Indeed, Klopp can unearth his best qualities to slowly integrate him as Salah’s long-term successor. In fact, Omur’s style is quite like Salah, as he loves tricking past defenders, cutting in and aiming to score or create opportunities.
The 19-year-old just needs to tune up some aspects of his game, something Klopp can help him with. Who better, in fact? The German gaffer can turn him into a more complete destroyer of defences and allow this sizzling youngster to be his next attacking leader.
