Big club, like Liverpool...Sporting Legend talks about 25-year-old Viktor Gyökeres Transfers

After scoring double-digit goals for Coventry in England until last summer, Swedish international Viktor Gyökeres sought a new home in Portugal in the summer of 2023 and joined Sporting CP, where he has so far put up impressive numbers with 20 goals and 10 assists in 24 games.

The 25-year-old striker, who is quickly gaining a reputation for his performance in Liga Bewin, was praised by former Portuguese forward Manuel Fernandes, who played for the club during his time there, and expressed his desire for him to join a prestigious club such as Liverpool or Bayern if he were to move on.

“Gyokeres is breaking records at Sporting and, honestly, I can say he is better than me,”

“Since I left Sporting, I haven’t seen a striker as complete as him. There are equals, but better players? No. He is a complete player. He both scores and scores. This quality is crucial in a striker.”

“I hope he doesn’t leave Sporting anytime soon. It would be difficult for any club to activate his release clause in the winter market. If you have to leave, let it be to a big club, like Liverpool or Bayern Munich.”

“But for now, it is clear that he is doing well at Sporting. He is a serious and focused player.”

The Swedish striker has never been reported as a target for Liverpool, and his age of 25 makes it unlikely that they will make a move for him. The priority is also a right winger who can succeed Mohamed Salah, and the center forward is well equipped.

Nevertheless, he has scored many goals in the championship, and a challenge for the Premier League via Portugal is not just a dream. Will Viktor Gyökeres ever play in the world’s best league?
