According to The Mirror, when he was at Wolfsburg in 2019, the current Anfield sporting director sanctioned the sale of the Nigerian striker to Charleroi for a pittance of £3 million, which the 59-year-old later confessed was a mistake on his side.

The £90,000-per-week striker (Capology) has 65 goals in 111 games for his current club, with 26 of those goals coming in their title-winning season last season (Transfermarkt).
