Kvicha Kvaratskhelia has been given a vote of confidence to succeed anywhere in the Premier League, amid Liverpool's supposed interest in the talented forward.

The 23-year-old has made his mark at both club and international level, winning Serie A in 2023 and now having contributed 51 goals in 88 Napoli appearances, then more recently helping Georgia to a Euro 2024 Round-of-16 finish. This has earned him the mantle of one of the continent's brightest prospects, plus transfer links to Liverpool and other clubs.

The fire had been fuelled for a summer move when his representatives spoke out on the matter on the eve of this summer's tournament in Germany, with the No.7 later confirming a decision would be reached after his country were knocked out.

Now as the Reds watch intently for the transfer's green light, they have been told by former Premier League striker Louis Saha that the winger can come to England and be a success.

"I really like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s style. He can play everywhere in the Premier League," be began to tell Gambling Zone, adding: "They will all want to sign him, where he chooses to go will all be about style of play.

"Kvaratskhelia fits the bill perfectly with his creativity and his work-rate, he can play on both sides as well as No.10 - he can do it all. I really like his energy and how good he looked with Georgia, he is an amazing player.

"There are no clubs who will say no if they manage to get him. Yes, there is maybe a style of play that you can recognise in some teams. Whoever gets Kvaratskhelia will have an unbelievable player."

With that acclamation, Saha backs Kvaratskhelia similar to his closest relatives. The player's father recently spoke out to say he believes his son possesses even more natural talent than Liverpool's top scorer for each of the past seven years, Mohamed Salah.

New Reds head coach Arne Slot and sporting director Richard Hughes addressed the media together for the first time on Friday, explaining that once the squad had been assessed in pre-season, then 'opportunistic' ventures into the market can be made.
