A former Italian player and director of football has claimed he is 'amazed' that the big Premier League clubs including Liverpool didn't try to sign Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa from Fulham this summer.

The 25 year old left Craven Cottage after the Londoners were relegated to the English Championship in the summer joining Napoli on a season long loan deal.

“I don’t understand how (anyone in) the Premier League didn’t notice him (Anguissa),”

“I am amazed that the two Manchester teams, Chelsea and Liverpool did not arrive on a Fulham player.”

Wijnaldum Replacement

Anguissa had been talked about in the summer as a possible replacement for Gini Wijnaldum.

The Dutch midfielder who was a key part of Liverpool's success over recent years left the club on a free transfer to move to PSG.

The Liverpool Echo had listed Anguissa as one of the viable options to replace Wijnaldum.

It would appear however that with Anguissa excelling at Napoli and the Italian club reportedly having an option to buy him, the Reds may need to look elsewhere as they look to refresh their midfield options.
