Vietnamese club Ho Chi Minh City are considering signing former Liverpool striker David N'Gog as a replacement for Izzy Akinade.

Former Bray, Bohs and Waterford striker Akinade joined the V League 1 outfit last June and helped them to finish second in the division.

He won't be staying on for 2020 however, with Vietnam News reporting that Frenchman N'Gog is currently on trial with Ho Chi Minh with a view to making a permanent move.

N'Gog, who had spells with Bolton and Swansea City after his time on Merseyside, most recently plied his trade in Hungary with Budapest Honved.

Still only 30, he scored 19 times in 94 games for Liverpool.

Ho Chi Minh are also trying to snap up English forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who cmae through the ranks at Arsenal. 

Clubs in V League 1 are allowed to include no more than three overseas players, and one naturalised foreign-born Vietnamese player, in their squad. The season begins in February.
