Liverpool are said to be back in the hunt for Mohamed Salah, the player who snubbed the Reds for Chelsea in 2014.
The move to London didn’t go according to the plan though and after spending one and a half years on loan with Fiorentina and then Roma, the Egyptian signed a permanent deal with Giallorossi last summer.
Salah is back to playing good football again and the 24-year-old has been one of the star performers for the Italians since joining them.
Jurgen Klopp is said to be looking for wide players to add another dimension to the Reds already fearsome attack and more importantly, improve the poor squad depth.
While Salah is being seen as a possible solution to improve our attacking depth, the high-flying Egyptian won’t come cheap as according to reports in Italy, the Serie A giants have slapped a non-negotiable asking price of €50m on the attacker.
Julian Brandt of Bayer Leverkusen was being seen as a primary target but Liverpool’s interest in the German seem to have cooled off as the player is said to be looking for a guaranteed starting eleven place. Salah is rumoured to be an alternative to the Leverkusen player and is, in fact, a better option statistically.
Salah has scored 17 goals and has provided 15 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions so far this season which is far better than Brandt’s 4 goals and 9 assists in the same number of appearances.
Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another name being heavily linked with a move to Anfield and the former Southampton man will be a way cheaper option for Jurgen Klopp this summer.
Do you think Mohamed Salah is worth €50m or should Jurgen Klopp look elsewhere to improve our attacking options?
