Liverpool Approaches Serie A Giants For This €50m Winger; Why Klopp Should Make It Happen

Liverpool have had a decent season and are just a couple of points away from a place in the Champions League next season. They are looking to improve on the squad and have been linked with some of the biggest stars in Europe and one player that is now constantly linked with a move to Anfield is Mohamed Salah.

Also linked with a move to the club in the past, Salah is currently plying his trade in Italy with AS Roma where he has been in terrific form this season. He has 17 goals and 15 assists in all competitions this season and has lifted Roma to a place in the qualifying round of the Champions League from Serie A.

A versatile player who can play as a false-9 if needed, Salah, is arguably one of the quickest wingers not just in Italy but in Europe. His blistering pace and sensational dribbling abilities are always a treat to watch and though the final ball is sometimes frustrating, he is only getting better by the year.

He is an excellent passer and though he has to work on his crossing and finishing, he is a player who can create loads of chances in the final third. He is full of energy and running, till the final whistle and this, along with his strength and ability to hold up play, has attracted Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Though not great with his defensive work, Salah is a genuine winger, just the kind of player Liverpool have been crying out for all season. The Reds have Sadio Mane in their squad, but he remains the only senior player who can play on the wing and add width to the squad.  Salah will surely add that dimension to Liverpool’s attack and can make the attack at the club stronger.

At just 24, he already has more than 50 appearances for the Egypt national team and is a star for the future. However, he is valued at €50m, which might make Klopp think twice on spending on him.

The likes of Douglas Costa are also linked with a move to Anfield this summer but Salah has been a long-term target for Liverpool and this would be the best time to get him to the club. However, his price tag is sure to make Klopp budge and he might only spend on him if he is unable to lure another effective star at a lesser price this summer.
