Liverpool has a player who is truly exceptional, claims Gary Lineker

There has been a lot of discussion in the recent months about Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian winger’s future with Liverpool.

Salah is probably one of Jurgen Klopp’s most crucial players. He also has a strong start to the current campaign with two goals and four assists in the Premier League. Under Klopp, the Egyptian has developed into a goal scorer. But he is crucial to the Liverpool setup for reasons other than just his goals and assists. He is a club talisman and crucial to the way the squad performs.

He is also a bankable asset at the same time. Al Ittihad of Saudi Arabia made a significant push to sign him during the summer transfer window, but the Reds turned down all offers. There is a good likelihood that Saudi Arabia may make more significant offers for the Egyptian when they return in January or the following summer. Saudi Arabia has shown a great deal of interest in the Egyptian.

It would have left a huge void in the team had Salah gone. This season Liverpool has already lost senior players like Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, and Jordan Henderson.

Gary Lineker, who has been discussing the Salah situation on The Rest is Football, is adamant that Liverpool shouldn’t sell Salah. He believes that the winger is an immensely talented player who, quite simply, makes the Reds a far better club.

Lineker gave his opinion on what Liverpool should do with Salah. He said

“Would Liverpool be stupid not to sell Salah in January for £150m+ if the Saudi league came knocking again. That is an interesting one isn’t it and I’m sure they contemplated that in the summer. Fans don’t care about the money though do they? They want the best possible team, and Mo Salah is an unbelievably brilliant footballer.”

With Salah, Liverpool is facing a significant dilemma. On the one hand, he is an incredibly talented player who might end up being remembered as the greatest in the club’s history, but on the other hand, nothing lasts forever. It’s good business if you can sign a suitable successor who is a few years younger after selling a player who is 31 years old for £150 million.

Unfortunately, it is more easier said than done to sign a player of Salah’s calibre. Although the age profile makes sense, it will be challenging to adequately replace Salah unless Jurgen Klopp has a surprise up his sleeve.
