How far can Salah go in the 100 club

Mohamed Salah currently ranks 21st in the 100 goal club. The player will now be chasing the big names. Jurgen Klopp’s transformation of the Egyptian is one of the greatest makings of a player, while Liverpool is currently one of the top European teams with a hunger for goals.

It will be no wonder that as the Reds get in goals, Mo would have the majority of them to his name. The player is an exceptional winger and an immaculate finisher. The 29-year-old footballer still has a long career left ahead of him with no plans of leaving Anfield. He will now be chasing currently serving players Romelu Lukaku, Jamie Vardy, and Harry Kane. Given his quality, Salah is sure to finish in the top 10.
