Liverpool

Liverpool’s reported interest in 24-year-old midfielder makes a lot of sense – here’s why

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see a few players sign for their club this summer…

The Reds have done well this year, but with the return of the Champions League on the horizon, a few big changes will be needed for Jurgen Klopp’s side to genuinely compete at the top.

Most of the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern, then, were delighted when they heard reports linking Mo Salah with a move to Anfield. Indeed, whilst the move has generated a bit of mixed reaction amongst a small group of supporters in the pub, our landlord thinks that Salah could be just perfect for Liverpool.

Of course, the main fear amongst fans will draw back to Salah’s time at Chelsea. He struggled during his last spell in the Premier League, and so they are right to doubt him. However, it must be noted that his poor form during that spell can be put down to several factors. Most notably, he wasn’t really given a chance at the club. It is very hard for a player to improve when he is only being given minimal game, and he has proven that since he moved away from the club.

In Italy, with both Fiorentina and Roma, Salah has turned his career around. Having been given an actual chance, he has impressed in front of goal and as an attacker, delivering a fantastic record of 15 goals and 11 assists over the 2016/17 season.

From Liverpool’s perspective, their reliance on Sadio Mane has become a real problem this season, and that is something that Jurgen Klopp should look to solve. Salah, then, could be a great option, offering an alternative offensive option for the Reds.
