Real Madrid have been tipped to make a surprise move for Liverpool in-form striker Mohammed Salah this summer after impressing Los Blanco’s hierarchies so far this season.
The Egyptian forward has been involved in 48 goals for the Merseyside club this term and he is on course to add to his tally after the international break.
Reports emerging from the Santiago Bernabeu revealed that the Galacticos are willing to make the former Chelsea man the world’s most expensive player so as to lure him out of Anfield stadium in the summer.
Jurgen Klopp is reluctant to let go of the Egyptian goal poacher and he is doing everything he can to prevent him from switching to Real Madrid.
It should be recalled that the German manager lost one of his best players during the winter transfer window when he allowed Phillippe Coutinho’s switch to the Camp Nou stadium, he, therefore, might lose the Egyptian player to Real Madrid in the summer.
Should Salah switch to Santiago Bernabeu this summer, there are some players who could be brought to Anfield as his replacement. Here are the top three players whom are believed to be worthy replacements for the 36-goal striker.
The PSV Eindhoven attacker is in wonderful form for the Eredivisie side this season. The Mexico international has netted 16 goals and also provides 10 assists in all competitions since the start of the season.
His dazzling runs and position, coupled with his goalscoring abilities will surely be an asset to the Merseyside club.
Having played 26 matches for Bayer Leverkusen this season, the Jamaican has scored 11 goals and assisted five goals. His ability to create chances for his teammates is another trait which has endeared him to numerous clubs who are vying for his signature. Should Salah join the Los Blancos, Liverpool need not to worry as they could get ‘another Salah’ in Leon Bailey
At age 20, Mikel is one of the regular players in Real Sociedad team this season. The Spaniard is an exciting winger whose cross into opponents box is top notch.
With nine goals and seven assists from 34 matches in all competitions this season, the youngster could be the next Mo Salah as it is obvious he has the talent to become a great player at the Merseyside club as long as there is a great tutelage and guidance from Jurgen Klopp.
