With a new deal yet to be signed, Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool remains uncertain, and one forward has been identified as ‘ticking all the boxes’ to replace him.
Salah is undoubtedly a key part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad, and he is arguably the best player in the world right now, but his future remains uncertain.
Salah could leave for free at the end of next season and start discussions with clubs outside of England a year later.
The 29-year-old is believed to be demanding £300,000 per week, but has stated that he is not seeking anything ‘crazy.’ According to rumors, the player is running out of time to convince the team that he is worth the investment.
Who Would Be the Best Mohamed Salah Replacement?
Salah’s departure would force Klopp to find a replacement, and I feel West Ham United’s Jarrod Bowen is the best option.
This season, Bowen has been in excellent form for the Hammers, who are still fighting for a top-four finish.
Gareth Southgate has talked about calling him up to the next England squad since he has six goals and seven assists in the league.
Salah and Mane were both back-up forwards at the Africa Cup of Nations and had been linked with a move to Anfield earlier this month.
If Salah does not sign a new deal before the summer, Klopp may have to sell him or risk losing him for free in a year.
