Former Reds defender Jose Enrique has claimed Liverpool should sell star player Mohamed Salah in the summer.
The now-pundit shared a report from CalcioMercato on Twitter, which suggested Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the 30-year-old and that the Merseyside outfit may be willing to sell the player for around £70m.
After fans in the comments urged Jurgen Klopp to keep hold of the Egyptian king, the 37-year-old divulged his thoughts on the idea.
“He is a legend, one of the biggest legends of LFC, and no one can take that from him,” Enrique wrote.
“But I believe maybe it’s a good time for him to move on, and for us as well.”
Time to sell Salah?
It’s fair to say Salah hasn’t had his best season in a Liverpool shirt this term.
In the Premier League thus far, the attacker has bagged seven goals and four assists. While these aren’t the best stats he’s ever accumulated, the bigger worry is his effect on the pitch.
At times this season, the 30-year-old has been largely absent during matches.
He doesn’t always appear to possess that dangerous spark in the final third, and he can sometimes struggle to keep possession of the ball.
However, to completely write Salah off would be a huge injustice.
In 284 appearances for the club, the Egypt international has bagged 173 goals and 70 assists.
He has arguably been one of Liverpool’s best players during the Klopp era, meaning the Reds would never have been as successful as they have been if it weren’t for his contributions.
Therefore, although it may be time to start planning for the future, to write Salah off now seems so wrong. He will undoubtedly recover his ‘unbelievable’ form again soon.
