Liverpool would reflect onconsideration on an offer of £130 million ($168m) for Mohamed Salah, claims Jamie Carragher, with the Egyptian forward stated to be “underappreciated” at Anfield in spite of the amazing numbers he posts.
The prolific 27-year-old netted 44 times in his debut season on Merseyside , before recording a in addition 27 efforts last term.
He is up to 19 throughout all competitions in the present day campaign, having netted in Monday’s 3-2 win over West Ham , and continues to chip in with a wholesome quantity of assists.
Carragher, though, believes that many would happily part with Salah for the proper price, telling Sky Sports: “I suppose Mo Salah is considered as world-class by using those on the outdoor but with Liverpool fans, I assume he is a little bit underappreciated.
“Certainly going from that first season to what he is doing now, there has been a bit of a dip. But he was in no way going to score another forty seven goals in a season.
“Speaking to Liverpool followers and looking at social media, I assume Liverpool have acquired six world-class players. I assume they have the goalkeeper, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah.
“I suppose if you asked Liverpool followers whether or not they would take large money for the other five, they would all say no, no matter what the money.
“There is no way they would sell Alisson or Van Dijk. But if you presented them £130m for Salah, they would assume about it. That is why I say he is underappreciated.”
Lionel Messi is the solely man to sit above Salah when it comes to goal involvements considering that the summer of 2017, but Liverpool are being linked with big-money strikes for the likes of Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
“Salah is going to lose the ball however he is also going to score goals,” added Carragher.
“Salah gets a lot of assists too. Only Lionel Messi has extra goals and assists than Salah in Europe’s top five leagues since he joined Liverpool.
“The big thing I like about him is that he is never injured. You see Liverpool play and he is there week in and week out. Ninety-seven appearances out of 102 (now ninety eight out of 103).
“If you look at minutes per goal, there would possibly be others. But if I am a supervisor I choose any individual who is playing week in and week out, never misses a sport and delivers.
“There is talk of Kylian Mbappe being the dream for Liverpool. Maybe that is not realistic.
“There is also talk of Jadon Sancho. That probably is realistic for each and every top team in the Premier League. Mbappe is world-class, maybe the man to overtake Messi and Ronaldo. Sancho is on the verge of being world-class.
“But I think it would be so hard for them, in their first two-and-a-half years at Liverpool, to get these numbers. That is why Liverpool want to be careful. Look at the numbers. Only Lionel Messi in European football is above this man.
“Liverpool need an attacking player to come in due to the fact Salah is perhaps going to go to the Olympics and then the African Nations Cup, Mane the same, and bringing Divock Origi on in Madrid is no longer enough for the European champions.
“But no way in the world must they be even thinking about looking at moving this player on.”
