Mohamed Salah’s successor…A major contender is “long time admired” West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen

Mohamed Salah's successor... A major contender is "long time admired" West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen Transfers

After a lackluster stint at Chelsea, Egyptian international Mohamed Salah stepped up to Liverpool in 2017 after a stint in Italy. Combining with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, he scored numerous goals and assists, leading the team to the Premier League title and more.

Although Egyptian King already has legendary numbers, he will turn 32 next summer. Saudi Arabia is also keen on him, and it would not be surprising if Liverpool cashes in on the player in exchange for a huge transfer fee.

The challenge facing Liverpool is to find a successor to Salah. According to The Athletic, West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen, who has long shown interest, is one of the candidates.

The 26-year-old winger has been reported as a possible successor for several years. He is athletic and has a strong presence both offensively and defensively. His threat is most evident in counter situations. 

He is likely to fit Liverpool’s preferred style of play with his quick exits, speed, straight dribble penetration, and high decision-making ability.

In total, he has scored 43 goals and provided 32 assists in 162 games for the London team. He has played more than “100” Premier League games, as well as in the Europa League and Conference League, and has achieved success not only in England, but also on the European stage.

He has reached the pinnacle of the Conference League and it is time for him to step up his game. His age seems to be a bit of a bottleneck, as he will turn 27 this December, but with his contract expiring in 2025, he may not have to pay a lot of money.

Will the day ever come when the 26-year-old forward, who has also pitched in four games for the Three Lions, will be playing at Anfield…?
