Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah continues to put his name on the scoresheet in every game this season. Not only has he scored, but he has also made a significant contribution to assists. Saudi Arabia continues to show interest in Egyptian King, who has already joined the ranks of Anfield legends.
The Saudi Professional League, which explored the possibility of acquiring him this summer, is expected to get into full swing next summer. The player, who will turn 32 next year, could reportedly be sold if he receives a huge offer.
While various names are being discussed in the media for his replacement, former Irish international Tony Cascarino, who has played for Chelsea and Aston Villa during his career, has recommended Cameroon international Brian Mbeumo, who plays for Brentford.
“If Mohamed Salah ever leaves Liverpool, the club should go and buy Bryan Mbeumo as his replacement,”
“At only 24, his best years are ahead of him and he has all the attributes to succeed at a club of Liverpool’s stature: he is versatile, durable and counterattacks with real ferocity.”
“He has increased his goal output, with nine in the Premier League last season and six in only ten appearances this year, including the tap-in to an empty net that wrapped up Brentford’s 2-0 win away to Chelsea.”The Times
The French winger, who joined Brentford in 2019, has been a key member of the attack with 47 goals and 38 assists in 185 games for the club. He has also scored two goals in 11 games for Cameroon, and his age of 24 is also attractive.
However, it is doubtful that he is at a level that would allow him to play regularly in the Premier League or at a strong European club.
And as the successor to the Egyptian winger, his decision-making ability is a bit lacking. Therefore, it should not be the kind of development that the former Ireland international would like to see.
In any case, it is true that Liverpool will have to acquire a right winger in the near future, and their reinforcement plans will be closely watched.
