Former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince recommends ‘two’ players to replace Mohamed Salah

Former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince recommends 'two' players to replace Mohamed Salah Transfers

Having grown up in Italy after a failed spell at Chelsea, Egypt international Mohamed Salah has scored 211 goals and provided 89 assists in 349 games so far since joining in 2017, and has continued to reign supreme as the team’s ace as recently as his 30s.

However, the fact remains that a successor must be secured soon. With a number of left-handed right wingers on the list, former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince, who once made 81 appearances for Anfield, has recommended two Premier League players who could replace him.

“I think two players could replace Mohamed Salah at Liverpool,”

“With Michael Olise, he’s a very good kid, he could turn out to be a world-class player but I think he needs another year at Crystal Palace to play regular football week in and week out.”

“The two players I would pick when they are on their game are Mohammed Kudus at West Ham, I think he’s very, very good, and my favourite is Pedro Neto at Wolves. If he can just stay away from injuries, I think this player is going to be world class. I really, really do.”

“So I hope he gets a lot of time in Portugal in the Euros because he is unbelievable. If Salah does go, I’ll be going for Neto. I know the Wolves won’t like me to hear me say that being an ex-Wolves player, but those are the two that I’d be looking at.”

“He’s so important to Liverpool Football Club and has been for so many years,”

“But when Kevin De Bruyne talks about potentially going to Saudi, other players are thinking exactly the same thing. I wouldn’t be surprised if Salah did go to Saudi, but I hope he stays because he’s such a special player and because the manager wants him.”

“I remember when I went to manage Blackburn in the Premier League, after about a week I’d lost Brad Friedel the goalkeeper and David Bentley went to Tottenham, two of my best players.”

“So as a manager like someone like Arne Slot you don’t want to lose Salah straight away. So I’m sure we’ll be having that conversation. I think if he does go then you’re going to get a lot of money from him and you might bring in two or three good players who can complement everything that Salah does.”
