Liverpool are coming off arguably their best season in club history, and even though they struck out on their goal of winning the English Premier League, it’s pretty safe to say that Jurgen Klopp’s tenure in charge of the Reds has been a massive success.
A major part of this newfound success has come thanks to Mo Salah’s incredible performances and goal-scoring, with the Egyptian quickly becoming one of the most influential and prolific players in the world.
However, there have been several reports pointing towards his relationship with Jurgen Klopp being kind of complicated, so that has opened the door to speculation regarding a potential exit for the Pharoah.
And now that Liverpool have finally conquered the UEFA Champions League again, French outlet le10sport claim Klopp would be more than willing of letting go of Salah in order to make room for Lille’s Nicolas Pepe.
Pepe has been turning heads since the start of the last season and it’s not a secret that he’s been a longtime Klopp target for his reds, but Salah’s presence would make his signing kind of redundant.
The forward is coming off a terrific season at Ligue 1, scoring 23 goals and 12 assists in 41 caps in all competitions for Lille, and is quickly gaining ground as one of the most promising strikers in the world.
Moreover, his ability to play near the sidelines or right in the center of the box make him a tailor-made fit for Jurgen Klopp’s deadly trio, and the fact that he’s also drawing a lot of interest from Premier League rivals makes the German want to sign him right away.
Salah, on the other hand, is not going to have much trouble finding a new home, as clubs of the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona would be more than delighted to have the chance to snub him away from Anfield in the blink of an eye, even if they may need to offload a huge sum of money for his services.
