5 clubs that should try and sign Mohamed Salah
Liverpool may be thirteen points adrift of top spot in the Premier League, but the Merseyside club can take pride in the fact that they made the signing of the season in bringing in Mohamed Salah from Roma this summer.
Following his brace in the 3-0 win over Southampton at the weekend, the Egyptian international is the top goalscorer in the Premier League, with 9 goals scored and 2 assists. Deployed more traditionally as a winger, the 25-year-old is being dubbed one of the finest forwards in the league and is likely to be on the radar of multiple clubs come January.
On Sky Sports Monday Night Football, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher outlined how Salah's fine goalscoring form will likely take the pressure of Roberto Firmino up-top, whilst he also claimed that Liverpool have "really got a top goalscorer now".
Salah would be an improvement to practically any side, but which clubs, in particular, should be looking to prize the Egyptian away from Anfield?
#5 Tottenham Hotspur
With the prolific Harry Kane spearheading an attack comprising of talent such as Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son, Tottenham have developed the reputation of having arguably the best starting eleven in the Premier League, although Manchester City fans may say otherwise.
Mauricio Pochettino has set-up a side which can play fast-paced, exciting football, meanwhile keeping sharp at the back, yet there has been something missing for several seasons now. The moment that Tottenham have lost key individuals for a game, they have folded.
In the absence of Harry Kane, previously, Spurs have had to rely on Vincent Janssen, whose woeful return of two goals in 27 appearances meant he was loaned out to Fenerbache this season.
Fernando Llorente was snapped up from Swansea City this summer, as a potentially reliable backup striker, but even the ordinarily clinical and experienced Spaniard is yet to have found the net in eight appearances for the North-London club.
If Tottenham are serious about being title contenders, more attention needs to be paid to squad depth and although his services would likely demand a hefty fee, Salah would be the man to take Tottenham to the next level.
His previous time in London was miserable, but the Egyptian now seems well-adapted to the Premier League's physicality and intensity and would be a good fit for a side like Spurs.
