Wigan Athletic v Liverpool - Pre Season Friendly
Will Mohamed Salah leave Liverpool in summer?

The Egyptian is the best player in the Premier League this season and his performances attracted interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona. Both the clubs are ready to go toe-to-toe against each other for his signature and we are likely to see a lot of drama surrounding his transfer in the summer.

Liverpool always found it difficult to keep hold of their star players like Phillipe Coutinho, Luis Suarez, and Micheal Owen when the Spanish giants came calling for them.

There is no doubt that Mohamed Salah will massively improve the team that he joins but, at the same time, his departure will leave a huge void in the Liverpool squad.

Right on this note, here is a list of five players that the Reds can target if Salah decides to leave the club in summer.


#5 Florian Thuvian

SSC Napoli v Olympique de Marseille - UEFA Champions League
Florian Thuvian failed to impress during his spell at Newcastle United

After failing to impress during his time at St. James Park, the French international revived his career with his former club, Marseille. He is one of the best players in the Ligue 1 this season and scored 20 goals along with ten assists.

Florian Thuvian is a superb dribbler and is composed in front of the goal. He possesses great pace and loves to cut inside into good shooting positions - likened to that of Egyptian.

His brilliant performances also caught the attention of France's national team's manager, Didier Deschamps and he is now in the contention of making into the World Cup squad after being called up for the most recent friendlies against Columbia and Russia in March.

The 25-year-old would be a great replacement for the Egyptian and can follow Salah's footsteps of finding success for his second spell in the Premier League. However, his upper-body strength remains to be in question and the former Newcastle United winger needs to spend a lot of time in the gym to compete with the physicality of the league.
