Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted in an interview with Bild that he is not worried about Mohamed Salah leaving the club.
It is safe to say that the Egyptian international has been the Reds’ standout player this season.
Salah’s previous failings at Chelsea hung over him following his arrival at Anfield from Roma last summer.
However, he has since silenced the critics by scoring 39 goals in all competitions this season.
The attacker’s prolific form has led to reports linking him with a possible move elsewhere, but Klopp has eased the speculation surrounding Salah, who is rated at £72m by Transfermarkt.
While speaking to Bild, the German coach said:
“I know that Mo feels very comfortable here,’ Klopp said. ‘He knows that our style of play suits him very well. So I am not worried about a transfer.”
After months of speculation, Philippe Coutinho departed from Liverpool in January to join Barcelona.
Numerous times over the years, players who have reached peak form for the Reds have moved on to Spain.
More often than not, the lure of Barcelona and Real Madrid is too much to turn down, but Salah would be making a mistake if he left this summer.
It has been evident in the attacker’s career that he will not thrive if not played in the correct position or system.
Like Klopp mentioned, Liverpool’s style is well suited to Salah’s attributes and he has the chance to become an Anfield legend if he commits more years of his career to the club.
With a Champions League semi-final against the 25-year-old’s former club Roma on the horizon, there is no reason why the Reds cannot go all the way and win the trophy.
Salah should stick with Liverpool for the next few seasons and then reevaluate depending on the direction of the club.
