Liverpool FC: The Gift of Salah

Many days after the pronouncement of the transfer of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, Liverpool fans started getting frustrated at the little activity done by the club in the transfer window.

But, smiles were brought to their faces as the club announced the transfer of Mohammed Salah from Roma with a reported fee of £34.3m.

Now a player better than he was at Chelsea where he started just six games, Salah is likely to be a good addition to the already-impressive attacking segment of the Liverpool teams.


Sign of good things to come

His last season’s statistics at Roma is indeed a sign of good things to come in future. Providing 13 assists in all competitions last season simply showed his already-known ability to create clear-cut chances.

In fact, he had more assists than Coutinho, Sane and Firmino; who were the regular attackers for Liverpool last season. His number of assists was even higher than that of Can, Henderson and Wijnaldum combined.


Creator and goalscorer

Jurgen Klopp-led team will definitely enjoy this creative ability of his next season. Not only can he create chances, his scoring ability is also top notch.

He scored 19 goals in all competitions last season, 5 more than Coutinho who had 14.

While he may not have the best physical ability, his silky movement out and inside the 18-yard box will prove efficient for Liverpool and dangerous for opponents next season.


Attack just got amplified

With Coutinho, Lallana, Mané, Firmino and now Salah, Liverpool’s attack will be a nightmare for defenders next season.

At just 25 years, Salah still has many years to enjoy his footballing career and Liverpool can enjoy the ”Salah gift” while it lasts.
