Mohamed Salah has emerged as PSG’s top target to replace Kylian Mbappe in the summer transfer window, according to French outlet Telefoot. In reality, the French giants have made preliminary contact with the Liverpool superstar’s representatives in order to investigate the prospect of a transfer.
Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma in the summer of 2017 and quickly established himself at Anfield, playing a key role in the Reds’ journey to the UEFA Champions League final and securing the Premier League Golden Boot in his first season. Salah was back at it the following season, as the Reds established themselves as a European powerhouse.
Salah was a key figure for Liverpool as they won their sixth European title, as well as the Premier League Golden Boot, which he shared with Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this time. The 28-year-old then helped Liverpool win the league title for the first time in the Premier League’s history.
EXCLUSIVE PSG Now on the Liverpool Striker to Replace Mbappe And, despite his ups and downs during the season, Salah remains Liverpool’s all-time leading scorer. In 195 games for the Merseyside giants, the Egyptian powerhouse has a superb tally of 122 goals and 45 assists. However, he faces an unclear future at Anfield ahead of the summer transfer deadline.
Salah could abandon Liverpool in search of greener pastures, with the club expected to face a roster change after a disappointing Premier League title defence. This has opened the way for him to make one more major leap, with Chelsea, Barcelona, and Real Madrid both involved in signing him, as well as PSG.
PSG are in a difficult situation over Kylian Mbappe’s future, who is also rumored to be a top choice for Liverpool. In reality, it’s been proposed that the Reds could be open to cashing in on Salah in order to sign Mbappe. PSG, on the other hand, is keen to ensure Mbappe’s long-term future but has yet to find a consensus on a contract extension.
As a result of their plight, they have been forced to search for potential substitutes on the market, with Salah being their top option. PSG has also contacted the Liverpool superstar’s agent over a potential summer transfer. Having said that, it would be fascinating to see if the French giants are pressured to look for a substitute for Mbappé, and if Salah is that replacement.
