Player's apparent arrogance could be a barrier to Liverpool transfer this summer

Liverpool with their fabulous front three have plundered goals across competitions and have become unstoppable in attack, Cotte rightfully has pointed out that the Premier League giants need to get the steel at the back to and beef up the defence which has been a problem from Klopp since him taking charge at the Anfield.

Last summer, Liverpool paid £34m to sign Salah from Roma and the Egyptian worldwide has justified the fee with 36 goals being scored in 41 appearances in all competitions.

Following a season full of excellent performances, Mohamed Salah now tops the Premier League goal scoring charts with 28 league goals, ahead of current golden boot holder Harry Kane who sits on 24 goals.

With Real Madrid talisman Ronaldo having just one more goal in all competitions with 37 and Messi now boasting 35 goals in all competitions, Salah is producing similar figures to the two players who have dominated the sport for the last decade.

Vodafone Egypt are to give their 43 million customers 11 free minutes of talk time for every goal Mo Salah scores between now and the end of the season which could cost them in excess of £100million each time he finds the back of the net.

"Salah has had a phenomenal season". If he was to have a fantastic World Cup, gets a couple of goals and plays well, and then continues again next season, why not go for the Ballon d'Or? Although I must say honestly that the level has waned in recent years.

As we have seen in recent years with Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, success on this scale has consequences and I suspect it won't be long before we see Salah being linked with a move to Real Madrid. Like many others before him, Kewell has compared his offensive style to Messi.

"He has this incredible dribbling ability, and defenders are scared of it", added Kewell, who made 139 appearances for Liverpool.

The mobile network recently released a memorable advert showing Salah as a fully acclimated Brit on Merseyside - just picture him picking up some fish and chips - and have now announced a new official tie-in with Liverpool.
