Liverpool FC face £200m fight to keep Mo Salah this summer

Philippe Coutinho was a crucial member of Liverpool's squad

Did Tottenham blow an opportunity to sign Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah?

Salah has 36 goals in all comps - more than any Liverpool player in their debut season.

The Liverpool midfielder is out of contract this summer and has strung the club along for many months, clearly enjoying his situation of being able to choose where he wants to go at the end of the season.

Liverpool have already lost one star to La Liga's two powerhouse clubs - Philippe Coutinho joined Barca in January - and former Arsenal forward Wright feels the Reds could be forced to part with a second.

Liverpool have no intention of selling Mohamed Salah this summer and will robustly turn away any unwanted interest in their talisman. Instead, Klopp preferred a move for German winger Julian Brandt.

According to TransferMarketWeb, Liverpool have set an asking price of £150m for Salah.

His latest exploits saw him score four goals in Liverpool's crushing 5-0 win over Watford last week, with Hornets boss Javi Gracia later comparing his individual brilliance and ability to undo a gameplan to that of Barcelona's Messi.

Despite his age, he also has 13 caps to his name; scoring once.

All you can hope is that Salah has a different mentality to the players who left Anfield in years gone by, yet you wonder whether anyone in that Liverpool squad has big loyalty to a club that they have no emotional connection with.

The Express reported in 2014 that Tottenham were eyeing up a move for Salah at just £13 million.

But, regardless of whether Klopp eventually manages to secure a deal for Brandt, it can be said in great confidence that missing out on him last summer was the best thing that could have happened.
