'Liverpool Should Sell Salah Tomorrow'

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have been urged to sell African superstar Mohamed Salah, despite the Egyptian's incredible goal record since joining the club.

The 28-year-old enjoyed yet another incredible goalscoring season for the Reds, having found the back of the net 31 times in 51 matches across all competitions.

Despite Salah's remarkable figures of 125 strikes in 203 games for Liverpool, ex-goalkeeper David James, who was on the club's books from 1992 to 1999, believes Klopp's team functions better without the former Chelsea winger.

"In my eyes, he might be second in the Golden Boot running, but I think Liverpool actually play better without Salah," the former Reds shot-stopper told Stadium Astro.

"The opportunity for Liverpool to maybe cash in on Salah… as you say, (Diogo) Jota then naturally fits into that front three, (Roberto) Firmino gets more freedom arguably.

"Then Liverpool have a new dynamic up front rather than what seems to be a reliance, or has been a reliance, on Salah's goals."

When asked if he thinks his ex-club should try to sell Salah, James stated they should aim to move him on as soon as possible.

"Yeah, tomorrow. I'd do it now," he continued.

"This is not about Mo Salah not being a good player, his goal record speaks for itself. Similar in statistics to someone like (Sergio) Aguero, where Pep Guardiola can look at Man City and not need Aguero.

"I think Liverpool's fluidity is compromised by Salah, even though he scores."
