The Egyptian has been on fire since joining the Reds at the beginning of the season, exceeding many of fans' expectations.
The 25-year-old's consistency throughout his debut campaign at Liverpool has impressed supporters all around the world, with Real Madrid reportedly paying close attention.
In his side's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Salah scored his 29th league goal of the season, equalling the highest single-season tally set by an African in the English top flight.
Former Chelsea striker Drogba hit that same tally in the 2009/10 campaign, but Salah still has six games to better his numbers.
The Liverpool man has hit the back of the net 37 times and assisted a further 12 strikes in 42 matches across all competitions so far in this campaign.
