John Arne Riise believes there is even more to come from Liverpool FC star Mohamed Salah next season.

The Reds signed the Egypt international in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old is on course to finish as the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer following a staggering return of 28 goals in 30 games.

Salah has seven Premier League games left to surpass Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez and score more than 31 goals and set a new top-flight record.

The Egypt international is closing in on Ian Rush’s record of 47 goals in a season for Liverpool FC after finding the net eight times in cup competitions this term.

Former Liverpool FC defender Riise believes Salah will be even better in his second campaign under Jurgen Klopp.

“He’s not even a typical striker either – he’s on the right wing at times,” Riise told Liverpool FC’s website.

“What Torres did was unbelievable, that season he was really on fire. Now, Mo Salah is doing even better. It’s hard to imagine such a big achievement and the season isn’t even over.

“He can still do more. I don’t think even Jürgen Klopp expected him to do that.”

Salah will be hoping to fire Liverpool FC into the Champions League semi-finals after the Reds were 5-0 aggregate winners against FC Porto in the round of 16.

Liverpool FC will take on Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Reds are in third place in the English top flight and two points adrift of bitter rivals Manchester United.
