Expert explains what new Liverpool signing will give Jurgen Klopp
Alejandro Moreno says Mohamed Salah gives Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp another exciting option up front
Liverpool have signed a talented attacking player in Mohamed Salah, according to Alejandro Moreno.
The Reds signed the Egypt international in a reported club record deal to bolster their squad ahead of a return to the Champions League next term.
Liverpool were previously linked with Salah but the winger opted to move to Chelsea in 2014 from Swiss side Basel in an £11m deal.
However, Salah struggled to make an impression at Chelsea and was sent out on loan to Fiorentina before joining AS Roma.
The Egyptian has thrived in Rome after scoring 15 goals and making 11 assists in Serie A last term.
Salah, though, will be competing with Liverpool quartet Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane for a starting spot.
However, ESPN FC expert Moreno believes the African will provide another great attacking option for Klopp next term.
“When Mane went to the Africa Cup of Nations, it felt like everything fell apart,” Moreno said.
“They missed the creativity we had seen earlier on in the year seemed to disappear. There was no-one to turn to.
“Maybe Mohamed Salah can be that option to provide a little bit of pace.”
Liverpool signed England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke in a free transfer from Premier League champions Chelsea earlier this month.
