Liverpool are very interested in signing West Ham United attacker Jarrod Bowen and could bring him in as a replacement for Mohamed Salah.
According to The Athletic, Liverpool have been watching West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen for some time now and could sign him to replace Mohamed Salah, if the 31-year-old does end up leaving the club anytime soon.
And it seems like that’s exactly what could happen…
Liverpool have a Mohamed Salah replacement in mind and it’s terrible news for West Ham
The Athletic reckon that Bowen is an option for the Reds to replace Salah, if he leaves Anfield of course.
The 31-year-old Liverpool legend has been heavily linked with a move to Saudi Arabia over the past couple of weeks (BBC), and those links will undoubtedly resurface when the transfer window reopens.
On his day, the 26-year-old is one of the very best wingers around, and Paul Merson once called him ‘outstanding’ (Football London).
However, the simple fact of the matter is that he is not on the same level as Mohamed Salah, and whether he can be classed as a suitable replacement for the Egyptian is debatable.
That’s not to say that Jurgen Klopp won’t be able to coach him into a world-class player, but as things stand right now, he’s at least one level below Salah.
If Bowen is to ever be signed by Liverpool as a replacement for Mohamed Salah, then he will need to up his numbers for West Ham to around 30 Premier League goal involvements at the very least.
Whether he’s able to do that remains to be seen though.
