Collymore’s Take on Liverpool’s Next Move
Stan Collymore, the former striking sensation, has voiced his thoughts on Liverpool’s potential transfer moves. With rumours swirling about Mohamed Salah’s potential move to Saudi Arabia, Collymore believes that Bryan Mbeumo of Brentford could be the ideal replacement for the Egyptian star.
Liverpool’s stance remains firm on retaining Salah, their talismanic forward. However, the recent departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the Middle East indicate that every player has a price.
Mbeumo: The Premier League’s Hidden Gem
Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo has been in scintillating form, stepping up especially in the absence of Ivan Toney due to suspension. The 24-year-old forward has been a revelation, netting three goals in as many games this season and six since the year’s commencement.
Collymore’s admiration for Mbeumo is evident. He remarked, “Bryan Mbeumo stands out for me in the Premier League. His ball control, direct approach, supportive play, and physical strength make him a top-tier player. If Salah were to depart, Jurgen Klopp should undoubtedly have Mbeumo on his radar.”
The Salah Conundrum
While it’s clear that Liverpool isn’t keen on parting with Salah, the question remains: What would it take for the club to consider a sale? Speculations suggest that Salah might be in talks with Al-Ittihad.
The price tag for such a prolific player is bound to be hefty. Would £100 million suffice? Or, given the proximity to the transfer deadline, would the club hold out for a figure closer to £150 million?
Regardless of the sum, Liverpool must tread carefully. Salah’s 19 goals in the previous Premier League season were instrumental, and finding a worthy successor will be no small task.
