Liverpool would consider a bid of £130m for “underappreciated” Mohamed Salah, according to former defender Jamie Carragher.

The Egyptian has 19 goals and eight assists in all competitions for Liverpool this season with another goal coming last night as Jurgen Klopp’s men came from behind to beat West Ham 3-2.

However, Carragher thinks Liverpool would sell Salah before the other five of their “six world-class players”.

OPINION: Liverpool needed the oomph of the Ox…

“I think Mo Salah is seen as world-class by those on the outside but with Liverpool fans, I think he is a little bit underappreciated,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“Certainly going from that first season to what he is doing now, there has been a bit of a dip. But he was never going to score another 47 goals in a season.

“Speaking to Liverpool fans and looking at social media, I think Liverpool have got six world-class players. I think they have the goalkeeper, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah.

“I think if you asked Liverpool fans whether they would take big money for the other five, they would all say no, no matter what the money.

“There is no way they would sell Alisson or Van Dijk. But if you offered them £130m for Salah, they would think about it. That is why I say he is underappreciated.”
