Liverpool legend claims PSG ‘nailed on’ to chase Mohamed Salah after ‘worrying’ statement

Salah questioned by pundit

Paris Saint-Germain are ‘nailed on’ to go after Mohamed Salah in the transfer market this summer, with the French giants set to ‘swing big’ to replace Lionel Messi and Neymar, according to Robbie Fowler.

Messi has left for Inter Miami and reports suggest PSG are looking for a buyer for Neymar, with both Manchester United and Chelsea linked with the Brazilian.

And Robbie Fowler reckons Liverpool may face a battle to hold on to Salah, with ‘a helluva scrap’ about to ensue for the Egpytian, along with fellow Premier League goalscorer Harry Kane.

With Karim Benzema leaving for Saudi Arabia, Real Madrid will also be on the lookout for a top striker, and Fowler assessed the options available to those in need.

He wrote in his Mirror column: ‘[Robert] Lewandowski looks like he’ll finish his career at Barcelona, while no way can I see [Erling] Haaland or [Kylian] Mbappe being available this summer, or any time soon. Which leaves Kane and Salah…and Neymar, if anyone is daft enough to take a punt on a player who looks like he’s had enough of football.

‘‌Four of the biggest clubs in the world who want one thing – the guarantee of goals. And two strikers in English football who have delivered them magnificently over the past seven years. There’s going to be a helluva scrap.

‘‌I only mention Salah because I’ve thought for a few months now that he could be targeted this summer, and it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if both Madrid and PSG come in for him – with the French club nailed on in my opinion to try and get him.

‘‌I don’t think Liverpool fans should be too worried, because he’s got a long contract and the club has proved in the past few years they won’t be forced into selling unless its on their own terms.

‘‌In saying that, that his statement at the end of the season declaring how devastated he was they didn’t finish in the top four, and there’s no excuse for it was a worry. To me, that didn’t sound like Mo, but his agent. And we know how HE operates.

‘‌PSG have to bring in a big, big name to replace Messi this summer, and probably Neymar too. So they’ll be swinging big – and they could have a real go at Kane too.’
