Didi Hamann reckons Liverpool should sign Bayern Munih winger Kingsley Coman if Mohamed Salah leaves Anfield in the summer.
The Egyptian forward has been linked with a move to Spain ever since a former teammate said he was ‘unhappy’ at Liverpool.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are thought to be interested in signing the 28-year-old next year.
Salah has been in exciting form this campaign, scoring 13 league goals and assisting three more in just 15 Premier League appearances.
And Hamann thinks Bayern winger Coman would be the perfect replacement if Salah left but admits the Bundesliga giants are unlikely to sell one of their best players.
“He had injury problems when he came to Munich but he got fit and scored the winner in the Champions League final.
“He’s two-footed, he’s quick, he’s very clever, great decision making and his finishing has improved a lot.
“Coman is the player. Bayern Munich aren’t interested in losing him, he’s happy.”
Hamann added: “If Salah were to move, if he wants to go, which might be quite likely, that will have a knock-on effect.
“Liverpool will have to buy somebody. Whoever they sign, that team will need to buy a replacement. Things happen quickly.”
