Liverpool’s prospective new arrival Mohamed Salah boasts better statistics in terms of goals and assists over the past two league seasons than the Reds current attacking trio of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Stats provided by Oulala Fantasy Football show that Salah has scored 29 times over the last two seasons in Serie A, compared to Coutinho’s 21, Mane’s 24 and Firmino’s 21.
The Egyptian also outranks the three in terms of assists, having laid on 17 goals for his team-mates. In comparison, Firmino has 14, while Coutinho and Mane have 12 and 11, respectively.
That means Salah has an impressive total of 46 goals and assists combined, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both 11 behind with 35. Philippe Coutinho’s combined total is 33.
The above stats mean that Salah provided a goal or assist every 113.6 minutes, which is considerably better than Coutinho’s 128.8. Sadio Mane made a contribution every 138.7 minutes, whilst Firmino was involved in a goal every 144.3 minutes.
Salah is expected to undergo a medical on Merseyside on Thursday, after the two clubs agreed a fee of €39m for the Egypt international.
Liverpool attempted to sign the player three years ago when he was at Basel, but were outbid by Premier League rivals Chelsea.
