We look at the stats that show just how good Mo Salah has been for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah is expected to be the subject of another big-money offer from Saudi Arabia this summer, but a quick glance at the remarkable numbers he has produced for Liverpool illustrate exactly why they simply cannot afford to lose him.

The Egyptian king is reaching the end of his peak at 31 years old and is only under contract until 2025, meaning the Reds may be tempted to accept a huge bid to fund transfers for their new manager Arne Slot.

Salah has played a crucial role in the successful Jurgen Klopp era and bringing in a new winger to replace him will be an extremely difficult task.

In this feature, we list some of the craziest stats and records that Salah has broken during his time at Anfield. Reminder: he cost just £36.9 million when he joined from Roma in 2017.

At the time of writing, Salah has scored 211 goals and made 89 assists in 347 appearances for Liverpool. He is the Reds’ all-time Premier League leading goal scorer, netting 155 times in 248 matches.

Ian Rush (346), Roger Hunt (285), Gordon Hodgson (241) and Billy Liddell (228) are the only other players to score a double century for Liverpool.
