Mo Salah Replacement
The latest news on Mo Salah replacement has it that, in the eventuality of this £130 million windfall materializing, Liverpool may find themselves compelled to revisit their unwavering stance on the. A contingency plan becomes imperative in the event of his departure.

According to another report, Jarrod Bowen, a winger who has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, is also being considered by Liverpool as a possible Mohamed Salah replacement.
According to Football Transfers, if the Egyptian forward leaves Anfield for a mega-deal to Saudi Arabia, the West Ham attacker is on Liverpool’s list of potential targets.
Bowen has been in outstanding form for West Ham this year and is a candidate to be re-inducted into the England team for the upcoming international games.
Bowen, who has been hailed as a “unbelievable” talent by the Liverpool manager, may be the best candidate to take Salah’s place due to his performance in the Premier League.
Salah is perhaps Liverpool’s greatest player in the Premier League era, on par with Steven Gerrard, and replacing the striker would be next to impossible.
Although Bowen is a wonderful player and has excelled with West Ham, the 26-year-old might not be able to match what Salah accomplished during his six years at the club.
Bowen might not be enough for Liverpool, who might need two players to fill the gap Salah might have created this transfer window.
