Liverpool should consider selling Mohamed Salah if they have the opportunity to sign Jadon Sancho or Kylian Mbappe, according to Darren Bent.
The 27-year-old Salah is top scorer this season with 18 goals in all competitions.
Bent told talkSPORT: “Listen, we know he scores a lot of goals and he is a top, top player. Two Golden Boots, Player of the Season, Champions League winner, about to be a Premier League winner, the accolades are there. But when you look at his general play to say someone like Mane, I’d have to say Mane’s been better than him.
“He may score more goals than Mane, but Mane’s work-rate for the team, he’s unselfish, always looks for others first, he’ll get his fair share of goals. So you can’t sell Mane, he’s so important. Firmino, we know he doesn’t score that many goals, but he’s the glue, he links it all together. His hold-up play is arguably one of the best in the league. He brings players in, holds on to the ball, he’s fantastic.
“So you look at Salah, yes he does score all these goals, but is he really complementing Mane and Firmino or is he looking for more goals? I’ve seen certain situations this season where he should pass it, but he’s shot, and you can see the frustration starting to build. It’s not about selling him and getting £100million and that’s it, but if you can replace him with a Mbappe or someone like a Jadon Sancho, I think it’s worth thinking about.”
