Liverpool could now sign 'frightening' star who's 'one of the world's best' to replace Mohamed Salah - expert

Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed Bayern Munich forward Leroy Sane could be the “perfect replacement” for Liverpool star man Mohamed Salah.

The former Aston Villa striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 27-year-old German could be “one of the world’s best” under the right coach.

Football Insider revealed back on 14 October that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is believed to be a “huge admirer” of countryman Sane and has identified him as a top-tier potential replacement for Salah.

Sources have also told Football Insider (27 October) that Salah is increasingly likely to quit next year with Saudi Pro League officials working behind the scenes on a deal for the Liverpool star man.

Al-Ittihad wanted to sign the Egyptian in the most recent summer window and are ready to try again in 2024.

Sane has started the 2023-24 campaign in dazzling form, notching nine goals and three assists in 14 games for Bayern.

He won the Premier League twice with Man City during his spell in England – which ran between 2016 and 2020.

Agbonlahor told Football Insider’s Ewan Kingsbury: “I watched Sane for Bayern against Galatasaray, and he’s still got that frightening pace.

“He’s one of those players who could be one of the world’s best if he has the right coach, and a coach he listens to.

“Wow, he’s absolutely electric, he can finish with both feet – I think he’d be perfect for Liverpool.

“But, will Liverpool want to spend the money it will take to get him – or will they look at someone a bit younger for that price?”
