Debut seasons don't get much better than what Mohamed Salah has produced at Liverpool.

Since joining the Reds last summer for £36.9 million - which seemed steep at the time - the Egyptian has bagged 36 goals in 40 appearances, not to mention a further 10 assists.

He's been nothing short of phenomenal, so much so that comparisons are now being drawn with Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Salah, 25, is now a top target for the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, which will undoubtedly concern Kopites.

But according to Basel's former sporting director, Georg Heitz, who helped propel Salah's career in Europe, he's very happy at Anfield having kept in regular contact with the winger.

"From what he's written to me and from what he has said on the phone, I think Mo is really happy at Liverpool," Heitz told the Liverpool Echo.

"I don't know Jurgen Klopp personally but from what I see they have a very good relationship. Klopp is really the right coach for him.


"Mo needs to have fun, it's not just work. For him it's a game. You need to let him believe this. Klopp has a special way of treating players."

There is also interest in Salah from Liverpool's Premier League rivals, namely league leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.

City have previously signed a top player from the Reds - Raheem Sterling moved to the Etihad in a £50 million deal three years ago - so you would have thought they might try their luck again.


However, according to the Times, neither Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola are going to bother trying to sign Salah this summer - or even in the near future.

And why? Well, apparently both Manchester managers know there's no chance of Liverpool allowing their best player to join a rival, unlike Arsenal.

It's a testament to the way Liverpool have grown in recent years that they're now able to fend off interest from England's elite without even trying.

Jurgen Klopp's men look like being title contenders next season - and the rest of the Premier League knows it.
