Liverpool must sell Salah to get Mbappe, Sancho, Bent insists
Liverpool have been urged by Darren Bent to consider selling Mohamed Salah if they are given the opportunity to sign either Kylian Mbappe or Jadon Sancho.
The Egyptian forward is Liverpool’s top scorer this season with 18 goals in all competitions, and looks certain to lead the club to their first-ever Premier League title in over 30 years – having played a big role in them winning the Champions League last term.
Salah has also scored three times in Liverpool’s last two matches but Bent believes that both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are more valuable to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
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 in arguably one of the best in the league. He brings players in, holds on to the ball, he’s fantastic.”
The former England international then went on to state that Klopp should not think twice about selling Salah if he can bring in a worthy replacement, such as Mbappe or Sancho.
