‘Salah showings will attract Barcelona and more offers’ – Liverpool legend Barnes not surprised by transfer talk

Mohamed Salah Liverpool Barcelona 2020-21

Talk of interest in Mohamed Salah from Barcelona comes as no surprise to John Barnes, with the Liverpool legend expecting “more offers” to be made for the Egyptian on the back of his remarkable consistency.

Champions League, Club World Cup and Premier League crowns have been collected, along with two Golden Boots, a PFA Player of the Year award and countless other individual honours.

The 2020-21 campaign has also been opened in style, with Salah netting a hat-trick in a 4-3 thriller with Leeds to get his season off to the perfect start.

It is efforts such as that which are sparking fresh rounds of transfer talk.

La Liga giants Barca are said to be keen on Salah, but they are far from being the only ones who would welcome a deal and Barnes believes admiring glances are to be expected.

The Liverpool great told BonusCodeBets: “Who knows what the chances arewith players leaving?

“With bigplayers and bigclubs there is alwayslots ofspeculation.You can see why the link betweenSalahand Barcelona is there - modern footballers need to go to big clubs.

“I’d like to see himstay, but of course he’s part of the future of modern football.

“Idon’t know what thelikelihoodof him going is, butif he keeps performing like he doesfor Liverpool then he’ll have yet more clubs interested inhim andwillbe receiving more offers. That will create a predicament,becauseI’d like to see him stay.”

Despite all that he has achieved at Liverpool, including hitting 97 goals through 154 appearances and breaking a number of records, there have been suggestions that Salah is underappreciated by some on Merseyside.

Barnes does not fall into that category, with a man who spent 10 years at Anfield in his playing days adding: “Everybody loves Salah.He’s probably the most lovedforward at the club.

“I loveRobertoFirminotoo, and maybe people likeSadioMane, but Salah is the numberoneformostpeople.He’s not underappreciated at all.”
