Danny Murphy insists Liverpool should NOT sell Mohamed Salah this summer.
The former Reds midfielder disagrees with Anfield legend Robbie Fowler’s suggestion that the club should concede the Premier League’s top scorer.
Despite Salah’s 17 league goals this season, Liverpool are languishing in eighth place after losing their last six home games.
The Egyptian star was replaced in the 62nd minute of a 1-0 loss to Chelsea last week, leading his agent to post a cryptic tweet amid rumors he may be leaving Merseyside.
In his column for the Sunday Mirror, Fowler, who has scored 184 goals in two periods for Liverpool, wrote: “If the player is agitating for a move let him go.
“I’m not going to Salah. love it to pieces.
“But I really believe that transfers are now largely about what the players want, so the ball is in his court, not in Liverpool’s.
“If he wants to go, then he should go. If a player wants to leave, we have to accept that he is in the mix.
“I firmly believe that if they are unhappy and want to go, then they should go.”
Fowler recalled that Liverpool cashed Philippe Coutinho, who sold Barcelona for £ 142million in 2018.
Subsequently, the Reds brought in Virgil van Dijk and Alisson as the two played a huge role in their Champions League and Premier League triumphs.
However, Murphy wants Liverpool to keep Salah, who has gone four games without scoring.
He told talkSPORT: “If you want to sell your top scorer and top scorer in the Premier League, you better have a really good plan in place.
“[You’ll need] someone who is going to come in and be able to hit some really high numbers because if you sell Mo Salah you get weaker.
“You need your best players on the pitch. So I don’t agree with that, I wouldn’t try to sell it at all.
