Liverpool ‘identify West Ham United star as Mohamed Salah replacement’

SPORTS MOLE

Liverpool have reportedly earmarked an effervescent West Ham United attacker as a potential candidate to succeed Mohamed Salah.

Since making the switch to the Premier League from Ajax last summer, Ghana international Mohammed Kudus has lit up the Premier League under the tutelage of David Moyes.

The 23-year-old has already attracted the attention of top European teams at the 2022 World Cup, and he has contributed 13 goals and four assists from 40 games in a West Ham shirt this term.

Five of Kudus’s efforts have come in the Europa League, a competition which West Ham and Liverpool were both eliminated from in the quarter-finals, while he has found the net seven times in the top flight.

Kudus’s explosiveness down the wing has been a feature of his play this season, and he averages 3.66 successful take-ons per match, putting him in the 96th percentile for wingers in the top five European leagues.
