Arsene Wenger makes Mohamed Salah declaration as Liverpool prepare for Barcelona tie

Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Liverpool over how they signed Mohamed Salah – and labelled the forward “one of the best players in the world right now”.

Salah joined the Reds from Roma in 2017 and has gone on to thrive on Merseyside

Last season saw the Egyptian win the Premier League golden boot and fire Jurgen Klopp’s men to the Champions League final.

And he is on course to repeat that feat this term, having jumped to the top of the scoring charts with 21 goals and with the Reds meeting Barcelona in the semi-final in Europe this week.

There is also the potential to lead the side to a first Premier League title.
