Liverpool transfer news: Mohamed Salah told to quit Anfield and join Barcelona by Samuel Eto’o

The Cameroon legend believes the 'Egyptian King' can become one of the best players in the world at Camp Nou
Samuel Eto’o has urged Mohamed Salah to move to Barcelona in order to become one of the best players in the world.
The Liverpool forward proved his debut season at Anfield was not a fluke by scoring 27 goals in all competitions to help the Reds lift the Champions League trophy.
And while that night in Madrid against Tottenham Hotspur will be remembered fondly for years to come by Liverpool supporters, Eto’o believes the 27-year-old needs to return to Spain on a permanent basis.

The ‘Egyptian King’ has been linked with a move to Real Madrid but 38-year-old Eto’o, who spent five years at Barcelona from 2004, said: “Barcelona would be a better fit.
“Real gave me the opportunity to leave Africa but I know Barcelona’s style and I think it would be better for him.”
Eto’o, who was taken on as youth player by Real and made three appearances for Los Blancos, added: “If he has the chance to play in the best league of the world, which is the Spanish one, he has to sign for Barcelona.
“Mo has everything to be one of the best players in the world.”

Salah burst onto the scene with Basel and earned a move to Chelsea in 2014, but struggled to get regular game time at Stamford Bridge.
A loan move to Fiorentina followed, before he began to re-establish himself at Roma as the goals began to flow.
Jurgen Klopp convinced the Liverpool board to part with £34million in order to sign the Egypt international in 2017, and has been rewarded with 74 goals in 104 games for the club.
