Bukayo Saka could be long-term Salah replacement - Pundit


Pundit Kevin Phillips has urged Liverpool to sign Bukayo Saka as a possible long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian is currently in contract negotiations with Liverpool and there remains optimism a deal will be agreed before his current one expires in 2023.

However, with one eye on the future, the former Sunderland striker believes Saka could one day be Salah's successor.

“I think he’ll get better and better, Saka. He’s still a young kid, he’s done a lot already in his short career," Phillips told Football Insider.

"Whether he can go to Liverpool, if that was to happen, could he emulate what Salah's done? It'd be very, very difficult for any player to do that.

"But he's certainly got the attributes and qualities that he possibly could join Liverpool and replace Salah. Let's not forget, Salah didn't tear it up early on at Chelsea.

"For Saka, he's developing all the time."
