Carragher: Liverpool have done very well in bringing Salah back to England.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Mohamed Salah, saying the Egyptian was the Premier League's signing of the summer.

The Merseyside club sealed the services of Salah from Serie A side Roma for a club record £34million, and since arriving at Anfield, he has already scored 10 goals.

However, Carragher reckons Salah could reach 25 goals this season if he maintains his form.

"Of all the transfers last summer, none has had more impact than Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah," Carragher wrote in his Daily Telegraph column.

"Salah scored his 10th of the current campaign in midweek. When I saw Salah score his first for the club at Watford on the opening day, I felt this was a player who would score 15 this season. I underestimated. He is on schedule to get 25.

"There has been plenty of criticism of Liverpool’s recruitment in recent years – much of it deserved. But just as with the signing of Sadio Mane in 2016, they have spent very well in bringing Salah back to England after his disappointing spell at Chelsea.

"Paying over £35 million seemed risky, but as was the case with Mane, Salah already looks to be worth more than he cost."
