Ex-England star says Liverpool must sell Mohamed Salah NOW amid talk of £100m offer

Now, well this summer's transfer window, is the perfect time for Liverpool to cash in on Mohamed Salah.

That's the view of former Tottenham Hotspur and England international goalkeeper Paul Robinson who believes the Reds risk missing out on an £100m cash injection which can be used to refresh the squad under new head coach Arne Slot.

As expected, the future of Salah will be a hot topic of speculation especially as he is about to head into the final year of his current contract on Merseyside, and has long been linked with a move to the big-money Saudi Pro League, and Al-Ittihad in particular.

If an offer was to arrive for the Egypt international during the summer transfer window then, understandably, the Reds would face the difficult decision of whether to sell their long-time talisman.

However, Robinson is of the opinion that it would make sense to let Salah depart as this summer likely represents the last opportunity for the club to receive a huge transfer fee.

"What has he got? Is it 12 months left on his contract? So from a business point of view, now is the time to let him go," Robinson said on the Football Insider podcast. "You're never going to get the £100million for him halfway through the season in January.

"If you're looking at £100m for him now and if you think that you can recruit and build a squad with the players you've got and use that money to get a replacement then this is the time.

"But if you think you've got to weigh up what the opportunity next season is, what does a Champions League finish, what does a title charge, what does an FA Cup financially mean to the club? A Champions League finish again next season and a long run in the Champions League, financially is that worth more to the club than selling Salah now?

"Obviously if you're going to get £100m now and you don't get Champions League and you don't have a long run in the Champions League, financially they'll weigh the two situations up.

"If they want to get the money for him, he goes now, it's as simple as that. But for him personally, I suspect it's not a decision about money but if he waits another 12 months that £100m then goes into his wages."
