Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen says Mohamed Salah’s signing will boost the Reds ahead of the 2017/18 English Premier League season.

Owen says the Egyptian international is a valuable addition to the squad and his pace will help manager Jurgen Klopp in their quest to challenge for trophies.

Owen netted 118 EPL goals in 216 appearances for Liverpool and has thrown his support behind Salah..

“I think Salah is a really good signing, he didn’t quite nail it at Chelsea, but he was young at the time,” said Owen to the Mirror Football.


“He’s gone away, he had a good time at Roma, he’s got outstanding pace and if you’re an attacking player with loads of pace then you’re valuable.

“They needed to bolster the squad for Champions League football, a higher standard of games, so I think it’s important that they did that.”

On the other hand, the ex-England international added that signing of Guinea international Naby Keita from RB Leipzig could benefit the Anfield-based club.

“That could be an amazing signing if that came off,” adds Owen.

The former AS Roma and Chelsea winger recently bagged his first goal in a Liverpool shirt and will be looking to continue that form during the pre-season.
