Liverpool seek Salah clone

Mo Salah’s future at Anfield remains uncertain, with weekly rumours of unhappiness and a desire for the Spanish sun.

Such talk leaves a gap in the transfer rumour market for possible replacements and the latest name on the lips of any part-time hack worth his salt is Marco Asensio.

El Gol claim that Liverpool scouts quite like the look of the 25-year-old Real Madrid forward and, with the addition of a curly wig, he could be a clone of the Egyptian king. At £34.5m he would be a lot cheaper, although Paris St Germain apparently think he could be a Kylian Mbappe doppelganger.
