Mo Salah Could Become The Most Expensive Player On FPL Next Season

After breaking the record for the most FPL points in a single season, Mohamed Salah is nailed on to see his price hiked for the 2018/19 campaign.

The PFA and FWA Player of the Year accrued a ridiculous 303 points across 2017/18, besting the previous tally of Luis Suarez, who achieved 295 in a breathtaking season in 2013/14.

Priced at a relatively lowly cost of £9.0 at the start of the season following his arrival from Roma, 32-goal Salah was an absolute must-have in your FPL side and if you weren't captaining him on a regular basis then you were missing out on some serious points.

The big question on everyone's lips is: will Salah be able to replicate his heroics in his second season at Anfield?

FPL expert Mark Sutherns reckons he will be able to do the business again and reckons fans would have no issue forking out £14 million to have him in their sides coming off the back of such a productive season.

He also added that he's intrigued to see whether the Golden Boot winner will be listed as a midfielder again.

"I have never seen a Fantasy asset like it," Mark said on the FPL show.

"Can he do it again? I think he can. The question is, is he going to be a forward or a midfielder? What price is he going to be? We'll pay £14.0m probably to get him in our teams.

"It's going to be an interesting summer when the prices come out and we start building teams with Salah in them."

How much would you prepared to pay to have Salah in your ranks from the off next term?
