"£400,000-A-Week? Look..." - Arsene Wenger Hits The Nail On The Head Regarding Mohamed Salah's Liverpool Contract Saga

​Arsene Wenger has raised Mohamed Salah's impeccable medical record when discussing his contract saga at Liverpool.

The Reds are actively seeking to tie him down to a new contract, but wage demands appear to be a stumbling block. 

He wants a reported £400,000-a-week to remain at Anfield, with former Arsenal manager Wenger making a strong argument for the club to secure his services. 

The 72-year-old brought up the star forward's medical record, saying he never misses a game while highlighting his pace. 

He also likened Salah to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, claiming he was the 'best player in the world' from August to the Africa Cup of Nations. 

On beIN SPORTS via @AnfieldWatch​, he explained: "£400,000-a-week? Look, every situation is different and separate. You have to look at the medical record of the player. Never misses a game. You would do it.​

"It depends as well on the physical qualities. If he’s quick, very quick, and he loses a bit, then he is still quick. If he’s already limited and slow, then you wouldn’t do it.​

"Mo Salah, you would do it. He is a mixture of Ronaldo and Messi. He can run with the ball and give the final ball. I think he has improved a lot in giving the final ball."​

​Wenger added: "From August up until the Africa Cup of Nations, he was certainly the best player in the world. I have seen him score goals this season that are exceptional. On his own as well.​

"Salah and Mane, you wouldn’t want to lose them because they become stars with Liverpool. Part of their history now."​

Salah has been ultra-prolific since returning to England's top flight following his nightmare spell at Chelsea. 

He's scored over 150 goals for Liverpool and is on course to have one of his best seasons in his career. 

The 29-year-old has an impressive 28 goals to his name this term, with his team still in three competitions.
