Mohamed Salah has fended off fierce competition to be crowned the best winger in world football right now ahead of fellow Liverpool star Sadio Mane.

The 28-year-old Egyptian winger failed to make his initial impact in the Premier League in 2014 during his ill-fated spell at Chelsea.

Salah was loaned out to Roma before he made the switch permanent in 2016 as the Liverpool star shone during the 2016-17 campaign with the Italian side.

The Egypt captain's excellent form caught the attention of current club Liverpool, who splashed out a then-club-record fee of £36.9m to sign him in 2017.

Salah has remained an integral part of Liverpool's squad since his arrival at Anfield, forming a superb partnership with Mane and Roberto Firmino in the Reds' front three.

The Daily Star compiled the star-studded list of wingers in the world right now, with the former Roma star beating out Bayern Munich's Serge Gnabry to the top spot.

The newspaper pointed out that Salah has performed at an "unbelievably high level for four seasons straight" and he has "made a mockery of those that have tried to stop his attacking advances."

Salah has continued to excel this season for Liverpool, despite Jurgen Klopp's men failing to defend the Premier League title.

The Liverpool winger has made 47 appearances across all competitions this season and scored an impressive 29 times and registered five assists.

Salah is still in contention for the Premier League Golden Boot as his 20-goal haul leaves him one shy of Tottenham striker Harry Kane in the goalscoring charts.
