11 incredible stats from Mohamed Salah's debut Liverpool season

Liverpool news Real Madrid Mohamed Salah

GETTYLiverpool news Jurgen Klopp has opened up on Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid talk

Against Bournemouth on Saturday, Salah scored his 30th goal of the season in a 2-0 win.

He is just four goals shy of the Premier League records held by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer of 34 and could possibly eclipse this tally in the coming weeks.

Salah's extraordinary debut season continued as he helped the Merseysiders into the Champions League semifinals, and the feelgood factor shows no sign of waning as Klopp shrugged off concerns the 25-year-old will be the subject of a massive transfer bid this off-season. "But we can not force it; so, pass, shoot, pass, shoot, that's the normal thing to do", Klopp added. It's good and impressive - what a number, wow! What a number. Wow!

"He didn't look today like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".

Salah's personal duel to deny Harry Kane a third successive golden boot was brought into sharper focus after the Tottenham forward was controversially awarded Spurs' second goal against Stoke last weekend.

Salah, who is on course to win the Premier League's Golden Boot, is also one of the favourites to become PFA Player of Year.

Asked about his leading scorer possibly being distracted by the prospect of that personal accolade, Klopp added: "We need his greed, we need him to want to score". Sometimes it's so obvious that he knows it.

"We don't want change all the time".

Salah got onto the end of a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross to double his side's lead in the 69th minute, following Sadio Mane's opener, to become the highest scoring African in a single English top-flight season.

"It feels like a great opportunity to chase the joy we were not able to experience so many years ago, but of course it will be hard because Liverpool are an extremely strong side", he said on the club's official Twitter page.
