And Ashton, convinced the 25-year-old has improved immensely from the player he was at Chelsea, has named him as his best buy of the summer.
“Mohamed Salah is the best signing of the summer," Ashton told the Premier League's official website.
"He looks a totally different player from his time at Chelsea.
“I’ve been surprised by how quick, how direct he is, and he’s a better finisher than I thought.
”He’s really added to that Liverpool side.”
Salah will be looking to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form when Liverpool host Southampton in their next English top flight encounter on November 18.
