Former Chelsea striker Ray Wilkins has hailed Liverpool’s signing of Mohamed Salah as ‘a bit of a bargain’.

The Kop paid £36 million to bring the Egypt international to Anfield from Roma in the summer and he has started like a house on fire – scoring 12 goals and providing four assists in 17 appearances in all appearances for the club.

And the ex-England international believes Salah has revived his career after a failed stint at Stamford Bridge while noting he’s a bargain when compared to Michu Batshuayi.

“It’s a tad of a bargain isn’t it," Wilkins told Sky Sports.

"When you think Batshuayi cost us £33million, he doesn’t produce stuff like that.

“Salah, he left Chelsea, he went to Roma, and he played.

“You never know what these guys can do unless they’re given a run of games.

“He’s scored goals in Rome and he’s doing exactly the same at Liverpool.

“He’s almost becoming a bit of a cult hero there at Anfield.

“Some of his football has been outstanding."
