Chelsea are reportedly plotting a sensational return to Stamford Bridge for Mohamed Salah. According to a reliable Bild journalist Christian Falk, the Liverpool forward has emerged as a potential transfer target for Chelsea this summer.
The Egytpian has come a long way since his days with the Blues and is a superstar in his own right at Liverpool.
Following his recent exploits with the Merseysiders, winning the Premier League and the Champions League, Mohamed Salah now finds his future uncertain at the club. And with his current contract with the Reds expiring in 2023, there has been no news of an extension so far.
Although we don’t know whether the move will actually go through yet but with 20 goals to his name in the league this season, Mohamed Salah would be a great addition for the Pensioners.
Thus, we have taken a look at how the Blues could line up with their former signing below;
Option 1: Salah & Werner Up Front
As usual, we will have a three-man backline with Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, and Antonio Rudiger. Then there are the two wing-backs in Ben Chilwell and Cesar Azpilicueta, who can give us width and protection at the back.
In the middle of the pack, we have Jorginho and N’Golo Kante along with Mason Mount, playing behind the strikers as his creativity could be unleashed in a No.10 role.
Finally up front, would be Timo Werner, who is turning into a solid striker, and Mohamed Salah. A frontline that would definitely be a nightmare for any defense with their pace, and the precision of the Egyptian!
Option 2: Mohamed Salah at the Right-Wing Role
In addition to scoring goals, Mo Salah can also be creative, so to utilitise that aspect of his game, he may continue in his right-wing role.
On the other wing, we could have either Christian Pulisic or Kai Havertz while Timo Werner continues to lead the line. However, the defense and midfield remain more or less the same.
Moreover, Mo Salah has played on the right-wing for Liverpool, meaning he’ll know what’s expected from a Premier League Winner. Besides, this system would actually strengthen our right side even further.
