Liverpool News Mohamed Salah SWAP DEAL demands issued to Real Madrid

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been voted as the footballer of the year by the Football Writers' Association, the latest accolade for the English Premier League's top scorer. Online in-match use limited to 75 images, no video emulation. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was placed third.

Salah, 25, has been in a superb form for his club this campaign scoring 43 goals and assisting 15 in all competitions.

Salah has also scored 11 times in 13 games in the Champions League and will hope to fire Liverpool to the final when he faces his old side Roma on Wednesday evening.

The Egypt star - the first African victor of the award - also won the Professional Footballers' Association player of the year award in April.

With both Salah and De Bruyne miles ahead of the rest, only eight other players received votes from FWA members.

"It's been the tightest call since 1968/69, when there was a dead heat between Tony Book of Manchester City and Derby's Dave Mackay", FWA chief Patrick Barclay said.

You know you've hit the big-time when you've got your own doppelganger and Mo Salah now has his own back home in Egypt.

And a special moment was shared between Salah and the Liverpool fans after they squeezed past Roma in the Champions League semi-final at the Stadio Olimpico.

Salah's contributions alone would incredibly see Liverpool sat in seventh on 53 points and with a goal difference of +4 - four places below their current position, but enough to secure European football.

Just for fun, here's how Liverpool would fare in the league table if only goals scored or assisted by Salah counted for them.

Eyebrows were raised when Liverpool chose to fork out £36million on Salah in June as he failed to make the grade at Chelsea during his previous spell in England.
