Liverpool have been in woeful form in recent matches with the likes of Mohamed Salah struggling. Former Reds striker Robbie Fowler believes the club should potentially look at letting the Egypt international leave in the summer.

Salah has been well below his usual standards in recent games.

Liverpool’s title challenge is all but over and they are now in a fight to finish in the top four.

Speculation Salah could leave Anfield was sparked after he was substituted in the defeat to Chelsea and his agent posted a full stop on Twitter.

Fowler has reacted strongly to that and believes Liverpool can look at the example of Philippe Coutinho to make a decision with Salah.

He told the Mirror: “I’d love a situation where ­contracts mean something, where players’ loyalty is rewarded by loyalty back from the clubs and vice versa, but it just isn’t. Full stop. To quote Ramy Abbas Issa.

“Mo Salah’s agent knew what he was doing when he tweeted that full stop after the game on Thursday. I saw it and straight away I thought, “Here comes trouble”.

“He can dress it up however he wants now, but, as the agent of a high-­profile player, you know that anything you say is scrutinised forensically and ­anything cryptic like that can be interpreted in sinister ways.

“I’ve not got a clue what he meant, but it was clearly pointed.

“And you know what, if the player is agitating for a move, let him go.

“I’m not having a go at Salah. I love him to bits. But I truly believe that transfers now are largely about what players want, so the ball is in his court, not Liverpool’s.

“If he wants to go, then he should go. If a player wants to leave, we have to accept it’s in the mix.

“I’m a firm believer that if they are unhappy and want to be going, then they should be going. Jurgen Klopp has said the same, too – he doesn’t want anyone at the club who doesn’t want to be there.

“It is my belief that was his attitude with Philippe Coutinho. He agitated for a move.

“Liverpool turned it down in the summer because it didn’t suit them financially and in terms of bringing players in.

“But they did the deal in January, and used the money to buy Virgil van Dijk and Alisson.

“Klopp didn’t want Coutinho because he thought his attitude wasn’t right, and he didn’t want that poison in his camp in the end.

“So if Salah is truly ­unhappy, if he is upset he hasn’t been given a new contract or whatever, then cash in, get as much as you can for him and use the money to make tweaks with the current team.”

Salah has been a superstar for Liverpool in recent seasons but has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona in the past.

Jurgen Klopp has a decision to make on the former Chelsea winger this summer.
