LIVERPOOL could replace Mo Salah with Kingsley Coman if the Egyptian decides to leave Anfield, claims former star Dietmar Hamann.
The prolific winger hasn't ruled out a future move to LaLiga.
And Hamann, 47, believes that the Reds will have already drawn up a list of potential replacements, if Salah, 28, does decide to move to Real Madrid or Barcelona.
He told Stadium Astro: "Two of the best wingers in the world are [Serge] Gnabry, who was at Arsenal, and Kingsley Coman – he is running riot at the moment.
“Would they want to leave Bayern Munich? I don’t think so but you don’t know.
“I don’t know if there is anything in Salah giving an interview or wanting to go to Spain. If he wants to leave, Barcelona and Madrid would be interested.
“If a player wants to leave, you have to let him go. If he has the desire to leave, it’s probably likely he will in the summer.
“There is some fantastic talent in Germany and France. I think they will have a list."
And on the Frenchman specifically, Hamann added: "For me, the best winger out there at the moment is Kingsley Coman.
“He had injury problems when he came to Munich but he got fit and scored the winner in the Champions League final.
"He’s two-footed, he’s quick, he’s very clever, great decision making and his finishing has improved a lot.
“Coman is the player. Bayern Munich aren’t interested in losing him, he’s happy.
“If Salah were to move, if he wants to go that is quite likely, that will have a knock-on effect. Liverpool will have to buy somebody. Whoever they sign, that team will need to buy a replacement. Things happen quickly.”
Salah has scored 110 goals in 175 appearances since joining Liverpool in 2017.
One of these came against Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League final, while Coman went on to bag the winner a year later against Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon.
