Five successful dribbles, one goal; Tottenham-linked Mohamed Salah excels in Italy

Mohamed Salah continues to impress in Italy with Fiorentina.

Chelsea-owned winger Mohamed Salah starred for Fiorentina in their 3-0 win over Parma on Monday night, continuing his sensational loan spell in Italy.

The Egyptian wide man only joined Chelsea in January 2014, but after limited first-team opportunities under Jose Mourinho, Salah was sent out on loan to Fiorentina as a replacement for Juan Cuadrado - who in turn went to Stamford Bridge.

Before facing Parma, Salah had racked up eight goals in 23 appearances, and he made that nine in 24 with the third goal in Fiorentina's convincing win.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Salah notched three key passes, five successful dribbles as well as finding the back of the net in another superb display.

The former Basel man, 22, could be on the move again this summer, with the Daily Mirror recently reporting that Tottenham Hotspur want to sign him - but are concerned that Chelsea would refuse to sell to them given that they are a Premier League rival.

Mauricio Pochettino could stand to add at least one new winger to his side after inconsistent displays from Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela this season, and Salah's performances suggest he could be ideal for Spurs.

Salah's displays in Italy are sure to increase interest in his services, though Blues boss Mourinho may now want to give him a chance in the Chelsea side next season rather than let him go to Tottenham.
