Tottenham Hotspur should make a move for Chelsea’s Mohamed Salah

Tottenham Hotspur should sign Mohamed Salah from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

According to, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah this summer.

The 23-year-old is on the books of Premier League champions Chelsea at the moment, but his future at Stamford Bridge is wrapped up in uncertainty.

Chelsea struggles

Salah moved to the London outfit from Swiss giants FC Basel in January 2014 amid hype and expectation.

However, the Egypt international has failed to make any significant impact at Stamford so far, and it does not look like manager Jose Mourinho fancies him as a first-team player.

The former El Mokawloon star scored two goals and created nine chances in 10 Premier League appearances in the 2013-14 season.

Salah had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 35%, and won two headers, 16 dribbles and seven tackles.

In the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign, the Egyptian could play just three Premier League matches for the Blues before being sent out on loan to Italian club Fiorentina in the January transfer window.

Fiorentina success

At Fiorentina, though, Salah was a huge success, and his performances in Serie A show that Tottenham would be wise to sign him this summer.

The winger scored six goals and created 30 chances in 16 Serie A games for Fiorentina, while having a pass accuracy of 86% and a shot accuracy of 52%.

Salah scored one goal and created 12 chances in seven Europa League matches for the Florence-based outfit.

Good move for Tottenham Hotspur

The Egyptian was one of the best signings of the 2014-15 Serie A campaign, and he is a player who will certainly improve Tottenham.

The 23-year-old has yet to prove himself in the Premier League, but that is mainly because he has not been given an extended run in the Chelsea team.

Tottenham need to sign a winger this summer. While Erik Lamela showed some promise towards the end of the 2014-15 campaign, Andros Townsend is an average player and Aaron Lennon is pretty much past his prime.

Salah is young as well, which means that in the future Spurs could sell him for a good transfer fee if they wish to.

The Egyptian will have a point to prove in the Premier League following his struggles at Chelsea, and Tottenham should make a move for him this summer.
