Arsenal manager has piled on the praise for ahead of Arsenal’s game with Liverpool, as well as revealing that he almost signed the Egyptian for PSG.

With Salah being the primary danger man for Liverpool, he has been spoken about by Arsenal manager Unai Emery ahead of their tie this coming weekend.

The Spaniard has revealed that in his previous job as manager of Paris Saint Germain, they were close to signing Salah before their doubt prevented it from coming to fruition.

Emery said, “We spoke about the possibility to sign Salah to PSG when he was playing at Roma. We had some doubts, and then he signed for Liverpool and these doubts he has broken at Liverpool.”

“The doubts were as to how he can take the performance into one big team. For example like PSG in Paris. But today I can say to you, if you are speaking about the five top players in the world, one is Salah.”

The match at Anfield takes place on Saturday 29th of December at 7:30PM Egyptian time.
