FPL transfer targets: Mohamed Salah

The Scout says the race for Golden Boot can help Liverpool star finish as FPL’s top-scoring player for a third successive season

The Scout highlights players for Fantasy Premier League managers to target with their unlimited transfers before the Gameweek 30+ deadline.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.7m

The Liverpool midfielder looks on course to become FPL’s top-scoring player for the third successive campaign.

Salah has totalled 186 points, eight clear of his nearest rival, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m).

The Egyptian has scored 16 goals and supplied a further six assists over the opening 29 Gameweeks.

Salah's top five Liverpool goals

Salah is also looking to win the Golden Boot for a third straight season. He is currently three goals behind Jamie Vardy (£9.7m).

His bid to claim that award could be a big factor in helping reduce Salah's chances of being rotated, should Jurgen Klopp’s side clinch the league early.

Liverpool's also have a less congested schedule than many of their rivals.

They are the only side in the top six who are no longer involved in European or FA Cup action. 

Top of the pile

Salah's underlying numbers strengthen his appeal for the Reds’ remaining nine matches.

His totals of 81 shots inside the penalty area and 43 shots on target are both more than any other player.

That eye for goal can ensure Salah remains a must-have for FPL managers over the run-in as he looks to finish 2019/20 on a high.
