The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts reveal how they plan to get Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), and when they intend to make the move.

What the FPL experts say
Harry Daniels (@FPL_Harry)

Getting Salah without a Wildcard will be difficult but not impossible. I plan on trying to do it. Thinking about every decision such as Sven Botman (£4.5m) over Kieran Trippier (£6.5m), Julian Alvarez (£6.8m) in for Nicolas Jackson (£7.0m) and Alphonse Areola (£4.1m) in for Jordan Pickford (£4.4m) may help me free up money to do it.

I don't want to have to wait until I Wildcard to own Salah. If managers can get there in a move or two then he should be the player to target.

Bruno Fernandes (£8.4m) or Marcus Rashford (£8.9m) could be sacrificed to own Salah and with options like Botman, Destiny Udogie (£4.7m) and Matty Cash (£4.7m), there's enough good savings elsewhere to make it easy to afford him.

Salah has reminded all us non-owners, just what a force of nature he is in FPL. I may Wildcard this week as I've got multiple changes I want to make, and if I do I won't be making the same mistake I made in Gameweek 1. Salah will be in.

I don't have plans to get Salah until Gameweek 8 or 9, which is likely going to be the time I Wildcard.

It is very difficult to afford Salah without playing a Wildcard. But if you have say Son Heung-min (£9.1m) and Rashford, it's not so difficult. You can downgrade one of them to a budget midfielder to get the Egyptian. 

Gianni Buttice (@GianniButtice)

Even for those with loads of money in the bank, getting Salah isn't easy. With £2.1m spare I still can't reach him in one move, which is frustrating. Sure, he's playing well, but is he worth ripping your team up for? I don't think so. So whilst I would like him in my team now, he's probably more likely going to come in when I Wildcard.

I plan to get Salah after he has played Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton & Hove Albion away. Gameweek 9 onwards I will plan to have him, which is also the time I am looking to Wildcard, potentially.
