Dietmar Hamann has talked up the possibility of Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman succeeding Mohamed Salah should the Liverpool winger decide to move on next summer.

In a recent interview with Spanish publication AS, Salah refused to rule out a future transfer to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The Egyptian, 28, has been a key component in Liverpool’s recent dominance, helping his side win the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League a year later.

Salah has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal at Anfield and would command a hefty fee should potential suitors come calling in the near future.

Hamann believes the Reds would’ve already put together a list of potential replacements for their star forward and admitted tricky winger Coman is a player he’d like to see wearing his former side’s colours.

‘Two of the best wingers in the world are [Serge] Gnabry, who was at Arsenal, and Kingsley Coman who’s running riot at the moment,’ the ex-Liverpool midfielder told Stadium Astro.

‘Would they want to leave Bayern Munich? I don’t think so but you don’t know.

‘I don’t know whether there is anything in Salah giving an interview or wanting to go to Spain. If he wants to leave, Barcelona and Madrid would be interested.

‘If a player wants to leave, you’ve got to let him go. If he has the desire to leave, it’s probably pretty likely that he will leave in the summer.

‘There is some fantastic talent in Germany and France. I think they will have a list [of replacements].’

When asked which player he’d like to see move to Liverpool, Hamann replied: ‘For me, the best winger out there at the moment is Kingsley Coman.

‘He had injury problems when he came to Munich but he got fit and scored the winner in the Champions League final.

‘He’s two-footed, he’s quick, he’s very clever, great decision making and his finishing has improved an awful lot.

‘Coman is the player. Bayern Munich aren’t interested in losing him, he’s happy.

‘If Salah were to move, if he wants to go it might be quite likely, that will have a knock-on effect. Liverpool will have to buy somebody.

‘Whoever they sign, that team will need to buy a replacement. Things happen quickly.’
