Liverpool striker Salah tipped to surpass Drogba as Premier League's greatest African

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is being tipped to become the greatest African player the Premier League has seen.

Arsenal's former Cameroon defender Lauren says Salah has the potential to surpass the status of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

"Salah could be the best – he's still young and he's playing with such a great team in Liverpool," Lauren told Omnisport.

“He could be, why not? We've had some great players like (Tony) Yeboah and (Andre) Ayew. Drogba did a lot.

“To be honest, I have some doubts that he can pass Drogba. He was one of the best African players in the Premier League.

“To pass that is difficult, but we'll see. Time will tell us, but at the moment I'm sticking with Drogba. I think he's one of the best African players to have played in the Premier League."
