"He [Salah] has similarities with Messi," Wenger told beIN Sports ."He must find the consistency of Messi.

"I find he’s a good finisher but Messi has the complete thing, he gives the final ball as well.

"Salah is a bit obsessed with finishing himself.

"That’s a dimension he’ll get certainly, when he grows a little bit older, to find the moment when you have to give the ball and when you have to finish.

"But I like him very much, he has huge potential. Mane as well."

Wenger also heaped praises on Roberto Firmino, claiming that the Brazilian striker sacrifices himself for the benefit of Jurgen Klopp's title-chasers.
