Arsene Wenger names best striker in the world

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has named the best striker in the world.

Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal manager, has named Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah as the best attacking player on the planet right now.

In his first 11 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions this season, the Egyptian attacker has scored 12 goals.

The 29-year-old is one of 30 nominees for the Ballon d'Or award this year.

In Thursday night's Champions League match at the Wanda Metropolitano, Salah scored twice against Atletico Madrid.

"He's great, top class, and he's unquestionably the finest striker in the world right now because he scores goals that no one else can," Wenger said on beIN Sport.

"To dribble past people like that in such a short space, you have to play street football."

He has a lot of self-assurance and is quite creative.

"Overall, I believe he is very intelligent, because intelligence is an indication of players who are continually improving."

Salah has been named PFA Fans' Player of the Year.
