Mohamed Salah's goalscoring exploits for Liverpool this season has many pundits and fans to claim that the Egyptian is the best player in the world at present, even better than the likes of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.

Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp recently reiterated that Salah for him is the best player in the world and now Givemesport has ranked their 10 best players in the world and some of the names on the list are surprising.

Top 10 players in the world currently.

1) Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

2) Lionel Messi (PSG)

3) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

4) Kylian Mbappe (PSG)

5) Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)

6) Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

7) Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

8) Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

9) Neymar (PSG)

10) N'Golo Kante (Chelsea)

While there is no doubt that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are arguably the greatest players in football history, Salah's current form does warrant the belief that he should be counted as among the greats of the game.

However, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland have age on their side and could compete among themselves in the future for the mantle. It will be interesting to see if Salah can hold on to this title bestowed on him as the season progresses.
