The 29-year-old is also edging closer to surpassing Didier Drogba's Premier League record of 104 goals – he is now just one strike shy of equalling that feat and becoming the joint-highest-scoring African player in EPL history. 

Salah has also won a UEFA Champions League, a UEFA Super Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, a Premier League and two Swiss Super League titles, as well as a host of individual accolades.  

With the highly-decorated Egyptian having rapidly become an icon in his home country, it has now been reported that his nation's minister of education, Tarek Shawki, is considering making a landmark decision about the player's illustrious career.

According to Egyptian news outlet KingFut, Shawki has revealed that he is open to including the 2019/20 Premier League winner's journey to the top in students' school books in the country. 

"We get a lot of recommendations to include impressive individual journeys to school books, adding Salah's story is a possibility," Shawki said. 

The ex-Roma forward is once again in high-flying form this season, having already scored nine goals in nine games across all competitions for the Reds.
