Salah joined Liverpool from Serie A side Roma in the summer of 2017 for an initial £36.9million.
That fee looks like a bargain after the Egyptian has gone on to score 69 goals in his first 100 Reds appearances – a club record.
And Wenger believes it was a fine piece of business from Jurgen Klopp to manage to bring Salah to Anfield.
“I believe that Mohamed Salah is a fantastic player,” the legendary Arsenal boss said on beIN SPORTS.
Liverpool did very well, you have to give them credit for that
Arsene Wenger on Liverpool signing Mohamed Salah
“He’s blossomed at Liverpool, he was already very good in Roma.
“You know we speak about many clubs being on the market, to sniff players like that, Liverpool did very well, you have to give them credit for that.
“For me he’s a sensational player.
“He had a little dip after the World Cup and in the last few weeks now he has come back to his best.
“He’s one of the best players in the world.”
Salah is once again the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 21 goals.
However, he missed out on the PFA Team of the Year, with Arsene Wenger blaming the timing of the vote as to why.
“This team was voted when Salah was not at his best,” Wenger added.
“The players vote in February and in February he was questioned. They took him out sometimes at Liverpool.
“So at the end of the season you have some players who play very well in March, April, but the vote is done.
“And that is why he is not in the team – he deserves to be in there.
“The season is not finished and they’ve already given out the team of the year.
“You can still have players who can decide the championship or European Cup, like Salah. But it is already done.
“[Eden] Hazard is not in there, he deserves as well to be [in there].”
