Early career in Cameroon

He began his career with central Cameroonian club Ngaoundéré and made his senior debut in Elite Two during the 2008–09 season. Ngaoundéré were relegated at the end of the campaign, and Salli joined Elite One side Coton Sport ahead of the 2009–10 season. His first campaign with the club was successful as Coton Sport were crowned champions of Cameroon for the tenth time, and Salli established himself in the Cameroon under-20 team. He continued to feature prominently for the club during the next campaign and his performances at the 2011 African Youth Championship saw him receive several offers from Europe. In May 2011, Salli was linked with a transfer to South African side Moroka Swallows with Kick Off reporting that he had a pre-contract agreement with them, but a transfer never materialised.

He signed a three-year contract with the club, who had been relegated to Ligue 2 at the end of the 2010–11 season. Salli made his debut for Monaco in a 0–0 draw with Boulogne on 1 August, and scored his first goal for the club three weeks later in a one-all draw with Amiens. Salli scored his fifth goal of the season in league and cup competition on 2 March 2012 in a 2–2 draw with Sedan. He finished the season with five goals in 31 appearances.
