Jurgen Klopp has finally addressed the reports linking Mohamed Salah to the Saudi Pro League.
Recent information revealed that Al Ittihad is determined to make an ambitious effort to secure Salah’s signature from Liverpool.
In fact, it’s been stated that the Saudi Pro League club had previously attempted to acquire the Egyptian forward during this transfer window. Salah has been notably high on their list of priorities for this summer.
Despite earlier statements from Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, asserting the player’s commitment to Liverpool, Al Ittihad reportedly remains interested in acquiring him.
While the likes ofSportzoneclaimed on Thursday that Salah had reached an agreement on a three year deal worth some £189million with Al-Ittihad,The Athletic’s David Ornsteinreported that it is unclear at this stage if a deal for the 31-year-old will materialise.
Indeed, Salah signed a new contract at Anfield last summer, making him the highest paid player in Liverpool history, and the attacker still has two years remaining on that deal.
