Al-Ittihad have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Mohamed Salah from Liverpool
Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad have a ‘concrete interest’ in signing Mohamed Salah from Liverpool this summer, according to reports.
Teams from the Middle Eastern country have been on a spending spree, paying huge wages to superstar players in order to tempt them into leaving Europe.
Al-Ittihad alone have already brought in former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, ex-Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and Liverpool’s Fabinho.
But they are not the only club in the country splashing the cash with players like Neymar joining Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Pro League this summer.
Liverpool have done business with multiple Saudi teams, selling Jordan Henderson to Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq, while Roberto Firmino joined Al-Ahli on a free transfer.
The Athletic now report that Al-Ittihad have reignited their interest in a move for Liverpool’s Salah.
It is unclear how likely a transfer would be given that Salah’s agent dismissed links to a Saudi Arabian team earlier this month.
But given the massive wages and huge transfer fees that Saudi teams are willing to pay, Liverpool could potentially be tempted into a sale if Salah wants the move.
Salah is regarded as one of the best players in the world, registering 187 goals and 80 assists across 307 games for Liverpool and is under contract until 2025.
The 31-year-old Egyptian has won a number of trophies at Anfield including the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
