Jurgen Klopp insists Mohamed Salah is 'super committed' to Liverpool despite the prospect of a £200m ($252m) bid from Saudi side Al-Ittihad.
  • Huge bid imminent
  • Klopp adamant Salah not for sale
  • Saudi clubs can sign until September 7

WHAT HAPPENED? The Liverpool boss remains adamant that the Egyptian forward is not for sale despite a bid reported to be in the region of £200m from the Saudi Pro league club. Klopp also declared that he has no concerns over Salah's focus over the coming weeks.

WHAT THEY SAID: Klopp told newspaper journalists ahead of Sunday's fixture against Aston Villa: "Mo is super committed, really in training fully there. And in the leadership meetings this week he was fully in. I have to deal with facts, and my fact is: ‘All good, we are here and everything is fine' ".

THE BIGGER PICTURE: With the Saudi transfer window open for another week, there may well be a testing period to come for both the player and the club. Al-Ittihad's bid is likely to prove tempting for 31-year-old Salah in terms of salary.
