The ambitious Pro League outfit have already lured Fabinho away from Anfield this summer, while also tying up deals for the likes of ex-Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. They are now said to have Salah in their sights.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
Arriyadiyah reports that Liverpool rejected an initial approach from Al-Ittihad, but are now relaxing that stance as more money is put on the table. The same is said to be true of Salah, who had intended to see out the 2023-24 campaign on Merseyside.
Salah has spent six memorable years at Liverpool, with his record-setting exploits for the Reds seeing 187 goals recorded through 307 appearances while helping Jurgen Klopp’s side to Premier League, Champions League, Super Cup, Club World Cup, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Community Shield honours.
