Liverpool's stance as Saudi clubs expected to initiate contact with "incredible" Kop hero in coming weeks

Liverpool FC's stance is clear as reports emerge of an impending approach from the Saudi Pro League for Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian is out of contract in June 2025 and so, his future is the subject of constant speculation.

Earlier this month, a report from Football Insider claimed that Liverpool are "hopeful" of reaching an agreement to extend Salah's contract along with captain Virgil van Dijk and vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold.

He may be 31 but the prolific winger is showing no signs of decline. This season alone, Salah has 19 goals and 10 assists despite missing several games this year due to AFCON and a hamstring injury. He has been by far Liverpool's most reliable source of goals since joining the club in 2017.

Despite this claim, Saudi Arabia's Pro League sides are not giving up on their dream of making Salah their most high-profile signing yet. Cristiano Ronaldo may be a bigger influence but at the current stages of their respective careers, Salah is the better player.

Contact imminent: What's the transfer latest on Mohamed Salah to the Saudi Pro League?

Salah was the subject of a £150 million bid from Al-Hilal right before the close of the summer transfer window. It was rejected outright by both Liverpool and Salah himself.

Now, Italian journalist Rudy Galetti claims that Saudi clubs are planning to make contact with Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Heung-Min Son and Luka Modric in the coming weeks.

The Saudi outfits are "finalising details and priorities of the strategic plan" for the upcoming summer transfer window before they will make contact with the likes of Salah.

Holding onto Mohamed Salah is the most important next step after hiring a new manager

A lot is changing at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp and his entire backroom coaching staff will leave at the end of the season.

FSG are working hard to replace him with many hoping Xabi Alonso will be his replacement although Bayern Munich may have something to say about that.

Once the club owners have hired a replacement for Klopp, they need to make extending Salah's contract their main focus.

It's not very often that a player as special as the no.11 arrives on your doorstep and when they do, especially when they're as humble, loyal and prolific as Salah, you do everything you can to keep them happy and keep them around.

Salah was handed a £350,000/week contract extension in 2022 and so it's difficult to know how much he would ask for to extend again but are there any better right wings in the world?


How much would it cost Liverpool to replace Mohamed Salah?

Assuming we're replacing his goal output and style of play, there's only really one player in the Premier League that would be able to come close to replicating his performance on the right wing.

And that's Bukayo Saka.

According to Transfermarkt, he's worth £102 million.
