Liverpool: Mohamed Salah Nears Contract Extension Amid Saudi Interest
Salah has become one of Liverpool’s all-time greatest players after making 332 appearances for the Merseyside giants, scoring 204 goals and dishing out 88 assists, and winning the Premier League and Champions League.
Given that the versatile attacker has just 18 months left on his contract, it is unclear how long he will stay at Anfield.
Al-Ittihad reportedly expressed interest in signing the Egypt international during the summer, and the Saudi Pro League reportedly offered at least £150 million to get his services.
Liverpool did not have enough time to locate a suitable successor at the moment, therefore they declined to consider any bids for the 31-year-old.
Furthermore, although it is anticipated that Salah will eventually accept a contract with a Saudi Arabian club at some point in his career, nothing from his team suggested that he was in any hurry to move to the Middle East.
It has been widely speculated that he may decide to terminate his illustrious career with Liverpool and in the Premier League come summer, as he has one more year on his deal.
Nevertheless, Salah is eager to sign a new deal with Liverpool, according to FootballTransfers and Anfield Watch.
It would safeguard his future in the short term and put an end to rumours about his leaving, even though there are no details regarding the possible duration of any new deal.
According to the report, Liverpool will shift their focus to other parts of the pitch in the transfer market if Salah signs a new deal.
With four teams within six points of first place, Liverpool is presently leading the Premier League standings by three points.
With 20 starts under his belt and 14 goals and 8 assists from assists, Salah has been a constant in the top flight. He has also scored four goals in other tournaments.
Liverpool is reportedly looking for a new centre back to replace Joel Matip, who is injured, despite the purported development with Salah.
