Liverpool have had a great season, and much of it has been down to Mohamed Salah. Though clearly not the only cog in Jurgen Klopp’s machine, Salah is clearly the most influential, and his impressive record of 28 league goals reflects that.
His importance to the team, then, will make a recent report from the Sun even more concerning for our resident Reds.
Perhaps most significantly, it is said that each club is convinced that Liverpool’s owners, the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), would not turn down a record-breaking offer – meaning that they clearly view a deal as realistic, provided that they spend big.
This is a real worry for Liverpool, as each club clearly does have the financial muscle to make an offer of that size. PSG are renowned for their riches, whilst both Barcelona and Real Madrid have not been afraid to break transfer records over the years.
You’ve also got the concern of temptation, with Liverpool no longer the attractive option that they once were, especially in a landscape where the aforementioned trio are amongst the Europe’s most dominant clubs.
Certainly, Klopp and co will be desperate to hold on to Salah, and at this point there is no suggestion of an imminent departure, but for Liverpool, they’re looking set for a busy summer transfer window.
Salah’s signing was met with a mixed reaction in the Transfer Tavern, likely owing to his last stint in England, but the Egyptian has now emerged as arguably the Premier League’s best player.
His influence cannot be doubted, and he’d be right at home alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.
Whether a deal happens remains to be seen, but it’s worrying for Liverpool that initial whispers are already creeping up.
