Jordan Henderson and Fabinho moved to Saudi Arabia from Liverpool. Roberto Firmino, who had left the club at the end of his contract, also headed to the country, while past clubs Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum also sought new homes in the Saudi Pro League.
While Thiago Alcantara, Alisson Becker, and Joe Gomez were also rumored to be interested, the biggest story of the day was the huge offer from Al-Ittihad for Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international.
With no time left to acquire a successor, Liverpool, who had positioned him as an important member of the team, firmly rejected the offer.
However, interest continues, and the search for a successor to Egyptian King has emerged as a high priority at Anfield, with other clubs likely to enter the fray next summer.
While various winger names are being discussed in the media, West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen has been mentioned as one of the candidates.
The fast-footed forward is a good counter-attacker, and former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman has theorized that he would fit into the team right away.
“I don’t see why not. He looked very dangerous against Liverpool on Sunday and he’s shown in the last couple of years what a good player he is. He caused Liverpool many problems but you don’t know whether they’d like to sign a bigger name if they lose Salah and when you consider the money they’d receive for Mo.”
“However, I do believe that Jarrod Bowen could easily fit in at Liverpool because he’s a hard worker, he can play on the right or down the middle and he’s very dangerous.”
“It goes without saying that it will be very difficult for Liverpool to replace Mohamed Salah considering all he’s done for the club, but Jarrod Bowen could easily fit into their side and we will see if Jürgen can work his magic and develop Jarrod even more.”Betfred
