With Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino leaving the team, Liverpool’s front three, which boasted the strongest, is being dismantled. At this point, only Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international, remains, and the forward line is becoming dominated by players in their early 20s and midfield.
Saudi Arabia continues to show interest in Mohamed Salah and is expected to make an offer in next summer’s transfer window, and if a huge offer arrives for the winger, who will turn 32 next year, Liverpool may consider releasing him.
According to Football Insider, the possibility of Egyptian King’s departure is growing, and along with Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, the Saudi Professional League is in full swing.
“Mohamed Salah is increasingly likely to quit Liverpool next year,”
“Saudi Pro League officials are working behind the scenes to sign both him and fellow superstar Kevin De Bruyne.”
“League chiefs are eyeing their next statement of intent having already lured the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Karim Benzema to the Middle East. And a well-placed source has now told Football Insider that Salah’s move from Liverpool to Saudi Arabia is ‘expected to go through’ next year.”
Apart from Ronaldo and Neymar, Saudi Arabia has been successful in acquiring a number of star players. With ample funds, the number of players moving to Middle Eastern clubs may continue to increase in the future, and the Egyptian captain could be one of them.
To do so, Liverpool must acquire a potential successor. Can the last piece of the front three be replaced?
