Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah's stay at Liverpool requires a vision of the future from the owners Transfers

Liverpool turned down a 150 million pound bid from Al-Ittihad, but 31-year-old forward Mohamed Salah continues to make history under Jurgen Klopp. He recently scored in the Europa League, becoming the first player in club history to achieve the feat of scoring 20 goals in seven consecutive seasons.

Other than legends Ian Rush, Billy Liddell, Gordon Hodgson, and Roger Hunt, no other player has scored more goals than the Egyptian winger, and if you take into account that he is a foreign player, you can understand why it is a tremendous number.

However, there has been no change in the player’s contract status since the last renewal, and if things continue as they are now, the former Roma winger will leave the team on a free transfer after the 2024/25 season.

For the Reds’ top brass, the scenario of leaving without a transfer window is unthinkable. They have been obsessed with Salah for some time and are preparing for offers from teams in the Saudi Arabian Pro League, which is their transfer target this summer.

According to Football Insider, the 31-year-old Salah is willing to stay at Liverpool if he can get some assurances from the board.

The same report says that Egyptian King wants to be kept informed about the club’s future plans and wants to know who is the first choice to replace Klopp, who is set to end his career at the Reds at the end of this season.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso, who was also very successful at Anfield during his playing days, is the most likely candidate, but Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Real Madrid also have their eyes on the Spaniard.

Sporting Lisbon’s Ruben Amorim and Germany’s Julian Nagelsmann are also on the list of options, which should make for a careful selection of a coach at the turning point.

Will the Liverpool ace make the decision to leave this summer, or will he agree to a new contract?
