Liverpool set sights on West Ham MF Mohamed Kudus if Mohamed Salah leaves Transfers

The chaotic departure of Egyptian international Mohamed Salah. Following last year, a Saudi Arabian club is reportedly preparing an offer, and the chances of him playing in the Saudi Professional League are increasing.

The 32-year-old Liverpool forward is not as threatening as he was in his prime, and while his passing with his left foot is impressive, his dribbling past the left-back and shooting from the cut-in seems to be becoming less accurate by the day.

With his age showing no sign of slowing down, Liverpool will have a difficult decision to make this summer. Do they offer him a contract extension or accept the offer from Saudi Arabia? At the same time, a list of players who could replace him is also being drawn up, with a variety of talented players on the shortlist.

According to Fichajes, Ghanaian midfielder Mohamed Kudus, who joined West Ham United from Ajax in last summer’s transfer window, is one of the targets, with the 23-year-old capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well as a centre forward or right winger. The midfielder is also reported as an ideal target.

In his first Premier League season, he has gradually earned a place in the starting line-up, although he started in the middle of the park in the early stages of the season. He has made 39 appearances for the London club, including in the Europa League, and has scored nine goals in 26 games for Ghana.

He is strong, physical and competitive with his centre-backs, and his left-footed shots are powerful. The player, who also played a major role at the Qatar World Cup, can break the deadlock on his own.

However, West Ham will not release their key player in one year and will demand a hefty fee as he is under contract until June 2028. In addition, Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta has also been rumoured to be on the way out and both attacking players should not be sold.
