Jonathan Northcroft told the Transfer Window Podcast that the Liverpool manager would consider selling the Egyptian next season.

Liverpool are at a point where they will struggle to find players that would immediately improve their starting lineup.

Players in the mould of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson are the type of player that the club is waiting to become available in order to take the squad to the next level.

Northcroft said: “There’s no pressure, there’s no desire at the moment to sell.

“But they are in that nice position now where if someone wants to offer Philippe Coutinho money, which probably wouldn’t be in the next year for Salah, they can present the head coach with the option, ‘what do you wanna do here?’

 

“So let’s say in a year’s time Real Madrid did materialise with £150m-£200m for Salah, the player wanted to go and Jurgen Klopp thought ‘well, that’s a good deal in terms of being able to reinvest in the squad.’ I think they’d be in a position to do that and they would have things lined up.”

While Liverpool would struggle to find a player that could make the impact that Salah has since he joined the club, turning down a £100m+ profit on a player that, in a year’s time, would be heading into his 29th year wouldn’t make sense.

Klopp and FSG reinvested the money they earned from selling Coutinho to Barcelona by signing van Dijk and if Liverpool felt that there was an advantage to be gained from selling Salah, they would be likely to do it.

Of course, it’s not something they’re taking into consideration now and given all that Salah has achieved with and for Liverpool, nobody is in a hurry to sell the ‘Egyptian King.’
