Saudi Arabia sides are still interested in signing Mohamed Salah, with Liverpool superstar already a target for 2024 for the likes of Al-Ittihad.
According to 90min, the matter of Salah heading to the Middle East is not yet closed after the winger’s agent came out this week to shoot down rumours that Al-Ittihad had made an offer to sign the Liverpool forward.
Ramy Abbas Issa, Salah’s agent, wrote on Twitter: “If we considered leaving LFC this year, we wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer. Mohamed remains committed to LFC.”
Saudi Arabia have already made a significant impact on Liverpool’s transfer dealings this summer with moves for Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, with Salah now next up for the Middle Eastern country.
Al-Ittihad, who signed Fabinho as well as Karim Benzema and Jota this summer, are the side who this week made a bid for Salah, though after the forward’s agent came out over a proposed move, the winger looks set to stay at Liverpool.

Indeed, whilst Salah is staying with Liverpool for one more year, the prospect of the attacker heading to Saudi Arabia next year is a real one, and the Reds will have to be prepared.
Salah to Saudi Arabia could be a likely transfer in 2024
Salah is clearly way too good to swap the Premier League and European football for one last payday in Saudi Arabia, but depending on what happens next season, a move in 2024 could be on the cards.
UEFA Champions League qualification could convince Salah to stay with Liverpool for an extra year, yet even this might not be enough to stop the winger from making the move to Saudi Arabia next summer.
A big transfer offer could tempt Liverpool enough to part with the winger, who Jordan Henderson once labelled as one of the most ‘feared’ players in all of Europe.
