David Ornstein has detailed why it is unlikely that Mohamed Salah will leave Liverpool this window amid growing transfer rumours.
Speaking on NBC’s Premier League coverage, the transfer expert revealed that Salah has not played his final game for Liverpool this weekend, with a speculated medical with Al-Ittihad not taking place.
Ornstein said: “I don’t expect this to be Mo Salah’s last game for Liverpool and I don’t expect him to be undergoing a medical any time soon.”
Given how important Salah is to Liverpool’s short-term and long-term plans, selling the winger now would make little sense for Jurgen Klopp.
With the forward also starting in Liverpool’s 2-1 win against Newcastle United, it already seems clear that Salah has made little noise behind the scenes to drum up a fuss about leaving.

Indeed, Salah leaving for Saudi Arabia would be nothing short of a disaster for the Reds, and these comments from Ornstein seem to confirm that a move isn’t as close as first reported.
Liverpool simply can’t let Salah leave this summer
Salah’s worth to Anfield is worth more than any transfer fee, and for the Reds, letting the winger go should not be an option this summer.
The attacker is one of the best forwards in the world and a player that Liverpool will find impossible to replace, even if a Saudi Arabia side was to pay a premium package for the Premier League star.
As a result, Liverpool must do all they can to keep hold of Salah this summer, with the next few days set to test their resolve to the max amid growing interest from the Middle East.
