Saudi Pro League officials have reportedly flown to Europe to push through a move to sign Mohamed Salah, with Liverpool intent on keeping hold of the winger.

According to the Daily Mail’s Lewis Steele, league CEO Saad Al Lazeez arrived in France yesterday to oversee the final signings Saudi Arabia sides will make this window from Europe, with Salah a top target.

As per the report, the Saudi Pro League plan to make a ‘serious play’ to bring the 31-year-old to the Middle East this week, though Liverpool have no intentions of letting Salah leave.

Branded as a ‘world-class’ player, the forward departing Anfield would be nothing short of disastrous, with Liverpool having zero time in the window to find a suitable replacement for Salah.

As a result, Liverpool now face the battle of their lives to keep hold of Salah, with the winger seemingly having his head turned slowly to moving to the Middle East.

Indeed, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have already swapped Merseyside for Saudi Arabia this window, and Liverpool can’t allow Salah to be the next player to make the switch.

Saudi Arabia’s influence in football is growing by the day, and for Liverpool, the Reds just can’t allow a player as valuable as Salah to leave this window.

The 31-year-old is in the prime of his career and is one of the best players in the world, with no money or time enough for Liverpool to find a replacement for Salah.

And as a result, the Reds have to reject any and all approaches for the winger from Saudi Arabia, with now not the time for Salah to make the switch.
