Jan Aage Fjortoft has just claimed on Twitter that Mohamed Salah could leave Liverpool this week, with the winger linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

The pundit took to social media to say that the 31-year-old could be departing Anfield, with Al-Ittihad linked with a move for Salah in recent days.

Fjortoft is the second pundit this week to claim that Salah could be about to quit Liverpool for a move to the Middle East, with Richard Keys making a similar assumption via his personal website.

Interest has ramped up in recent days from Al-Ittihad in Salah, with the Saudi Arabia giants expected to launch a bid for the Egyptian international later this week.

With the English transfer window shutting on Friday, Liverpool losing Salah at this stage of the market would be a nightmare, even if the Reds were to receive a record fee for the winger.

Salah is easily one of the most important players in the Liverpool squad, with the attacker simply too valuable for the Reds to let go of even if they were subject to a £100m+ offer from Saudi Arabia.

At 31, Salah is in the prime of his career and will play a key role for the Reds this season in their quest to return to the UEFA Champions League and beyond.

And if Liverpool can survive this week, there’s no telling how far Salah can push Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the attacker showing no signs of slowing down just yet.
