David Ornstein has not ruled out Mohamed Salah leaving Liverpool, with the winger linked with a move to Al-Ittihad.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, the Athletic journalist shared that the Egyptian international could make the switch to Saudi Arabia with interest high in Salah.

The 31-year-old has this week been strongly linked with a move to Al-Ittihad, though Liverpool remain intent on keeping hold of Salah for the remainder of the season.

However, with the Saudi Arabia window ending a week after the Premier League’s, there’s every chance that Al-Ittihad could move for Salah, a situation that would be disastrous for Liverpool.

Ornstein said: “Liverpool’s stance has been made abundantly clear, he’s not for sale. For all intents and purposes, he’ll keep playing for them at the weekend and then on they go.

“But you wouldn’t put it past Al-Ittihad or one of the PIF clubs to make a late surge before the window closes. Our information is not suggesting that at the moment, but never say never.”

Given some of the figures that are being floated around on how much Salah could leave for, it could be tempting for Liverpool to accept a blockbuster offer for the attacker from Saudi Arabia.

However, many figures within the club are seemingly set on keeping hold of Salah, and Liverpool can’t be tempted to accept any bid for the winger in the coming weeks.

As we know, Salah is one of Liverpool’s most important players, and the Reds must do all they can to keep hold of the attacker amid growing interest from the Middle East this week.
