Freddie Ljungberg has backed Liverpool’s decision to not sell Mohamed Salah after a £150m bid was made for the winger on deadline day.

Speaking on Viaplay, the former Arsenal superstar said Liverpool were right to not allow the forward to leave despite an obscene offer being made for Salah on Friday.

Al-Ittihad are interested in signing Salah and made a Premier League-record offer for the Liverpool forward. However, this bid was shot down by the Anfield side.

With another bid believed to be in the works, Liverpool will have to be on their toes if they’re to keep hold of Salah, with the Saudi Arabia transfer window shutting later this week on Thursday.

And one figure who thinks Liverpool have to keep hold of Salah is Ljungberg, with the pundit hopeful that the Reds reject any and all offers for the attacker.

The pundit said: “For me, it’s way too early to sell him. Salah is one of Liverpool’s most important players, and whilst the money is tempting, they’re not in a position to sell him, let alone with the market shut.”

Salah’s worth for Liverpool is nothing short of priceless, and with a second Al-Ittihad offer in the works, the Reds must do all they can to resist what could be a record-breaking bid for the winger.

The winger is one of the best players in the world and someone Liverpool will find impossible to replace with the English transfer window shut.

As a result, Liverpool need to dig their heels in, and fans will be hopeful that the Anfield side do the right thing and reject any new bids from Salah that might come their way.
