Saudi Arabia officials have reportedly flown to England to make one final push to sign Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah.

According to the Daily Mail, a delegation from the Middle East landed in London on Saturday to make one last surge to bring the 31-year-old to Saudi Arabia.

Al-Ittihad saw an incredible £150m offer rejected by Liverpool for Salah as the European transfer window came to a nervy end for the Anfield side.

However, with the Saudi Arabia market shutting shop on Thursday, Al-Ittihad still have time to make another move for Salah, with a £200m offer believed to be in the pipeline.

And with a delegation now in London, there’s an expectation in the air that Al-Ittihad could make their proposed world-record offer for Salah, something Liverpool might find too hard to reject.

Indeed, Liverpool have stopped at nothing to keep hold of Salah this summer, yet a bid of £200m could be too good to turn down for the Reds, even if they are unable to sign a replacement.

Deadline day was 24 hours of pure stress for Liverpool supporters, and this week could prove to be just as frustrating with the Saudi Arabia window due to shut on Thursday.

With officials from the country now in England to lure Salah to the Middle East, Liverpool have to stay strong in keeping hold of their star attacker until 2024.

Yet having rejected one bid already, it seems likely that the Reds will do that yet again later this month if Al-Ittihad return with another huge offer for the 31-year-old.
