Liverpool have reportedly dropped their interest in signing 22-year-old Egyptian international Ibrahim Adel.

According to TeamTalk, the Reds have ended their pursuit for the Pyramids FC talent having been strongly linked with a move for Adel.

The winger is regarded as one of African football’s most exciting prospects and a player who is ready to join one of Europe’s elite having missed out on a move this summer.

And Liverpool were interested in Adel, with the forward viewed by the Anfield side as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah having been recommended by the winger himself as per 90min.

However, Liverpool are now no longer chasing Adel, who still isn’t short of Premier League interest having now emerged as a target for Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United.

Indeed, Adel could have been an interesting signing for Liverpool, yet with their interest now gone, this move could hint at a change in direction for the Reds in the market.

Hailed by Football Talent Scout as an ‘excellent’ prospect, Adel could have been quite the signing for Liverpool, especially with a player like Salah a big fan of the winger.

Yet the Anfield side dropping their interest could hint at something big on the horizon, with replacing Salah a move that Liverpool must now be considering.

With Adel seemingly gone from Liverpool’s radar, a big move could be on the cards for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with Salah’s replacement one of the biggest transfers the Reds will have to make.
