Liverpool are fully expected to sell Mohamed Salah in the January transfer window after a summer of immense interest from Saudi Arabia side Al-Ittihad.

Speaking to the Athletic, an unnamed agent claimed that the Reds will find it hard to reject a massive offer from the Middle East for Salah in 2024 having turned down bids worth £125m in the summer.

The agent said: “He’ll have six months less on his contract (in January) and it becomes harder for Liverpool to turn down the money the Saudis will be offering.”

Saudi Arabia are unlikely to let Salah go without a fight, and Liverpool might already be preparing to sell the 31-year-old winger once the January window is open for business.

Lauded as ‘world-class’ by Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool will be silly to reject another £100m+ offer for Salah given what we now know about Al-ittihad’s interest in the forward.

And this warning from an unnamed agent could hint that Liverpool are now expected to sell Salah for the right price, something Saudi Arabia could do with ease.

Selling Salah is something no Liverpool fan wants to think about, but with Saudi Arabia not dropping their interest in the attacker anytime soon, a reality no supporter wants could be about to come true.

Whilst replacing Salah will be impossible, Liverpool now have time between now and January to find a suitable successor for the 31-year-old, with Saudi Arabia likely to move for the forward.

And if an offer of £100m+ is made, Liverpool will be in no position to reject it given how good the money would be and how ideal the move would be for Salah.
