Liverpool reportedly now have a plan in place to replace Mohamed Salah, who is primed to leave Anfield in 2024.

According to journalist Ben Jacobs, the Reds have a list of potential targets should the 31-year-old attacker depart Liverpool in the next 12 months.

Salah was strongly linked with a move to Al-Ittihad in the summer as the Saudi Arabia side made a club-record £125m offer for the Liverpool superstar.

With a rumoured £200m bid in the pipeline, Al-Ittihad will be back for Salah in 2024, and Liverpool now seemingly have a plan to replace the Egyptian international in the coming months.

Jacobs said: “Liverpool are planners anyway. So, it’s not like because of the Saudi interest this summer, they’re suddenly thinking about replacing Salah.

“Liverpool will have already had a list of Salah replacements long before they knew about the Saudi interest because that’s how they plan. That’s how they work and how the dynamic is.”

Replacing Salah will be one of the most important moves Liverpool make in the market in some years, and the Reds have to ensure that they get the right signing.

No player in the market can currently emulate what Salah has done for Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp and his team can come pretty close through current options.

Indeed, a younger player with the potential to become a superstar will be the key, with Salah already hailed as ‘world-class’ by Klopp.
