According to Liverpool Echo, while the transfer window in England has officially closed, Saudi Arabian clubs still have two more days to complete player acquisitions. This extension implies that speculations regarding Mohamed Salah’s future will continue to circulate. In fact, it seems that a delegation from Al Ittihad is determined to make a last-ditch £200 million bid to secure the services of the Egyptian superstar from Liverpool.
Salah’s Exceptional Form For Liverpool in the Previous Campaign
Throughout the season, the 31-year-old consistently delivered impressive performances at Anfield. Over the course of 51 appearances for the Reds across all competitions, he managed to score 30 goals and provide 15 assists.
The extraordinarily talented Egyptian player demonstrated remarkable consistency, maintaining an average of 3.3 shots, 1.7 key passes, and 1.3 successful dribbles per game in the Premier League. Furthermore, he exhibited proficiency in passing, with a pass completion rate of 78.1% in the English top flight (statistics sourced from whoscored).
Will The Liverpool Star Make An Exit From Anfield?
Salah is one of the best players in the world and has been a key part of Liverpool’s success in recent years. If Salah were to leave, Liverpool would need to find a replacement who can score goals and create chances at a similar rate. This would be a difficult task, as there are few players in the world who are as good as him. Moreover, the transfer window has closed and Jurgen Klopp would have ti wait until the winter transfer window to bring in a decent replacement which is highly unlikely.
In addition to the loss of goals and creativity, Salah’s exit would also be a blow to Merseyside club’s morale. He is a popular figure among the fans and players, and his departure would be a major disappointment. Nonetheless, the possibility of Salah making an exit from Anfield is very doubtful considering the Egyptian forward has a strong allegiance to the Reds and is under contract until 2025.
