Liverpool star Mo Salah’s proposed £215m Saudi transfer takes deadline day twist

MOHAMED SALAH’S potential move to Al-Ittihad has taken one final twist as the Saudi Arabian transfer deadline edges close.

Salah has been the subject of huge speculation around an exit from Liverpool in favour of a move to the Middle East.

SunSport exclusively revealed that the Reds were offered a staggering £215million for their Egyptian king earlier in the window.

But it would seem that one final twist in this transfer saga will see Salah stay put on Merseyside.

According to The Athletic, the 31-year-old will not be leaving Liverpool this summer despite the eye-watering sums offered for him.

But Liverpool fans won’t want to get too excited as it doesn’t mean a move is completely off the table.

It is reported that the Saudi outfit are not deterred by their failed attempt to sign Salah this summer and are still keen on making a deal happen in the future.

Relationships between all parties are said to be in a good place and it could mean the saga is reopened in January.

Jurgen Klopp has been reported as steadfast on his desire to keep hold of Salah who has helped him win the Premier League and Champions League as Liverpool boss.

The talismanic winger has been with the club since 2017 scoring 188 goals and registering 81 assists in 309 appearances.
