Al-Ittihad of the Saudi Pro League is said to have received approval from Mohamed Salah to start negotiations about a transfer.
The Liverpool player is now the focus of new rumors after a report in the Qatari outlet Alkass stated that the side wants to hold negotiations with Liverpool over a potential summer transfer.
The club is willing to offer £60 million for the 31-year-old, while offering the Egyptian £180 million over two seasons.
Ramy Abbas, Salah’s agent, has consistently denied the rumors linking his client with a transfer to the Pro League, but more recent reports have gained momentum.
The rumors became much more intense after Ahmad Essam Kaaki, vice president of Ittihad Jeddah, began to follow Salah on Instagram.
After months of negotiations, Salah agreed to a new three-year deal worth about £350,000 per week with Liverpool in July 2022, but that hasn’t stopped rumors from swirling about Salah’s future at Anfield.
After being replaced by 17-year-old Ben Doak during Sunday’s 1-1 draw between Liverpool and Chelsea, Salah seemed upset with Jurgen Klopp.
Salah didn’t even look Klopp in the eye as he walked away, ripping the tape off his wrist and tossing it to the ground.
Liverpool is short on players heading into the new campaign after selling Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the Saudi Pro League when they still needed midfield reinforcements.
When Moises Caicedo left Brighton for Chelsea, they failed to secure his signing. Romeo Lavia is another who they appear to be missing out on.
