Mohamed Salah reaction to Saudi Arabia transfer interest as another Liverpool deal confirmed

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has revealed Mohamed Salah’s reaction regarding Saudi Arabia’s approach, meanwhile another Reds transfer has been confirmed.

Klopp says Mohamed Salah has remained ‘super committed’ in training amid interest from the Saudi Pro League. On Friday, Al-Ittihad submitted an offer worth £150m for the Egyptian, but the Reds rejected it as they maintain he’s not for sale.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa, Klopp said that Salah had been a model of professionalism behind the scenes.

Following the departures of captain Jordan Henderson and vice-captain James Milner, the 31-year-old has been promoted into the leadership group at Anfield alongside Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Alisson Becker.

“From my point of view I see absolutely nothing [to worry about],” Klopp said, via the ECHO.

“Mo is super devoted, really in training fully there, in the leadership meetings this week, he is fully in. I have to deal with facts, and my fact is ‘all good, we are here and everything is fine’.”

Unlike sides in the Premier League, Saudi clubs are still able to recruit new players until September 7, so there’s a possibility that further offers will arrive in the next week or thereabout. Indeed, a source told Sky Sports on Friday that a world-record £200m bid is a possibility.

While all the focus in the final hours of deadline day was on the confirmation of Ryan Gravenberch’s move to Liverpool, the Reds quietly confirmed another transfer. Midfielder Tyler Morton has, for the second season running, sealed a loan move to the Championship, this time with Hull City.

Morton spent last year at Blackburn Rovers, making 47 appearances in all competitions as the Lancashire outfit narrowly missed out on promotion.

Now the 20-year-old joins a Hull side that finished down in 15th in the second tier last season but has made a better start to the current campaign, winning two and drawing one of its first four matches.
