Liverpool tipped for title challenge and labelled ‘better’ than Arsenal as they block Saudi interest in Salah

Liverpool have been told they are capable of challenging for the Premier League title this season after keeping Mohamed Salah.

The club insisted Salah was not for sale despite huge interest from the Saudi Pro League to make them their biggest signing of all time.

Al Ittihad were desperate to snap up the Egypt international and it is reported they were willing to form out a fee totalling a world-record £215million.

But with the Saudi Pro League transfer window which slammed shut on Thursday night and no bid accepted, Salah is staying put…. for now.

While Liverpool might have kept their prized asset, they might have simply staved off the inevitable with Saudi clubs set to make another move next summer.

Al Ittihad are one of the teams expected to push for the Reds superstar.

But while Liverpool still retain Salah’s services, they have been told they’re in a better position than Arsenal to beat Manchester City to the title.

That is the verdict from ex-Liverpool star Jermaine Pennant, who is quietly confident about the Reds’ chances this season.
