This summer, Liverpool has already sold two players to the Saudi Pro League. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho were both permitted to leave Merseyside for large sums of money.

And it appears that Salah will soon join them through the Anfield exit door. According to Saudi sports broadcaster Riyadiyatv, the winger will finalize a move to Al-Ittihad.

Salah is expected to play for Liverpool in their encounter at St James’ Park before heading to Dubai for a medical. Al-Ittihad increased their interest in Salah this week and appear to be close to a deal.

This latest development comes after Sport Italia reported that Salah had informed Liverpool that he wanted to move to the Saudi Pro League. Al-Ittihad is said to have made an offer of more than £79 million for the 31-year-old.

According to the source, Al-Ittihad set their own deadline of Monday to see whether a deal for Salah was doable. It seems increasingly likely that they will be successful in their pursuit.

Losing Salah at this stage of the transfer window would be devastating for Liverpool. Since arriving from Roma in 2017, the attacker has scored 187 goals in 307 appearances for the club.

Salah has helped Jurgen Klopp’s team win the Premier League, the Champions League, and reach two more finals in Europe’s top club competitions. During his press conference on Friday, Klopp put an end to any rumors about Salah’s departure.

The German stated that there had been no formal interest and that Salah was completely committed to Liverpool: “It’s difficult to talk about media stories as there’s nothing to talk about from our point of view.

“Mo Salah is a Liverpool player. There’s nothing there. If there was something the answer would be no [he’s not for sale].”

“My life philosophy is I think about a problem when I have it. At the moment, there’s nothing. I said already if there is something, the answer would be no. [He is] 100 per cent [committed].”
