The Reds are expected to receive more offers to sell Mohamed Salah next summer.

Al Ittihad have reportedly joined Al Hilal in a transfer race to sign Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah next summer.

In September, the Reds rejected a £150 million offer from Al Hilal to sell the Premier League icon. Some English sources went as far as to claim the Saudi Pro club submitted another astronomical offer worth £215 million later on.

Al Hilal is now reportedly facing competition from a fellow Saudi Arabian side in their efforts to sign Salah.

According to Sportitalia journalist Rudy Galetti, Al Ittihad have contacted Salah’s representatives ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations. The Egypt international could secure wages of around £2.45m a week if he completes a move to Saudi Arabia.

Salah’s superb form in the current campaign will make it difficult for Liverpool to part ways with him. The star winger has registered 14 goals and eight assists in 20 Premier League appearances so far this season, playing a crucial role in Liverpool’s rise to the top of the table.

A possible bidding war between Al Ittihad and Al Hilal could see Liverpool secure an even higher transfer fee than what they were offered last summer. Let’s see if the Reds would be open to re-enter negotiations with the Saudi Arabian clubs at the end of the season.
