Italian journalist drops big deadline day update involving £350k-p/w star

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is still the subject of interest from Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad on the final day of the transfer window, as Italian journalist Rudy Galetti provides GIVEMESPORT with an update on how the saga could play out at Anfield.

According to The Telegraph, Al-Ittihad are prepared to pay £150m to secure the signature of Salah in Saudi Arabia before the closure of the European transfer window at 11 pm this evening. However, intermediaries from the club have not received anything from the Reds to suggest that a deal would be welcomed or is possible in the next few hours.

Privately, Liverpool suggest Salah is not for sale, but the same report claims that this may not deter Al-Ittihad after Fabinho and Jordan Henderson were lured to the Middle East during the market. Klopp’s pre-match press conference ahead of their clash with Aston Villa on Sunday takes place this afternoon, and the German head coach will be asked about the future of the 31-year-old.

Galetti claims that Salah “appreciates the idea” of playing in Saudi Arabia and has informed Liverpool of this. The reporter also claims that an “important delegation” from Al-Ittihad are now in Merseyside to try and convince the six-time European Cup winners to let the £350,000 per-week earner leave.
