Al Ittihad target Benzema, then Salah…talks open with Liverpool
Al Ittihad’s ambitions continue.
“Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad have now set their sights on Premier League star Mohamed Salah,” Spanish media outlet Fichajes reported on Saturday.
Salah is one of Liverpool’s most iconic players. Since joining the Reds from Roma in 2017, he has become one of the best players in the world, scoring 186 goals in 306 appearances.
Last season was no exception. Despite his team’s severe downturn, he scored 30 goals in 51 games across all competitions, showing off his rust-free, world-class form.
His consistent performances have also put him on the radar of Saudi Arabia. According to the report, Al-Ittihad have already opened talks with Liverpool to sign Salah this summer.
Al Ittihad have been on a spending spree in the transfer market this summer. Starting with Karim Benzema, followed by N’Golo Kante and Zotta, the club has been able to strengthen its squad in a big way.
They even managed to land a Liverpool player. Al Ittihad officially announced Fabinho’s arrival on January 1. The move came as a shock to Liverpool fans, as the player was initially expected to stay.
Now, the Reds have renewed their efforts to sign Salah. Al Ittihad will use their deep pockets to win over both the club and the player.
It”s not out of the question that a transfer will happen. Salah has reportedly left the door open to a move to Saudi Arabia, leaving all decisions up to Liverpool.스포츠토토
The Reds are expected to decide whether or not to complete the transfer. The source added: “Al Ittihad are already in direct talks with Liverpool. If the Reds allow Salah to move, negotiations will move quickly.”
