Jeddah Club Makes Move for Mohamed Salah: Will Liverpool Lose Their Star Striker?

The Saudi Jeddah Club’s Attempt to Sign Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah

According to press reports, the Saudi Jeddah club has taken a new step to enlist the services of Egyptian star Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah before the end of this summer Mercato.

Saudi Federation’s Delegation

Italian journalist Rudy Galletti, who works for the Italian network Sky Sport, wrote via his account on Platform X (formerly Twitter) that the Saudi Federation had sent a delegation to Liverpool to secure a contract with Mohamed Salah.

Galletti said Al Ittihad’s management would try to talk Liverpool and its technical director Jurgen Klopp out of Mohamed Salah and the Egyptian star’s already submitted offer (over $100m) would be increased as an attempt to convince.

Mohamed Salah’s Potential Departure

In the same context, the English newspaper Daily Express reported today, Wednesday, that Mohamed Salah could leave Liverpool this week, i.e. before the deadline for closing the summer transfer market, amid reports that the Ittihad Jeddah club offered a bogus deal to join him.

In a report published on its website, the newspaper said that despite Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp saying that the Saudi club had not made any offers for Salah and that his club would certainly reject any offers, the situation could change this week.

The newspaper quoted player transfer market specialist Jan Ag Wuorthoft as saying on Platform X: “Salah will leave the club (most likely) in the coming days. I am fully aware that Salah will most likely leave Liverpool this week.”

He added: “The money received by the player and the club is incredible. The fact that the transfer window in Saudi Arabia ends on 7 September also complicates things.”

Al Ittihad Jeddah’s Offer

The newspaper added that Al Ittihad Jeddah are the club hoping to snatch Salah from Anfield ahead of schedule and claim they are willing to offer Salah the same salary that Cristiano Ronaldo receives at An Nasr.

And the Daily Express concluded that Salah’s departure represented a severe blow to Liverpool as the English club would likely remain in need of a new right winger to replace Salah, but Liverpool would have little time to find the right player replacement just two days before the end of the summer transfer window.
