Jurgen Klopp is no longer convinced by Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah, meaning the club could explore a potential sale.
That’s according to CalcioMercatoWeb, who report the Reds manager has not been that impressed with the 30-year-old’s performances this season.
As a result, it is said the Merseyside outfit would seriously consider turning to the transfer market, with the Egypt international making way for a direct replacement.
Paris Saint-Germain would be very interested in signing Salah, and it is believed Liverpool would accept an offer around the £70m mark to let him leave.
With this money, they would look to land Federico Chiesa from Juventus, who would reportedly cost £53m.
Liverpool could sell Salah?
Alike the vast majority of the Reds’ squad, Salah hasn’t been anywhere near his best this term.
In 19 Premier League matches, the attacker has bagged seven goals and four assists. Since arriving at Liverpool, his lowest league tally has been 19 for the season, but even that came the year Klopp’s side won the title.
The Egyptian is usually relied upon by the Reds to score goals, yet he hasn’t looked as clinical in the final third in recent months.
Despite this, Salah has managed to bag seven goals in six Champions League games thus far. Although he hasn’t had the tournament he would have hoped for, he has still been able to put the ball in the back of the net – much to Klopp’s relief.
However, with Salah turning 31 years old this summer, the Merseyside outfit will have a big decision to make over his future.
A fee of around £70m would allow the club to bring in a very strong replacement, with the forward not getting any younger.
Although Salah has proven time and time again that he’s an ‘unbelievable player’, Liverpool won’t want to have a reoccurrence of Sadio Mane, who joined Bayern Munich for just £35m.
This suggestion does appear somewhat unlikely, especially with everything the attacker has done for the club since arriving at Anfield
