Liverpool chief Michael Edwards is prepared to offload Mohamed Salah after Man Utd draw.

Liverpool chief Michael Edwards is reportedly willing to allow Mohamed Salah to leave the club this summer. The winger is expected to attract plenty of interest from Saudi Arabian outfits at the end of the season, and a move is not being ruled out at this stage. Salah was the subject of immense interest from Al-Ittihad last summer, but Jurgen Klopp spoke publicly against the pursuit, insisting that the Egypt international remained central to his plans at Anfield this season.

The winger has repaid the faith of his manager by scoring 17 goals and assisting nine in 25 appearances, playing a key role in Liverpool reasserting themselves as title contenders. According to reports, Middle Eastern outfits are already readying their initial approaches for Salah as they are keen to agree a deal with Liverpool before the summer transfer window opens. It is suggested that Liverpool’s CEO Michael Edwards is willing to facilitate Salah’s exit, and Saudi sides are ‘confident’ that a deal can be struck for Salah this summer.

If Salah decides to leave Merseyside, Al-Ittihad is considered the ‘most likely’ destination due to their financial power, but other top clubs may also be interested in the winger. Liverpool is already working on shortlisting a replacement for Salah, with names such as Wolves’ Pedro Neto and Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz being eyed as potential options. However, moves for these targets are expected to be delayed until it is clear whether Salah will leave the club.
