Liverpool offered world-record fee for Salah
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be pleased with his side’s start to the new Premier League season, as they sit third going into the international break.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea in their opener at Stamford Bridge, but have since beaten Bournemouth, Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
Despite their unbeaten start to the new campaign, it hasn’t been plane sailing for Klopp as forward Mohamed Salah has been heavily linked with a move away from the club.
The Egyptian has attracted interest from Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad, and it appears that Liverpool’s battle to keep hold of him isn’t yet over.
As per The Sun, the Pro League outfit made a second offer for Salah on Monday evening, worth a staggering £215 million.
If accepted, that figure would make Salah the most expensive player in football history.
It is claimed that Al-Ittihad initially made a bid of £150 million for the Egypt international but the Reds rejected the offer on Friday.
Whilst the British transfer window is now shut, Saudi Arabian sides are at an advantage as they have until Thursday to complete any new signings.
With that in mind, representatives from Al-Ittihad have flown into London to make one final attempt to lure the 31-year-old to the Middle East.
The player has also been offered a staggering £2.45 million-per-week to move to the Pro League side, the report claims.
Salah joined Liverpool from Serie A side Roma back in 2017 and has been prolific ever since, scoring a remarkable 188 goals in 309 matches across all competitions.
The former Chelsea man has started the new season in fine form, scoring twice and providing two assists in four games.
Liverpool boss Klopp has so far remained adamant that Salah isn’t for sale and is committed to the Anfield outfit, but it remains to be seen whether or not the latest offer from Saudi Arabia will change their stance.
