According to recent reports, it seems that a delegation from Saudi Arabia has arrived in England with the intention of reigniting negotiations with Liverpool for the transfer of Mohammed Salah.
Despite the closure of the European transfer window, Al-Ittihad, backed by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund, remains determined to secure Salah’s services and has sent a delegation to England to convince Liverpool.
The influx of cash into the Saudi Professional League after the acquisition of the ‘big four’ teams has led to some unexpected transfer moves, with top players opting for the Gulf.
Al-Ittihad, the reigning SPL champions, has already made significant signings like Karim Benzema and N’golo Kante. However, their ambitions don’t stop there, as they are now targeting Salah from Liverpool.
Despite the close of the European transfer window, Saudi Professional League side Al-Ittihad are reportedly insistent on landing Mohammed Salah and have sent a delegation to England in an attempt to convince the Reds.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool’s public ‘not for sale’ stance on Mohammed Salah has not discouraged Al-Ittihad, and they are still actively trying to get the deal done.
Per the reports, a delegation from the oil-rich state arrived in England on Saturday to rekindle negotiations with Liverpool for Salah.
Having already had a bid of around £150 million rejected, the party is said to be willing to go as high as £200 million to tempt Liverpool.
It remains to be seen if the Reds will bulge, as Salah’s performance in the 3-0 win against Aston Villa this past weekend, in which he scored, could further strengthen their resolve.
