Mohamed Salah is wanted by Saudi Arabia and PL leaders Liverpool have given up on holding on to the Egyptian.

Liverpool are bracing themselves for the departure of Mohamed Salah this summer as speculation around his future at Anfield persists amid Saudi Arabia links. 

Pulse Sports Nigeria reports that the Reds are prepared to lose the Egyptian magician and have slapped a £100million price tag on their club icon.

And the Reds have seemingly accepted that keeping the 31-year-old at Anfield may now be impossible.

According to club sources via Football Insider, Liverpool will demand a fee well above £100m to sanction Salah's sale.

While losing their talisman would be a blow, such an enormous transfer kitty would allow the Premier League leaders to rebuild adequately.

The former Chelsea and Roma man has been in prolific form this season, scoring 19 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions.

But with just one year left on his current deal, Liverpool risk losing him for nothing in 2025 if they refuse to sell.

Club insiders insist that replacing Salah's consistency in front of goal will be challenging. However, armed with the huge fee likely coming their way, Liverpool will back themselves to adequately remodel their attack.

After five sensational goal-laden seasons on Merseyside, Salah's trophy-laden Anfield journey appears to be reaching its conclusion.
