According to reports, the Saudi Pro League are backing out on signing Mo Salah, with many senior partners admitting defeat as a result of the Reds' resolute position.

Al-Ittihad submitted a proposal of £150 million for the forward last Thursday, and the two sides have been communicating since the Saudi Pro League dispatched a representative to London on Saturday.

It was also reported that Al-Ittihad were prepared to pay Liverpool a sum of £200 million for the Egyptian.

However, the Reds have resisted so far despite many verbal attempts to entice the Premier League team.

It has now been reported that there is a loss of hope for the signing of Mohamad Salah before the end of the transfer window.

Salah’s transfer chances getting slim

Salah will be a Liverpool player after the Saudi window closes at 10 pm on Thursday night, barring any last-minute miracles on the side of Saudi Arabia. 

According to reports from Daily Mail, Some close to the Saudis claim they have given up hope, but Al-Ittihad is still ready to make one last daring attempt to sign the Egyptian.

The Liverpool star has been the subject of transfer speculation for the past couple of weeks after being linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

Liverpool never anticipated it to go in a different direction, and they now view the matter as resolved after formally rejecting the offer last week.

Klopp said on Sunday as reported by Daily Mail, “I never had any doubt about his commitment. He is our player and wants to play here.”

The Saudis kept tabs on the Salah issue all summer long, but they didn't make a real effort to recruit him until late in the British window, which ultimately worked against them.

It is looking more evident that Mohamad Salah will remain a Liverpool player at the end of the Saudi Arabia transfer window.
