Liverpool are off to a good start this season, with Mohamed Salah finding his scoring boots before heading into the current international break. Surely then, Jurgen Klopp has nothing to worry about, right?

Wrong. Despite claiming that his star player Salah isn’t up for sale at any price, the interested officials in Saudi Arabia won’t give up. They have been known to insist in their pursuit of Salah, who they believe is keen to join their developing league, which is home to some of the best players in world football.

Saudi Arabia officials in England to convince Liverpool & Mohamed Salah

According to a confidential from the Daily Mail, there is a Saudi Arabia delegation currently in England. The role of the delegation is to convince Liverpool to sell Mohamed Salah for one last time and as mentioned earlier, they believe the player is on board with the move.

From my view, it would be very unlikely that Jurgen Klopp could be persuaded into selling their best player at this point in time. In fact, it would be catastrophic for the season of Liverpool. Bear in mind, the English transfer market is closed. So while players can still leave, the clubs cannot bring in any replacements at this time.

Salah isn’t just a rotational player, he is a crucial player to Klopp. In fact, he’s the first name on the team sheet and the best player by some distance. To sell him, while not being able to bring in a new signing to replace him, would be absolutely disastrous, therefore I cannot see him being sold.

Klopp has been urged to sell Mohamed Salah to fund the move for a younger upcoming player such as Bukayo Saka. While I see the chances of Saka leaving Arsenal as virtually impossible, selling Salah could be an avenue for Klopp to explore in January, but not now.

Do you think Mohamed Salah will be sold?
