Premier League giants Liverpool are currently leading the standings with 60 points and they are closely challenged by Manchester City and Arsenal, amassing 59 and 58 points respectively.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has already announced his departure from the club at the end of the season which could see an array of stars considering their future at Anfield beyond this term.

Mohamed Salah, who has been a talisman of the Reds' attack for the last seven years, has been the subject of interest in the transfer market with Saudi club Al-Ittihad failing with the astronomical bid of £150 million last summer.

However, the inclination to secure the signature of Salah could resurface again, as the Jeddah based club see themselves 22 points adrift league leaders Al Hilal.

Former Tottenham and West Ham cult hero Mido has claimed that Salah has already inked contracts for a move to Saudi Pro League next season.

Mido took to social media, as reported by The Sun, posting on X [formerly Twitter] stating:

"Mohamed Salah will be in the Saudi League next season. Contracts have been signed."

The 31-year-old has scored 15 goals alongside providing nine assists in 21 matches this season as Liverpool aim for silverware on three fronts, including the Premier League, the Europa League, and FA Cup, with the Carabao Cup already secured last weekend against Chelsea.

Salah will be one of the mainstays of the team to complete the quadruple under Klopp, before the German boss bids adieu to Anfield.

Mido, however, did not mention which club his fellow Egyptian will be joining after the successful spell at Liverpool, since signing from Roma in 2017 - a move that was at that time highly debated following his failed tenure at Chelsea.

In the last seven years, Salah has helped the Reds in winning seven trophies, which includes the Premier League in 2019-20 season and the coveted Champions League in 2019.

Salah’s current deal at Liverpool runs until 2025.
