Mohammed Salah replacement found, deal to be completed ahead of January transfer window

Mohamed Salah is still mentioned in connection with a lucrative transfer to Saudi Arabia.

If Mohamed Salah is taken by Saudi Arabia in the next few days, Liverpool may have the chance to recruit the ideal replacement in January. After having a proposal rejected last week, Al-Ittihad is apparently in a frantic attempt to get Salah while the Saudi Pro League’s transfer market is still open.

Liverpool allegedly rejected down a hefty bid of about £150 million on Friday, choosing to hold onto Salah for the remainder of the English transfer season. However, there is still time to reach an agreement, and there are rumors that Al-Ittihad may shortly return to the table with a more substantial offer.

Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Salah has not wanted to go and appears certain to remain at Anfield, and there is no sign that Liverpool would budge from their position. Money talks in football, though, so it’s unclear whether another Saudi proposal would result in a different outcome for the Reds.


Salah would surely need to be replaced by Liverpool as soon as possible if he were to be moved to Al-Ittihad in the coming days. They could do much worse than to try to sign Khvicha Kvaratskhelia from Napoli, who during the course of last season developed as one of Europe’s best wingers.

Kvaratskhelia is now committed to Napoli through the summer of 2027, however it has been claimed that he has been negotiating a new contract lately. The 22-year-old wants his pay to reflect his significant role at the club because, according to TMW, he is now one of the lowest-paid members of Napoli’s senior team.

He is reportedly making roughly £16,000 per week right now, which might work against Napoli if they don’t raise his pay before the new year. They could be persuaded to make a large salary increase in an effort to entice him to Anfield, knowing that Kvaratskhelia can step in as Salah’s long-term successor for a number of years.
