Huge relief for Klopp, with two Liverpool stars “not wanting to leave” despite confirmed contact


Liverpool have learned they have little to fear when it comes to the Saudi Pro League looking to rip off Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker.

After Al-Ittihad signed Fabinho, Al-Ettifaq bought Jordan Henderson and Al-Ahli bought Roberto Firmino, Liverpool braced for further Saudi interest in some of their key players.

News broke on Tuesday that Al-Nassr would be interested in Alisson, following recent claims that Salah is also in the running for a move to Saudi Arabia.


However, a 90-minute refresh, Liverpool can breathe a sigh of relief. The former Roma couple have “no plans to leave the club” at this time. The report confirms that intermediaries contacted representatives of the two players to solicit interest from one of the four Saudi Pro League clubs belonging to the Public Investment Fund (Al-Ittihad, Al-Ahli, Al-Nassr and Al -Hilal Express).

But none of their next targets are “ready to move to Saudi Arabia at this stage”.

Salah signed a contract extension with Liverpool last summer to keep him at the club until 2025, while Alisson remains on contract until 2027.

Both were in the starting XI for Liverpool’s Premier League opener against Chelsea, although Salah was clearly unhappy with the replacement.

Alisson and Salah remain at Liverpool


As one of the most famous Arab and Muslim sportsmen of all time, Salah was an obvious target for the financially strong Saudi Pro League. However, the 31-year-old still has plenty to offer in the Premier League and his agent has confirmed he is still linked with Liverpool.

His Liverpool career to date has included 186 goals in 306 games. Only four players have scored more goals for the club.


Meanwhile, Alisson is to become one of Liverpool’s best goalkeepers, certainly in the modern era, thanks to the stability he has brought to the department since his arrival in 2018.

And it appears Liverpool are still eager to have the 30-year-old in charge, despite Foot Mercato’s original claims that he would be “quite tempted” by a new challenge in Saudi Arabia. His move to Al-Nassr could have linked him to Sadio Mane, whose move from Liverpool to Bayern Munich last summer never went to plan.

But after a summer of significant changes at Anfield, Liverpool can now count on Alisson and Salah remaining available until the end of the transfer window.
