The Saudi Pro League club have already raided Liverpool for defensive midfielder Fabinho, while they have also persuaded the likes of Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante to become part of their ambitious project. Acquiring Salah, however, would represent arguably the biggest acquisition in the league’s fledgling history – given Cristiano Ronaldo was a free agent when he moved earlier this year following his release by Manchester United. The Liverpool winger’s agent dismissed speculation that Salah was considering his future a fortnight ago but Al-Ittihad’s renewed interest and show of ambition has prompted the 31-year-old to hear them out. Responding to reports that Liverpool’s resolve to keep Salah will be tested ahead of the transfer window closing – Klopp, speaking ahead of Sunday’s game against Newcastle, said: ‘It’s a bit difficult to talk about media stories because there is nothing to talk about. ‘We don’t have an offer. He’s a Liverpool player. To all the things we do he is essential, he was and will be, there is nothing there. If there was something, the answer would be no. ‘In my life, I think about a problem when I have it. There’s nothing at the moment. When something comes up then I can think about it. If there would be something, there is a no.’
