As European football’s summer transfer window looms closer, the future of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool has become a topic of intense speculation. With just one year left on his contract, rumours have been swirling about the possibility of the Egyptian star departing Anfield, with potential suitors from Saudi Arabia reportedly interested in securing his services.

However, amid the speculation, Salah himself has remained tight-lipped about his intentions. Despite a recent on-field disagreement with Jurgen Klopp – the manager who will bid adieu and be replaced by Arne Slot at the end of the season – during a Premier League clash against West Ham, Salah has given no indication that he wishes to part ways with the Reds. 

The situation has been further complicated by the impending arrival of Richard Hughes as the club’s new sporting director, who is set to take on the task of addressing Salah’s future once he assumes his new role. Additionally, the appointment of Feyenoord boss Slot as Klopp’s successor adds another layer of uncertainty to the situation.

Salah’s recent performances have also come under scrutiny, with some observers noting a dip in form in the latter half of the current campaign. Jamie Carragher, Sky Sports pundit who played more than 700 games for the club, even went as far as to suggest that Salah has been a “shadow of himself” for much of the season, raising questions about whether the club should consider selling him.

“There is a real discussion for the new manager about what the future holds for Mo Salah – it’s the first time we’ve asked that question,” Carragher remarked during a recent analysis on Sky Sports.

Despite the speculation and concerns over his form after his return from the serious hamstring injury sustained on international duty with Egypt, Liverpool remain steadfast in their stance that Salah will remain a key part of their squad for the foreseeable future. With his electrifying pace, clinical finishing, and proven track record of success, the Egyptian forward remains one of the most valuable assets in world football. Up until his injury in February, he was also a byword for robustness, barely missing a game in seven seasons.

As the transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on Anfield to see how the situation unfolds. Will Salah commit his future to Liverpool, or will he seek new challenges elsewhere, especially with whispers of Saudi clubs being prepared to spend upward of $100m to sign him? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: the uncertainty surrounding Salah’s next move will continue to be a major talking point in the world of football.
