Al-Ittihad of the Saudi Pro League made Liverpool a £150 million bid for Mohamed Salah, but Liverpool rejected it.
Salah, who switched from Roma to the Reds in 2017, agreed to a new three-year deal last summer.
The offer for the 31-year-old striker exceeded £100 million, and add-ons raised the total to £150 million. The Egyptian international is not for sale, according to Liverpool, and that is the end of the matter in their eyes.
Salah’s likely exit would leave Liverpool with little time to respond since the transfer market for Premier League teams closes tonight at 23:00 BST.
Al-Ittihad can still buy players, though, as the Saudi Pro League transfer market will end in mid-September. Salah’s agent had previously denied rumours of a move to Saudi Arabia, but given the most recent connections with Al-Ittihad, he has not reacted.
Salah is “100% dedicated” to the cause at Anfield, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who also reaffirmed the club’s position on Friday.
Salah, a crucial member of the Merseysiders, has won several trophies throughout his term at Anfield, including the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Fifa Club World Cup, and Uefa Super Cup. Additionally, he has earned and shared three Premier League Golden Boots and two PFA Player of the Year honours.
