The Middle Eastern football takeover continues…or so it seems.

Despite potential interest from Saudi Pro League clubs, Liverpool does not want to sell either Mohamed Salah or Alisson during this transfer window.

Following the transfer of Fabinho to Al Ittihad and club captain Jordan Henderson to Al Ettifaq this summer, the Reds have already made just over £50 million from Saudi Arabian teams.

Salah has frequently been linked in connection with a transfer to the Saudi Pro League in recent months, despite earlier efforts by his representation to quieten down such rumours.

According to what sources have told 5Times, negotiators close to the PIF-owned teams in the league- Al Nassr, Al Hilal, Al Ahli, and Al Ittihad – have lately been in touch with both Salah’s and Alisson’s agents.

They did not, however, get any direct desire to transfer to Saudi Arabia at this time from either player. Salah and Alisson are both happy with their time at Liverpool currently and are not looking to leave Anfield anytime soon. Salah and Alisson both moved to the Merseyside from AS Roma. The duo have together won every club-level award together since joining.

Liverpool will, however, not get a chance to count on midfielders Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, even though it is likely that they would keep Salah and Alisson.

At the beginning of this week, Caicedo joined the Blues from Brighton & Hove Albion, and Lavia is about to join them after a £58 million transfer price was agreed upon.
