However, with the Saudi transfer window shut for now, there is speculation that Al-Ittihad may come back with an even higher offer amidst reports that Liverpool might have initiated negotiations if there was an offer of around £200 million.

Reports suggest that Liverpool have identified Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr. as a potential replacement for the Reds. The 23-year-ole Brazilian winger is an undisputed starter at the Bernabeu and is the star attacker for the Los Blancos. Vinicius has bagged 59 Goals and 64 assists in over 220 Games for Real. The player fits right into the Profile of star man Mohamed Salah, with his natural goalscoring ability as welm his ability to create goals amd attacking opportunities up front.

However, Real will be reluctant to sell their starboy unless an offer of such high magnitude presents itself. Liverpool may line up such an offer if Al-Ittihad approach with an offer close to the £200 million region. Liverpool may loosen their stand on the Mo Salah situation, provided they recieve £200m plus for a 31-year-old Winger who is not getting any younger.
