Saudi Pro League targeting Mohamed Salah for the next season

Home » News » Saudi Pro League targeting Mohamed Salah for the next season

Liverpool is preparing for another Saudi Arabian raid attempt this summer. The Saudi Pro League has changed one regulation; therefore, it’s quite likely that the Reds star players like Mohamed Salah will almost certainly be of interest.

The Anfield team had to pay a tremendous price of $190 million (£150 million or €175 million) for the Egyptian’s services from Al-Ittihad last summer. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho had already moved to the Middle East when the offer was made.

The Saudi Pro League moved around 100 foreign players for an estimated £750 million during the summer transfer window of 2023, spending more on transfers than any other league. Even though not all of them have been successful—Jordan Henderson left Al-Ettifaq after only six months—sources in Saudi Arabia said there is growing optimism that the league can draw in the top players from Europe going forward.

In the upcoming months, Mohamed Salah will most likely draw more attention, and he might not be the only one. He and Alisson Becker are two of the Premier League stars that the Pro League is reportedly pursuing as it seeks to raise its reputation, according to The Guardian.

Salah is referred to as an “obvious target,” while Alisson is reportedly one of the top targets for many Saudi teams in their most recent buying binge. Raphaël Varane and Casemiro of Manchester United, the latter of whom is expected to depart the Old Trafford team this summer, are both mentioned as possible targets.

Although Saudi teams have little trouble obtaining money to entice famous players to the Middle East, their ability to attract overseas players has been restricted. However, this year has seen a slight ease in overcoming that obstacle.

For the next season, Saudi teams will have an increased quota of foreign players—from eight to ten—allowing them greater leeway to pursue high-profile players. Plans to get private companies to fund teams not supported by the nation’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) might aid them even more.
