Liverpool: Mohamed Salah ‘will definitely leave’ as Klopp told of new forward trio | Football | Sport

Liverpool icon Mark Lawrenson believes Mohamed Salah will ‘definitely’ leave the Reds in the summer. The Egyptian winger has been strongly linked with a move to Saudi Arabia to join the influx of high-profile stars who have moved to the Middle East.

At least one bid by Al-Ittihad was rejected in the summer, with Jurgen Klopp insisting that Salah would remain. It was widely reported that the reigning Pro League champions were prepared to pay a record-breaking £215m fee.

Salah stayed at Liverpool and has been one of the club’s best players this season, scoring 18 goals across all competitions. Former defender Lawrenson believes it will be Salah’s last year at Anfield, though.

Lawrenson says that Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz all seem to ‘enjoy’ playing in a front three when Salah is absent. However, the Scot, 66, believes the next Reds manager will want to sign an external replacement for the former Chelsea attacker.

“100 per cent Mo Salah will definitely leave this summer. No matter what happens this season, I think there was a deal last summer,” Lawrenson told Paddy Power.

“He’ll go and play somewhere like Saudi Arabia and hopefully Liverpool get a massive fee and get a couple of players off the back of it. Salah will be a king in Saudi!

“He could’ve gone last summer and stormed into Jurgen Klopp’s office and said, ‘I want to go’, but he’s not done that. The lads who have come in [in Salah’s absence] know that they’re fighting for their position which is great, as long as a couple of them don’t get injured.

“You can see that Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz like playing with each other and they all scored a goal against Burnley, even Nunez!
