Al-Ittihad are showing high interest in signing Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah this summer.
Salah committed to a new long-term contract with Liverpool little over 13 months ago. He has also pledged his future to the club until the end of 2024-25.
The Egypt international went on to score 29 goals and assist 15 times in all competitions throughout Jurgen Klopp’s side’s disastrous season.
Although Saudi Arabia is openly planning on signing him, Liverpool is in a strong position to keep him for the upcoming season.
According to reports, the general consensus is that Saudi Pro League offers will start to surface in 2024, which is when Liverpool would actually need to decide how to handle the possibility of a Salah departure.
However, the spending binge in that division has resulted in the league becoming considerably better than many expected at this stage of its development.
Al-Ittihad, according to Arriyadiyah, are making every attempt to sign Salah before the summer transfer window closes.

According to the source, talks between the league winners and Salah have already begun, with the 31-year-old reportedly in line to get a more lucrative deal than the majority of players who have already relocated to the Middle East.
According to Al-Riyadiah, Salah may earn €90 million (£77.64 million) every season over a two-year contract.
Furthermore, it is reported that Liverpool would be presented with a £60 million bid to sell Salah, which would most likely be rejected.
Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have already left Liverpool for Saudi Arabia for a combined fee of £52 million, while Roberto Firmino has moved to the same region on a free transfer.
Klopp has yet to find replacements for the aforementioned two midfielders, but another central forward is on his radar if an opportunity arises.
Salah has shown no hint that he will leave Liverpool at this point in his career, having turned down interest from European clubs last summer in order to extend his contract.
