Liverpool are continuing to benefit from one of the star’s of the season so far in the Premier League, with Mohamed Salah having been in simply sublime form.
The Reds winger has shot to the top of the Premier League goals charts, outscoring the likes of Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Chelsea hitman Alvaro Morata.
As is his prolific form during such a rampant run in the English top-flight, interest was bound to be shown in his services, and Liverpool now seemingly have a fight on their hands to retain him in the transfer window.
According to various reports in Spain, it’s La Liga giants and back-to-back European champions Real Madrid that are leading the chase for his signature in the coming months.
It’s reported that Zinedine Zidane’s Galacticos are willing to offer a substantial transfer fee for Salah, while also including speedy wideman Lucas Vazquez as part of the deal.
The 26-year-old Spaniard has been hugely limited this current campaign in La Liga under the guidance of French boss Zidane, managing just a single league strike so far during proceedings.
That’s a far cry from the clinical form that Liverpool wizard Salah has been in at Anfield across all competitions, including the Premier League and Champions League.
With Los Blancos struggling badly domestically this term, president Florentino Perez is said to be determined on landing new attacking acquisitions.
It would seem that Salah is now top of the club’s transfer target list, as they aim to bounce back during the winter period and catch up on bitter rivals Barcelona in the battle for La Liga supremacy.
It would certainly not be a like-for-like swap in terms of talent but if Jurgen Klopp is going to lose his star man in January, the German coach may see Vazquez as a quick-fire replacement on top of a big-money fee.
Although, with the form that Salah is in this campaign, Real Madrid may have to dig deep for a potentially massive sum to land his mercurial talents in the transfer window.
