Mohamed Salah will “100%” complete a move from Liverpool to Saudi Arabia at some point in the future, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

The Egyptian King continues to be one of the first names on the team sheet at Anfield, scoring and assisting at a typically relentless rate.

This season, Salah already has eight goals and four assists in 10 Premier League appearances, not to mention also netting twice in the Europa League.

Liverpool managed to keep hold of the 31-year-old beyond the summer transfer window, despite big interest from Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Ittihad, who had a £150m bid rejected, but they will surely be back to table another offer soon.

Speaking to Football Insider, former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor believes there is an inevitability about Salah eventually heading to Saudi Arabia:

“I do see Mo Salah in Saudi Arabia, 100%. He’ll go out there and be the highest-paid player. I do see it happening in the summer.

“He’ll have a year left on his contract, and Liverpool will know it’s coming and have the chance to find a replacement. I don’t think it’s about money for Liverpool. They’ll get whatever they ask for. It’s inevitable at this point.

“As much as Klopp won’t want to lose him, he could well be given all that money to go out and replace him with someone younger. We don’t know if Salah’s legs will start to go in the coming years. I think it would be good business to move him on in 2024.”

Our thoughts on Agbonlahor’s verdict on Salah’s future…

In truth, it is easy to see Salah joining the Saudi Pro League at some point, with the Liverpool legend potentially liking the idea of being one of the biggest poster boys for the competition.

It would be a crying shame if he left the Reds during his peak, however, with so much still to come from him in his career, especially considering the physical condition he keeps himself in.

Salah’s current Liverpool deal runs out in 2025, so the club do have a decision to make in terms of receiving a massive fee for him next summer, or simply allowing him to leave for free when his contract expires.

Ideally, though, the Egyptian superstar would extend his stay beyond 2025 and continue to wreak havoc in a Reds shirt for another three or four years, before then moving on.

Should Salah want to leave Anfield at the end of this season, it is paramount that Liverpool only let it happen if they receive eye-watering money for him, in order for Jurgen Klopp to sign a stunning replacement and further rebuild his squad.
