Will Mohamed Salah stay at Anfield this summer?

With the Jurgen Klopp era at Anfield having come to an emotional end on the final day of the 2023/24 Premier League season, eyes inevitably turn towards the future for Liverpool Football Club.


The impact that the enigmatic German has had on the playing staff at Liverpool has been astronomical and the player that has arguably benefitted the most from Klopp’s buccaneering playing style has been Mohamed Salah. Now known as the Egyptian King by all and sundry at Anfield, it is easy to forget the inauspicious start Salah endured when he first came to the Premier League.


Declared a flop by Chelsea following his move to West London in the summer of 2012, Salah moved to Fiorentina and then Roma in Italy and very few expected him to come back to the Premier League or indeed, have the capability to make an impact in England’s top flight. However, following some impressive performances in Serie A, Liverpool decided to push the boat out to sign Salah in 2017 – for the then eyebrow raising sum of £45 million.


The subsequent years have proven that to be stellar business, with Salah having gone on to amass an incredible 207 goals for the reds and his impact at the club continues to transcend both on and off the pitch.


Uncertainty looks to be very much part of the fabric at Anfield this summer, with Arne Slot coming in to replace Jurgen Klopp and inevitably, question marks are being asked about whether Mohamed Salah will be at Liverpool moving forwards.

Such is the interest in the global power that is Liverpool Football club, that every move made by any of their playing staff is always tracked and touted by sports bookmakers and the future of Mohamed Salah is often speculated by sports betting sites and experts.


Many online casinos with sportsbooks seem uncertain about where Salah will be playing next year, making it a potentially fascinating summer for both the Egyptian star and Liverpool.


Sensational Salah


Much like Jurgen Klopp, imagining a Liverpool Football Club without Mohamed Salah is an odd prospect and the impact he has had at the club has been immeasurably positive.


During his time at Anfield, Salah has won the Champions League (2019) and the Premier League (2020), as well as an array of domestic cup competitions in England and invariably, Salah has been to go-to man for Liverpool in this era of success.


Along with fellow club legends such as Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah’s place within the great pantheons of Liverpool greats is secure and the romantic connection between Salah and his adorning fans remains as strong as ever.


With 207 goals for the club across all competitions, his record more than speaks for itself and how Liverpool would struggle to fill his void if he were to leave the club.


Saudi Arabia calling?


The summer of 2023 was heralded as a new era in world football, with heavy Saudi Arabian investment shaking up the global footballing picture as we know it.


Cristiano Ronaldo set the trend, with the likes of Sadio Mane, Riyad Mahrez and Neymar Jr all following suit and deciding to play their football out in the Gulf, with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard even taking up a managerial calling out there.


One of their ultimate aims however looks to be to sign Mohamed Salah to the Saudi Pro League, with the Egyptian regarded as a hero by all football fans in the Gulf.


With Salah set to turn 32 in the summer, it would appear that his absolute best football is behind him and with sums of £100+ million being discussed to bring Salah to Saudi Arabia, few would begrudge him the move.


Stay in the Slot?


The other obvious option for Mohamed Salah if the Saudi Arabian move doesn’t materialise, is to be a big part of life after Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.


Arne Slot has already spoken of his desire to keep Mohamed Salah this summer and having his guaranteed goal threat will be hugely useful for the Dutchman, as he looks to adjust to life in England.


How the Liverpool fans would love Salah to stay for at least one more year and who knows if he could be the man to inspire Liverpool to another Premier League title push.
