Mo Salah agent claim & Arthur transfer rumour – Latest LFC News

In Monday’s Liverpool news round up, Mo Salah‘s agent dismissed one rumour as “nonsense,” with speculation suggesting Arthur could return to Brazil.


Salah to leave the Reds? Nonsense!

Ramy Abbas Issa, the agent of Mo Salah, says a transfer rumour circling about the Egyptian on Monday is “nonsense.”

A recent story via Spanish football news outlet Fichajes, a notoriously poor source for transfer rumours, has suggested that Salah would be prepared to leave Liverpool should they fail to achieve a top four finish.

Salah, of course, put pen to paper on a new long-term Liverpool contract last summer, after months of uncertainty as to whether Liverpool would be prepared to hand him a deal that would see him become the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

The deal was confirmed on July 1 last year, with the club using an ironic tweet from Abbas as part of the announcement at the time.

Liverpool have struggled this season, and so too has Salah, but there’s no way he would look to jump ship should they fail to secure a place in next year’s Champions League.

Social post of the day and match of the night

Not the result Newcastle wanted, but it was good to see Loris Karius back in action on Sunday. His first game in 728 days, and he can be proud of his performance.

No fixtures of any real note this evening, unless you fancy some Swansea vs Rotherham in the Championship (8pm GMT), Villarreal vs Getafe in La Liga (8pm) or Lazio vs Sampdoria in Serie A (7.45pm).

Jurgen Klopp‘s pre-Wolves press conference will take place at 1.30pm tomorrow.

Take care, Reds!
