Former Everton Chief Claims Liverpool Will Be ‘Wise’ to Cash in on Underperforming Player This Summer

Ex-Everton CEO advises Liverpool to capitalise on Mohamed Salah.

Keith Wyness, former Everton head honcho, has sparked debate by proposing that Liverpool should entertain a reported offer of “£100 million” from Saudi Arabia for Mohamed Salah.

In an interview on Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, the 66-year-old executive, who once led operations at Goodison Park, suggests that with only one year left on Salah’s contract, it’s an opportune moment for Liverpool to profit from the 31-year-old Egyptian sensation.

“With one year left on his contract at 31, the numbers I’m hearing from Saudi sources are around £70million plus add-ons of around another £30million.”

“I believe those add-ons will be pretty achievable in the Saudi Pro League, in terms of goals and trophies.”

“I think Liverpool should do it this summer.”

“It’s a lot of money with just one year left, and it would be wise to take it right now.”

Salah has been a prime target for clubs in the Saudi Pro League since their ambitious footballing project emerged in 2022. Despite receiving offers from Saudi clubs last summer, Salah chose to remain at Anfield.

Nevertheless, with his contract up in the air and the possibility of a tempting offer, speculation about his future remains rampant.

Salah has once again demonstrated his worth this season with an impressive 24 goals and 13 assists in 41 appearances across various competitions. However, Klopp’s recent decision to rotate him out of the squad has sparked speculation about his future role at the club.

Wyness suggests that Liverpool should consider offers for Salah in the upcoming transfer window, citing potential financial benefits given his contractual situation.

However, replacing Salah’s goal-scoring prowess immediately would be a daunting task. It’s imperative to retain him and ensure his long-term commitment to the club, as his value extends beyond transfer considerations.

Salah’s contributions both on and off the pitch have endeared him to the club’s supporters, making him a talismanic figure synonymous with Liverpool.

His departure would undoubtedly leave a significant void in the team’s identity and aspirations.
