According to Sjaak Swart, former Netherlands international and Ajax record appearance holder, Spanish Football Giants Barcelona have made Liverpool star Mohammed Salah their new major transfer target and the Egyptian international also wants the move to spain.
This report isn’t much of a surprise as Barça’s new boss Ronald Koeman, is actively seeking means to return the Catalonians to their glorious form that seems to have slipped in recent days.
Koeman was previously said to be making attempts at signing Georginio Wijnaldum who is in the final 12 months of his contract at Liverpool, his new rumored interest in Salah makes it seem like the Dutchman wants to raid liverpool for its best products.
Salah scored a hatrick as the Reds defeated Leeds United in a thrilling 4-3 season opener victory Saturday evening.
However, it appears that Messi staying at Camp Nou might make it difficult for Barça to raise funds for a Salah deal and Liverpool will most likely demand about £150m – £200m, for the star.
