Mohamed Salah's agent Ramy Abbas has shot down speculation linking Liverpool's Mohamed Salah with a shock move to the Saudi Pro League.

Fans were shocked late on Sunday night after reading reports that Liverpool were once again being targeted by the great Saudi Arabian football exodus, with club legend Salah the next ambitious target from Al-Ittihad.

Unlike previous transfer windows, the saga of this summer hasn't been about just one player, but an entire league. Saudi Arabia have an endless pot of money for singings and have been taking full advantage of their financial sway.

Until recently, Liverpool were largely unaffected by this Middle East movement – discounting Roberto Firmino's move to Al Ahli at the end of his contract – but just like London buses, the offers began to arrive in abundance around a month ago.

Club captain Jordan Henderson joined up with Steven Gerrard at Al-Ettifaq, Fabinho made the Saudi Arabian switch soon after, Luis Diaz was subject to an insulting £50m offer, and now Salah is the latest to be linked with a move away.

As previously reported, an unnamed source close to Salah revealed the Egyptian had been offered a staggering £155m in wages for two seasons, and that an exceptionally low £60m bid was being prepared by Al-Ittihad.

However, Salah's agent Ramy Abbas Issa silenced the worrying rumours.

He said: "If we considered leaving Liverpool this year, we wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer. Mohamed remains committed to LFC."

Simple, concise and definitive. Salah is going nowhere this summer and remains committed to the club.

The 31-year-old's attention will instead be on Liverpool's final pre-season friendly against Darmstadt on Monday night, as he and the club gear up for the all-important 2023/24 campaign.
