Sources: Liverpool hold internal talks over selling Mo Salah for £50M+ fee

Mo Salah becomes Liverpool's 2022 player of the year

Liverpool are having internal talks and are even considering selling Salah to raise funds for upcoming signings in the summer transfer window.

The Merseyside are planning a major overhaul on the back and that could include the departure of the Egyptian superstar.

Liverpool FC owners Fenway Sports Group, run the club on a self-sustainable basis and that means a series of expensive signings will include some departures.

Sadio Mane was sold last summer to pave the way for the club-record Darwin Nunez signing and it will require a similar star departure to enable Jurgen Klopp to kick-start a new era.

Jude Bellingham is the prime target of the Reds according to reports. The England international’s market value is $222M according to CIES. To raise such funds during these financial difficulties the Reds need to sell a player who is worth more than £50M.

Is Liverpool actually selling Salah?

This list includes Salah, Luis Diaz, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson, and, Nunez.

Mo Salah came first on the list because he is the most valuable player for the Merseyside giants. The Egyptian signed a new three-year contract last summer worth nearly £400,000 a week and has had a mixed campaign.

Mo has played 20 matches in the Premier League where he scored has 7 goals and registered 4 assists so far. The Egyptian has an expected xG of 9.2 and an expected xAG of 3.7 as per FBref.

Although his performance has declined from than previous season, still the Liverpool forward remains an ace goal-poacher and a consistent threat to opposition’s defense. However, the 30-year-old has lost a little of his blistering pace.

Moreover, his durability and availability are remarkable, and this sale won’t be profitable as well as favorable for the English giants. As par fans point of view, the Reds already regret selling Mane to Bayern.

Only perhaps Nat Phillips and Caolmhim Kelleher are among the non-regulars who would secure £10million-plus fees.

However, this is certainly not a good idea to sell the Egyptian, who just had 1 bad season so far since his arrival. Who knows if he could soon turn it around?
