Saudis target Salah and Alisson

It may be no surprise that there is renewed interest in Mohamed Salah, but Alisson Becker is also in demand as we prepare for a busy summer transfer window.

According to The Guardian, “it is understood there are also plans to increase competitiveness in the league by attracting private businesses to sponsor clubs who are not backed by the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF).

The quota for foreign players in the Pro League has been extended from eight to 10 for next season, although two of those must be under the age of 21. That means most clubs will have to make room for any new signings by moving players, with league officials keen to improve the overall strength of the competition by helping some of the smaller clubs to improve their squads.”

Al-Ittihad made an unsuccessful £150m bid for Salah last summer, but its looking a lot more likely he will leave this time around, while several clubs are considering a move for Alisson.
