Did you know that a blue whale’s tongue weighs as much as an elephant? But you don’t care about that do you. You’ve already skipped ahead to make sure Salah’s staying, haven’t you? Here’s today’s Liverpool transfer gossip…
Right, so these Mohamed Salah to Saudi links are still going. Spanish outlet Relevo say Al Ittihad plan to make him the world’s highest paid player (ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo), while even David Ornstein is among those to have since since backed up the interest of Fabinho’s new club.
Has everyone just forgotten that Salah’s agent literally shut down talk of a transfer this month?
The Telegraph say the Reds have not received an official approach for Salah and would not welcome one.
Fabrizio Romano, meanwhile, claims that while Liverpool have zero intention of selling, Salah hasn’t shut down Al Ittihad’s interest either.
At least Dejan Lovren knows it’s all nonsense…
In case Salah leaves, Liverpool are planning to bring in Federico Chiesa (Juventus) or Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich) next year, according to Calciomercato. Read more on that here.

Meanwhile, Ben Jacobs has suggested Hincapie is a potential option for Liverpool, while claiming Tottenham and West Ham have also run the numbers on him.
