According to Christian Falk of BILD’s Daily Briefing, Koné’s return from injury may make him available at a reduced price. Gladbach anticipates an offer from Liverpool, possibly around $38 million (£30 million/€35 million), which is a significantly lower price than the previous valuation of approximately $54 million (£43 million/€50 million). PSG’s ongoing interest has the potential to make the rivalry more intense in the event that Liverpool formally enters the contest.
Although Liverpool has recently acquired Wataru Endō, it would not be detrimental to acquire another player for the midfield position. However, it is important to ensure that this does not interfere with the club’s prospective future purchases, which are of utmost importance, such as their pursuit of Moisés Caicedo.
With regard to Mohamed Salah, there have been indications that indicate his willingness to join Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia, on the condition that a salary package is purportedly agreed upon. On the other hand, Liverpool is the one who will ultimately make the decision, and they have no plans to sell Salah at this time. In light of the fact that Salah is an important player for Liverpool, it is inconceivable that the club would suffer the loss of Salah during this transfer window.
Despite the fact that Salah might be tempted by a lucrative contract, it would be unsatisfying for him to prioritize financial gain over the opportunity to compete in one of the most prestigious and competitive competitions. Liverpool places a high priority on maintaining stability and continuity within the club, and they are hoping for a speedy confirmation that will rule out any prospective move from Salah’s own end.
