Liverpool could have a fight on their hands to keep Mohamed Salah at Anfield as Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has made the Egypt international his top transfer target.
The new Barca manager is determined to make the shock signing as he looks to restore the La Liga giants to their former glory.
One of Koeman’s closes friends claims the Dutchman wants Salah and not Sadio Mane at the Nou Camp.
Sjaak Swart, a former Holland international who is Ajax’s record appearance holder, told website voetbalzone.nl:
“I know Koeman wants him – and I know Salah would like to go.”
When pressed to reveal the source of his information, Swart added:
“I am not going into any more details, but just believe me that I know.”
