Barcelona are reportedly eyeing Liverpool star Mohamed Salah as a potential replacement for Ousmane Dembele, who is wanted by Tottenham ahead of the summer.
According to ASXavi Hernandez is keen to step up Barcelona’s attack beyond Raphinha in the transfer window. The Leeds United forward is set to join the La Liga giants after personal terms were agreed for the Brazil international this weekend.
According to the report, while Dembele’s form has improved tremendously in recent weeks, there is still a strong chance the winger will leave Barcelona this summer and Salah is seen as the dream replacement for the Catalan side.
The Liverpool superstar’s future remains up in the air as the Merseyside club continue to fight to tie the winger to a new contract, with Salah’s current contract expiring in 2023, and this has seemingly alarmed players at Barcelona.
The Egyptian winger, hailed as ‘extraordinary’ by Ian Wright, is regarded by many as the best player in world football this season and Barcelona are ready to sack a player they signed for a reported £136 millionSalah could be the best possible replacement this summer.
Indeed, Salah’s future with Liverpool is becoming more of a concern by the day and with Barcelona ready to target the attacker if Dembele heads to Tottenham for a rumored move, Anfield players should be worried about what happens this summer will come.
