Mohamed Salah’s agent has dismissed rumours the player has handed in a transfer request following a supposed exchange with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Egyptian’s agent was quick to refute claims that appeared in the press suggesting Salah could leave this Liverpool this summer.

Will Salah leave Liverpool this summer? Five key things to know…

  1. Salah signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2017 for €42 from Roma
  2. The player’s current contract expires in 2023.
  3. Salah has played the best football of his career under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
  4. Sources from abroad claimed Salah had handed in a transfer request.
  5. But the Egyptian’s agent has denied the claims.

Salah has been linked with reigning Serie A champions Juventus on multiple occasions this year.

But even so, it would be a huge shock if the Liverpool striker were to leave Anfield this summer. Salah has been in superb form since he began working under Klopp, hitting an incredible 51 goals in 70 Premier League appearances.

The striker is a key player at the club, having formed a unique relationship with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Combined, the three players have scored over 100 goals since the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

It therefore appeared highly unlikely that Salah would request to leave a club where he is potentially about to win the double and has already made himself a legend with the fans.

And Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, posted a tweet appearing to dismiss the claim made by Spanish website AS, writing: “Talking out of their AS again I see.”

Liverpool are currently leading the Premier League and are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League along with Ajax, Tottenham and Barcelona.

This could be the best chance Liverpool have at winning the competition and avenging their defeat to Real Madrid in last season’s final.

Can Liverpool win the Premier League this season?

The Reds are leading the English top flight heading into the final four matches. They are top of the table by two points above Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Liverpool face Cardiff (a), Huddersfield (h), Newcastle (a) before finishing up the campaign with a home game against Wolves at Anfield.

Manchester City will know that if they win their final five matches they will be champions, but the ‘Centurions’ of last season will be smarting following their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Tottenham.

In their final five games, City face Tottenham (h), Manchester United (a), Burnley (a), Leicester (h) and a trip to the south coast to take on Brighton on the final day.

Liverpool will be confident that City will drop points in at least one of their remaining games, opening a window for the Reds to take the title.
