Jurgen Klopp allegedly willing to sell Mohamed Salah for £70m goal-machine

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is allegedly willing to sell Mohamed Salah this summer, providing that the Champions League winners complete the signing of Lille winger Nicolas Pepe.

The Ivory Coast international is being targeted by a whole host of top European clubs as a result of 22 goals and 11 assists being contributed in Ligue 1 this season.

There has been a suggestion that Liverpool have pulled out of the race for the 24-year-old, who would cost in the region of £70m, although it has now been claimed that the Merseyside giants may be happy to sell one of their stars in order to accommodate the signing.

According to Le10sport, Klopp is prepared to part ways with Salah if it means being able to win the race for Pepe’s signature.

A departure for Salah appears highly unlikely given his return of 71 goals from 104 appearances in two years at Anfield, but it is alleged that the Egyptian and his manager have not always seen eye to eye in previous months.

Salah still has four years left on his contract at the Premier League runners-up.
