Liverpool has rebuffed a verbal offer from the Saudi Pro League regarding the potential signing of Mohamed Salah.
The proposal, which exceeded £100 million and included significant add-ons, received no deliberation and was promptly declined.
The approach was made by representatives of Al Ittihad during a friendly conversation with Liverpool director Mike Gordon on a Thursday night.

However, Liverpool has firmly reiterated that the 31-year-old forward is not available for transfer and considers the matter closed.
Despite this, the Saudis are expected to maintain their strong interest in acquiring Salah.
Last summer, Salah signed a new three-year contract with Liverpool, which made him the highest-paid player in the club’s history, earning approximately £350,000 per week.
Salah, who scored 30 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season, was recently appointed to the club’s leadership group by manager Jurgen Klopp.
In the current season, he has already featured in three matches for Liverpool and scored a goal in the home victory over Bournemouth last month.
