Liverpool are set to ‘ramp up’ their interest in Manchester United target Mohamed Salah, according to reports.

Metro claims Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is preparing to submit an official £9million offer for the player amidst interest from a number of European clubs.

AC Milan, Atletico Madrid and AS Monaco are all reportedly chasing the Egyptian international, whilst the Red Devils have also been credited with an interest in the past.

It’s Liverpool who appear set to come to the table however, as Rodgers looks to add to his title-challenging squad.

The Reds have shocked many so far this season, and the Anfield outfit are only six points off top spot in the Premier League.

Adding some depth to the squad could be crucial if Liverpool are to sustain their push at the top of the table, and Salah would add some additional quality on the flanks.

His arrival could also see Raheem Sterling leave Merseyside on loan, according to the paper.

Manchester United were plotting a move for Salah - as well as Basle teammate Fabian Schar - back in December, according to reports.

However, manager David Moyes appears set to miss out once again, with the Scot struggling to make his mark in either the transfer window or on the pitch for the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

After missing out on a number of top targets in the summer, the Manchester United boss has struggled to follow in the footsteps of Sir Alex Ferguson this season, and some January signings could reignite the club's chances of a top four finish.

Moyes may have to move quickly if he wants to beat Liverpool to Salah though.
