Mohamed Salah has exceeded all expectations since joining Liverpool from AS Roma back in 2017.

The Egyptian forward completed a £34 million move to the Reds and has scored a magnificent 66 goals in 97 appearances for the Merseyside outfit so far.

He also broke the record for most goals in a 38-game Premier League season last term, netting 32 goals, while simultaneously inspiring Liverpool to the Champions League final.

Salah, who has scored 19 league goals this season, is now hoping to win a Premier League winners’ medal with Liverpool.

If that happens, it’s safe to say that he will go down as an Anfield legend.

However, a worrying report from Spanish newspaper AS was published on Wednesday afternoon, which claims the Egypt international is demanding a transfer out of the club following disagreements with Jurgen Klopp.

AS are usually one of Spain’s more reliable sources, which makes the story all the more surprising.

The report claims that Liverpool officials have managed to talk Salah out of submitting a formal transfer request - in order to avoid an unwanted situation at such an important stage of the season - but will consider facilitating the transfer at the end of the season if the 26-year-old is still determined to leave the club.

AS suggest that Salah is not currently one of Zinedine Zidane’s transfer targets - unlike last summer - but that Real Madrid may submit an offer if the player is determined to leave his current employers.

If this happens - and it’s a huge if, admittedly - this would mean he’ll be sharing a dressing room with Sergio Ramos, the player he fell out with following last season’s Champions League final in Kiev.

It seems a bizarre time for this story to emerge.

Is it an attempt by the Spanish media to unsettle Liverpool and Salah ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against FC Porto?

You certainly wouldn’t rule it out.

Or is the report actually accurate?

It’s currently unclear at this stage - but one thing’s for sure: we haven’t heard the last of this developing story.

Meanwhile, Salah's representative Ramy Abbas Issa has played down the reports with the following tweet...
