Liverpool FC are facing a battle to keep Mohamed Salah at Anfield this summer following his brilliant start to life at the Premier League club, according to reports in the British media.

As the transfer market exploded around them in the summer of 2017, the Reds invested just £36.9 million in a man who had previously flopped in England at Chelsea.

Salah's scintillating form has attracted the praise of former Liverpool and Australia star Harry Kewell, who backed the Egypt global to challenge Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d'Or trophy.

"Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been the two best players in the world for a long time, but Salah is putting himself in their company with his performances this season and that reality has consequences".

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been touted as possible destinations in recent days, meanwhile, with the 24-year-old nearly certain to be available to purchase on a free in a little over two months' time.

"That's what every footballer dreams of because that's the reward for the work".

What we know about the Miami bridge collapse
The pedestrian bridge, which was recently installed on March 10, collapsed down during the busy rush hours at Miami on Thursday. The National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter that it was sending a team to investigate the bridge collapse.

If he takes Liverpool close to Champions League success and then shines in the World Cup with Egypt, his status will rise to potentially unmanageable levels from Liverpool's perspective.

"Losing Salah would be a much bigger loss than losing Coutinho". If Salah continues this kind of scoring next season, they will be courting him.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, Emre Can's departure from Liverpool has all but been confirmed, with the German midfielder linked with the likes of Manchester City, Juventus Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

'I have the self-confidence to say that my qualities are sufficient to play in a very big club next season, ' Can said in an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitung, via the Liverpool Echo.

Ian Wright believes it will be hard for Mohamed Salah to turn down Real Madrid as he continues to star for Liverpool.
