English giants Liverpool are considering a move for Ghana and West Ham United midfielder Mohammed Kudus ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been earmarked as a replacement for Mohamed Salah, who has been on the radar of Saudi giants Al-Ittihad since last summer.

The Saudi Pro League side are preparing an offer that Liverpool can't resist in an attempt to persuade their talismanic forward to join them this summer.

According to Fichajes, the Saudi club who saw their earlier offer of €150 million rejected are set to make another big move while Liverpool set sights on Kudus.

With Jurgen Klopp set to leave at the end of the season, Salah could follow suit as the club rebuilds with the younger players around.

At 32, Salah is heading towards the twilight of his career and a move to Saudi seems ideal with the likes of Sadio Mane, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ivan Rakitic all in the Gulf.

Meanwhile, Kudus has been a sensation in his first season in England, starring for the Hammers across all competitions. He has netted 13 goals already for the club, per Transfermarkt.

Kudus shares admiration for Barcelona

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Mohammed Kudus disclosed his love for Spanish giants Barcelona, insisting he supported the club while starting his career.

The Ghana and West Ham United star grew up watching the Blaugranas and their talismanic forward Lionel Messi, a player he idolises.

Before moving to England, there were reports Barcelona were interested in the then-Ajax midfielder.

Salah to play at the Olympic Games

Sports Brief also reported that Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah disclosed his desire to represent Egypt at the Olympic Games in Paris in the summer.

The Egypt U23 team qualified for the multi-sport competition after finishing as runners-up at the Africa U23 Cup of Nations last year.

According to the Olympic Games rule, per Foot The Ball, three overage players are allowed to be included in the squad for men's football.
