Salah, who joined Liverpool back in 2017, has established himself as one of the best players in world football at Anfield and fired the Reds to Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory. He is just one goal away from Harry Kane’s tally of 21 league goals for the season in the race for the 2020/21 Golden Boot.
However, Salah has been linked with an exit from Liverpool over the last few months, with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona believed to be monitoring his situation. Now, a shock report from BILD in Germany suggests Chelsea have added Salah as a potential summer target to bolster their front line.
The 28-year-old was previously on Chelsea’s books from 2014 to 2016 and made 19 appearances for them, albeit spent most of his time out on loan in Italy. After failing to establish himself at Stamford Bridge, he kickstarted his career once again at AS Roma before eventually returning to England with Liverpool.
Thomas Tuchel’s Blues have reportedly added Salah to a list of three potential options for their attack, alongside Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland.
The Internazionale and Borussia Dortmund strikers have been in surreal form this season, with Lukaku leading the Nerazzurri to the title and Haaland helping Dortmund reach the UCL quarter-finals.
Should Chelsea fail to sign either of them, they could potentially look to bring Salah back to Stamford Bridge. The Liverpool attacker is currently contracted to the club until the summer of 2023.
Chelsea and Liverpool to compete for Jadon Sancho this summer
Jadon Sancho is another player who has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer, but reports have suggested that Liverpool as well as Manchester United are in the race for his signature. The English superstar has had a sensational time at Borussia Dortmund since moving from Manchester City and could be set for a move away from the club this summer.
Sancho could possibly be at the heart of a transfer battle this summer. Michael Zorc’s confirmation of a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ that could see him leave the club has further fuelled speculation over his potential departure.
