A new report in Spain has suggested that Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is keen on a move away from the Premier League, with a switch to LaLiga in mind. 

Jurgen Klopp's side is said to have been "given orders" by Salah and his camp to listen to any bids from FC Barcelona as he is open to a new challenge, according to El Nacional.

Per the report, the Egyptian forward is "in favour of changing" should the right transfer bid come through, with the player believed to be eager to try out a new league he has not played in before.

It is further claimed that the former Chelsea and AS Roma attacker prefers a move to Spain and that Real Madrid would have been a likely destination, but their priorities now are to attain Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland's signatures. 

Liverpool are understood to be in the process of offering Salah a bumper new deal after a number of his teammates, including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, and Alisson Becker, were awarded new contracts recently, but the Egypt talisman is yet to sign on any dotted line.

The two-time African Footballer of the Year, whose current contract with the Reds is set to expire in June 2023, has a market value of €100 million (R1.7 billion), according to Transfermarkt, but the Anfield club may be tempted to sell him to Barca for cheaper next year rather than lose him for free in 2023.

The 29-year-old is in scintillating form, having scored eight goals in eight matches across all competitions for Liverpool already this season.
