Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad are once again interested in signing Mohamed Salah, sources told The Athletic's David Ornstein.

However, the Reds insist the Egyptian forward isn't for sale, according to The Athletic's James Pearce.

Earlier in August, the Saudi club seemed prepared to offer Liverpool £60 million and Salah an astronomical salary of around £155 million over the next two years.

The player's agent denied the speculation, saying the 31-year-old wouldn't have signed a new contract with Liverpool if he had any desire to leave.

Salah rubber-stamped a three-year deal last summer that pays him a club-record £350,000 per week.

Premier League and Champions League winners Jordan Henderson and Fabinho left Liverpool this summer for Al-Ettifaq and Al-Ittihad. Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard coaches Al-Ettifaq.

Al-Ittihad, coached by former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo, count Karim Benzema and N'Golo Kante as their big-money acquisitions.
