Chelsea are reportedly interested in re-signing Mohamed Salah in the summer transfer window from rivals Liverpool.
According to reputed German journalist Christian Falk, Mohamed Salah is the subject of interest from Chelsea over a move in the summer transfer window. The Blues are eyeing the Liverpool forward as a potential alternative for Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku.
Salah has gone on to establish himself as one of the very best in the game since joining Liverpool from AS Roma in the summer of 2017. Over the last four years, he has been the leading light for the Reds, winning the Premier League Golden Boot in two of his three completed seasons till date while also playing a key role in their triumph in England and Europe.
Till date, Salah has a fabulous record of 123 goals and 45 assists in 198 appearances for Liverpool. His exploits have invariably attracted some of the biggest clubs in Europe, with Chelsea the latest entrants in the race to swoop him away from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea’s interest in re-signing Salah, who previously spent a couple of years with the Blues, does make sense on a theoretical level. After all, not only is the Liverpool star well accustomed to the challenges of the Premier League while also being a solution to their attacking woes this season, with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech blowing hot and cold.
To that end, Salah could come in to seamlessly fit into the Chelsea attack, with Christian Falk suggesting the Liverpool star is being viewed as a potential alternative to Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku, who feature high on their wishlist.
Salah, meanwhile, is also being courted by PSG, meaning Chelsea will need to act fast in order to secure the services of Salah this summer. However, swooping him away from Liverpool could well be a tall order, considering it is highly unlikely that Salah will be allowed to join a direct rival in the Premier League.
For now, though, it appears as if Salah has emerged as a potential target for Chelsea, who are keen on bolstering their attack this summer. It will be interesting to see if the Blues can convince Liverpool to part ways with their star forward, who will then seal a return to Stamford Bridge.
