Paper Talk: Porto to cash in on Everton, West Ham target

Date published: Monday 2nd April 2018 9:30 - Robert McCarthy

Liverpool would prefer to sell Mo Salah to Barcelona over Real Madrid, while an Everton and West Ham target could be up grabs this summer, according to Monday’s papers.



Liverpool would reportedly rather sell Mohamed Salah to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid this summer.

The Egyptian star has turned the heads of both La Liga giants after scoring a remarkable 37 goals in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s men this season.

Real appear to be leading the chase for the 25-year-old, with reports in Spain claiming that the former Roma man favours a switch to the Bernabeu.

However, Diario Gol claims that Liverpool would much sooner sell Salah to Barca, given their interest in Nou Camp attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The report goes on to state that should the Reds lose their star man then they are confident that Dembele will move to Anfield as part of a player, plus cash swap deal.

Klopp is said to be a big admirer of the France star, whose potential arrival would soften the blow slightly of losing Salah, if indeed Liverpool are forced to part company with the attacker who is being strongly tipped to be crowned Player of the Year.
