LIVERPOOL will reportedly target Real Madrid superstar Rodrygo next year if Mo Salah leaves for Saudi Arabia.
The Reds are keeping their eye on the 22-year-old winger who may be falling down Carlo Ancelotti‘s pecking order.

Salah was courted by Al-Ittihad during the final days of the summer transfer window for a mammoth £170million – but the Reds swiftly declined the offer.
One reason Liverpool were reluctant to sell the Egyptian star was the lack of time to source a replacement.
If Salah is open to a switch to Saudi in January, the Reds can expect renewed interest in the new year for their main man.
Klopp is keen on Brazilian ace Rodrygo who will enter the final year of his contract at Real next year and will be available to purchase.
There is a catch however as Ancelotti’s side will be asking for a big price and are willing to listen offers that exceed the mark of £86.5million, according to Todo Fichajes.
A price tag that is half of what the Saudi’s have said to be willing to pay for Salah.
This comes as Los Blancos are expecting the arrival of Kylian Mbappe next season and are not prepared to sell their star winger Vinicius Junior.
He has since become a key part of the Madrid team – winning the La Liga title in his debut season and incredibly scoring a goal in his first match within a minute.
The superstar has racked up 171 appearances and scored 38 goals as well as winning two La Liga’s, a Champions League and a Copa del Rey during his four years at the club.
But the reports claims his start to this La Liga campaign has been “inconsistent” with Brahim Diaz potentially being Ancelotti’s preferred option.
This may be the perfect chance for the Reds to swoop in a snatch the Brazilian who they have had their eyes on since his days at Santos.
