Ian Wright believes it will be hard for Mohamed Salah to turn down Real Madrid as he continues to star for Liverpool, and with many believing Gareth Bale's days numbered in Spain, that knock at the Anfield door could come soon.

The Brazilian-born Italy worldwide, who now has three caps to his name, has notched two goals and four assists for Napoli this season, making 26 league appearances in the process.

The Italian champions have been courting him since last January, and Liverpool have been looking at Serie A for replacements. But Real Madrid and Barcelona, who could be prepared to pay big money, will surely want to see another year from Salah.

The Anfield star has scored 29 Premier League goals this season, making fans the world over dream of having him play for their team.

Juventus are said to be the ones who are leading the race for the former Bayer Leverkusen man.

In addition, he appears to be a very level headed guy who has not allowed the success that has come his way this season to go to his head, so he could probably handle the pressures of playing for a big club like Real Madrid.

But beyond insisting he wants to play for a "very big club" that "has the prospect of winning the title", Can is ruling nothing out - with even staying right he is among the options on the table.

"It is hard because I don't run Liverpool Football Club and I am not involved in the finance, but I would offer him a new contract straight away".

Liverpool Football Club remain adamant today that Mohamed Salah will not be sold to Real Madrid or anyone else in the summer.

Yet German journalist Raphael Honigstein has claimed Salah was not Klopp's top Liverpool target back in the summer.

The Times report that Klopp wanted fellow countryman Julian Brandt in the summer window, but Liverpool couldn't strike a deal and they had to look elsewhere.
