Xavi reportedly wants to bring Mohamed Salah to the Camp Nou "at all costs" and is eager to build the next great Barcelona team around the Egyptian superstar.

The new Barca boss has already made huge waves since his appointment by bringing back former teammate Dani Alves, and helped to lift the cloud of gloom over the Catalonian giants.

President Joan Laporta has come in for huge criticism in recent months following Lionel Messi's departure, but hopes that acquiring a player like Salah will restore some pride in his reputation.

The 29-year-old has been in electric form for the Reds this season, with 15 goals across 15 games in all competitions, including 7 in just 4 Champions League outings.

An article from Catalan-based publication El Nacional explains how Barcelona could make their move for the "Egyptian King."

His current contract at Anfield expires in June 2023, and the next summer transfer window is the last one in which the club can demand a fee for Salah.

The former AS Roma and Chelsea man has expressed his love for Liverpool in the past, but indicated it is not his decision as to whether or not he remains on Merseyside.

"If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can't say much about that - it's not in my hands," he told Sky Sports last month in quotes published by the Mirror.

"At the moment I can't see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It's hard, I don't want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad."

For the moment, Salah's focus will be firmly on Liverpool and their home clash with Arsenal on 20th November.

Jurgen Klopp's men head into the clash after suffering a first Premier League defeat of the season against West Ham United before the international break, and will be eager to reduce the four-point gap between themselves and league leaders Chelsea.
