Jurgen Klopp ‘interested’ in £52 million Mohamed Salah replacement from Borussia Dortmund

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly planning to raid his former club to find a replacement for Mohamed Salah.

After the strong interest from Saudi Professional League side Al Ittihad during the summer transfer window, Salah’s future remains uncertain.

However, Liverpool have been adamant from day one that their talisman was not for sale.

Planning ahead, it has been reported that Klopp is interested in raiding his former club Borussia Dortmund as he looks for potential replacements for Salah.

According to German news outlet BILD, Klopp is a huge fan of Dortmund forward Donyell Malen, who has had a promising start to the season after scoring four goals in seven matches.

It is believed that Klopp has held a long interest in Malen, dating back to the forward's time with PSV Eindhoven.

The report from BILD claimed that Malen could provide back-up for Salah or even be his long-term replacement.

However, Liverpool will reportedly have to fork out £52 million due to Malen’s current contract which is valid until 2026, meaning Dortmund are in a strong position to demand a high transfer fee.

Prior to his move to PSV, Malen spent time at the Arsenal academy from 2015 to 2017. During his time with the Dutch side, Malen managed an impressive 55 goals and 24 assists in 116 appearances.

However, Liverpool fans have spotted Malen’s injury record, which could be a concern for the Reds.

Back in the 19/20 season, Malen missed a total of 241 days after undergoing knee surgery.

During the 22/23 campaign, the Dutch international missed 31 days after suffering from a torn muscle fibre injury and ankle problems.
