Liverpool could have been hit for six come to the end of the current 2021-22 Premier League campaign after news broke that star forward Mohamed Salah announced that he has no intention to sign the current contract offer on the table at Anfield.
Despite his hard-line stance on what the Reds have currently tabled, Salah's priority remains that he would prefer to stay on Merseyside moving forward but refuses to budge on what he and his representatives deem fair value in terms of compensation.
Liverpool prepared for the worst
Should Liverpool end up losing Mohamed Salah this summer it would no doubt be a hammer blow to the club's ability to push growing Premier League rivals Manchester City for domestic supremacy. But thankfully for the Reds, the club has already begun to bring in long-term reinforcements that can fill the void should the Egyptian star depart Merseyside.
The signing of Luis Díaz has already been met with praise from all quarters of the fanbase as the Colombian forward has very much hit the ground running in terms of what he can offer Jürgen Klopp on the pitch.
Harvey Elliot's continued development is also a source of positivity as the 18-year-old England youth international is ahead of the curve despite his tender years.
The Reds also has a considerable interest in West Ham United's Jarrod Bowen after the English winger has been one of the leading figures for David Moyes' Hammers who have pushed ahead in their project to join the elite ranks in the Premier League of late.
With Diogo Jota already proving his worth in spades this season as one of the club's leading sources of goals, a potential loss of Salah could be mitigated expertly should the situation remain untenable.
