According to the latest news in Italian media, Real Madrid are ready to step up their attention in Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah after Barcelona finished a deal to sign Philippe Coutinho.
As reported by Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Zinedine Zidane’s side want to make a shock in the transfer market after their La Liga rivals splashed the cash.
Coutinho completed his long-awaited move to Barcelona earlier in the window and the 25-year-old Brazilian only boost the Catalan side’s chances of securing another La Liga trophy this season.
Madrid trail the Catalan giants by 16 points in La Liga, amid concerns about Zidane’s long-term future at the club.
The report proposes that Los Blancos have been keeping a keen eye on Salah’s improvement for some time.
Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard are also thought to be under deliberation from the Spanish giants.
However, Salah is seen as the contemptible out of the three possible transfer targets.
Madrid are known for their ‘Galactico’ signings and will be hoping to add to their squad after missing out on Kylian Mbappe during the summer.
