Liverpool 'consider shock Mo Salah sale with Juventus star Federico Chiesa lined up as transfer replacement' | The Sun

January 24, 2023

LIVERPOOL are plotting a move for Juventus star Federico Chiesa, according to reports.

And they want to bring him to Anfield to replace Mohamed Salah.


The Egypt international has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, seven of which have come in the Champions League.

But he's struggled to hit the heights of previous years for the Reds and has struck just seven times in the Premier League.

Salah's in danger of failing to hit 20 league goals for just the second time since he arrived on Merseyside in 2017.

And Italian outlet Calciomercato claim Liverpool are considering selling him and signing Juventus winger Chiesa in his place.

The funds made from Salah's sale would go towards trying to sign the 25-year-old.

This comes despite Chiesa only recently recovering from an ACL injury which kept him out for around 10 months.

Prior to his layoff, he'd been in excellent form following his arrival in Turin in 2020.

And his club performances have helped him become a regular on the international stage, notably starring in Italy's Euro 2020 triumph.
