Liverpool Have Identified Winger Ibrahim Adel As A Potential Transfer Target For The Future

The Merseyside giants have always been well stocked up for attack-minded players under Jurgen Klopp, and it is an area which has been significantly strengthened throughout 2022.

Liverpool signed Luis Diaz from Porto in January, a deal which has proved to be an overwhelming success, before Darwin Nunez arrived from Benfica during the summer.

The Premier League giants also ensured that they got a new long-term contract over the line for Mohamed Salah, keeping the Egyptian tied to Anfield until 2025.

Nevertheless, it now appears that Liverpool are already giving consideration to trying to sign a player who has been tipped to emulate his legendary fellow countryman.

According to 90min, Liverpool officials are keeping track of the development of Adel, who currently represents Pyramids in his homeland.

The report claims that scouts have already been assessing the ability of the 21-year-old with the view of possibly making a formal approach in the future.

Salah is also said to have provided the lowdown on his compatriot, who joined him on the international scene last year.

Although Adel was not present in the most recent Egypt squad, four caps have been earned since last September, the most recent coming in June.

Adel participated in the Olympic Games last year, being introduced from the substitutes’ bench in each group game before Egypt bowed out to Brazil at the quarter-final stage.

In terms of domestic action, Adel has spent his professional career at Pyramids, contributing 22 goals and nine assists from his 78 appearances in all competitions.

The report adds that Adel, who has previously attracted interest from Danish side Nordsjaelland, is valued in the region of £15m.

While he possesses a contract at Pyramids until 2026, his terms are unlikely to hinder any switch to a top European club providing that a team is prepared to meet his asking price.
