Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is not looking happy at Anfield at the moment and could seal a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the winter transfer window in January 2019.
According to The Mirror report quoting Arsenal legend Paul Merson, believes the Reds chief will not be able to stop the Egyptian star from making the switch to Santiago Bernabeu.
Merson made these claims while reviewing the performance of the 26-year-old Salah, who has emerged the fastest Liverpool player to hit the 50 goals landmark for the Reds just after 65 matches.
The Pharaohs playmaker Salah, has not been in his best form in recent time since the new campaign, scored three goals in his last two matches.
In midweek, Salah netted twice against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, few days after scoring the decider for the Jürgen Klopp side in their slim 1-0 win over Huddersfield in the EPL.
However, Merson insists the Egyptian may be heading to Real Madrid from the Merseyside, in the coming transfer window.
Writing in his column in the UK Daily Star, the Gunners legend stressed that Salah's goalscoring record was "phenomenal", but was quick to noted that it was "only a matter of time" before the Los Blancos will seek for his services.
"How can they not? They need to do something big and they will want him in January. They are struggling like mad. If Salah wanted to go, Liverpool would be powerless to stop him.
"I can't remember the last player to say 'no' to Real Madrid or Barcelona. It's another level. Salah doesn't look happy at Liverpool at the moment and we've seen this before.
"If you take his goals away they're not title contenders any more. Liverpool fans have seen big players leave before. They would be fuming if Salah left too," Merson submitted.
