Atletico Madrid are reportedly considering shock summer move for Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah in January.

Egypt international only joined the Merseyside Reds in the summer. However, his blistering start to life at Anfield has caught an eye from European giants including Atletico Madrid.

A brace in Saturday’s 4-1 victory over the Hammers took his Premier League record up to seven in 11 appearances since his transfer from AS Roma, with only Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero having found the net more often in the English top-tier.

El Gol Digital claims that La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are now lining up a big money move for the Reds winger once their transfer ban expires in January and planning to offer £50m to lure Salah away from Anfield.

The Spanish outfit is claiming that a swap deal for Yannick Carrasco, although is a possibility that the Reds would be unwilling to consider such an arrangement.

Atletico have drawn five of their opening 11 La Liga games to sit fourth in the table, while Liverpool are fifth in the Premier League.
