Riyad Mahrez has revealed there was interest in him from Liverpool prior to the Reds’ signing of Mohamed Salah. The Algerian international told DZfoot (via Goal.com) about the Anfield club’s interest during an Live interview.

The 29-year-old said: “Before signing at City, there was an interest in Liverpool for me, but soon as they took Mo Salah, it was finished.” Mahrez ended up joining Pep Guardiola’s side from Leicester City in a deal reportedly worth £61.02m in July 2018 (via Transfermarkt.co.uk).

What do we think?

It’s clear that these fans believe the club made the right choice in opting to sign Salah over the former Leicester City star. The Egyptian has scored 91 goals and provided 37 assists in Liverpool colours since his arrival in the summer of 2017 from Roma – and in our view, that’s an impressive return that fully justifies the club’s decision.
