Mohamed Salah could be the alternative to Antoine Griezmann in the summer window if Barcelona fails to land the French attacker.
According to AS report, the Egyptian player has been offered to Barcelona by his representatives and they are ready to open negotiations.
There have been meetings between the two parties with the objective being to evaluate his future and the possibility of a move to the Camp Nou.
Barcelona, who are also speaking with Antoine Griezmann's people, are keen to reinforce the attacking position in any way they can despite the arrival of Ousmane Dembele last summer when Neymar left for PSG.
Salah would be the best possible alternative to Griezmann.
The Egyptian was named the best player in the Premier League last season and was the top scorer with 32 goals.
He was impressive in the Champions League too, guiding Liverpool to the final before they fell to Real Madrid where he was injured in the first half. In addition, he has helped Egypt to the World Cup as their shining light.
Liverpool will request in excess of €100 million and the Reds have reportedly already landed Nabil Fekir, a Frenchman in the mold of Salah.
If Fekir does arrive and is seen as a Salah replacement, the next step would be to listen to offers and this is where Barca come in. They already know that the player would be interested in a move but are trying to assess how much a deal would cost to convince Liverpool.
