Mohamed Salah looked to be in high spirits as he snapped a selfie with Philippe Coutinho as the speculation about the Liverpool playmaker’s future continues.

Coutinho’s situation at Anfield has been a source of relentless debate in recent weeks as the 25-year-old continues to be touted as a possible target for Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

That speculation is likely to heighten after Barcelona lost one of their key attackers as Neymar signed for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record transfer deal on Thursday.

Salah is one of three new arrivals at Anfield ahead of the new season, with Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke also having signed for the Reds this summer.

And the Egypt international seemed to be in a good mood as he posed for a picture with Coutinho on Friday.

Salah posed the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “🔴🔴⚽️”

Liverpool will take on Hoffenheim in the Champions League play-off round later this month as they look to book their place in the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term, which was Jurgen Klopp’s first full campaign in charge.
