Graeme Souness fears that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane could be tempted away from Liverpool if the right offer comes along from Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Salah and Mane finished as joint-top goalscorers in the Premier League with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also finishing the season on 22 goals.

And that form has seen them linked with a move to La Liga and Souness reckons that they could have their heads turned just like former Liverpool players Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.

“Real Madrid and Barcelona will be sniffing round Salah and Mane and I think one of them will be targeted this summer,” Souness told

“Both of those clubs are in the process of rebuilding and they tend to tempt any player when they go after them.

“We saw that in the past with Luiz Suarez and Philippe Coutinho and even though they enjoyed playing for Liverpool, their heads were turned when Barcelona wanted them. That will happen again now with Salah and Mane.”
