Report: Arsenal want Ibrahim Adel; Salah's recommended him to Liverpool
Arsenal want Ibrahim Adel, the Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah has recommended to the Liverpool hierarchy, according to a report from 90min.
Adel is attracting attention from a host of Premier League sides. The 21-year-old plays for Pyramids FC in his home country. And he has scored 22 goals and contributing nine assists in 78 games in all competitions.
90min reports that there is a belief that he is the brightest talent to emerge from the country since Salah. And the Reds star himself is well aware of his potential.
Arsenal want Ibrahim Adel
The report claims that Salah has made sure that Liverpool know of Adel. And they are one of the sides who could make a move for the youngster during the January transfer window.
According to 90min, Arsenal, Brentford, Brighton and Nottingham Forest also want the forward.
Should he secure a move, he could then be loaned out until he qualifies for a work permit.
Gunners may face uphill battle
Arsenal may face an uphill battle trying to sign Adel should Liverpool indeed make a move. Clearly, moving to Anfield and potentially getting the chance to play alongside Salah is likely to really appeal to the starlet.
But the Gunners are building an incredibly exciting squad, full of extremely talented youngsters. Their recruitment has been absolutely outstanding in the last couple of years.
So a move to the Emirates may also be something that Adel would be very interested in.
However, there is a lot of competition for his signature. Clubs such as Brighton and Brentford are extremely forward-thinking. And Forest have done some superb business in recent months.
So it is going to be a very interesting race in the coming windows.
