Liverpool’s youngsters impressed once again as they beat Southampton 3-0 in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday. 

18-year-old Lewis Koumas – the son of former Wigan Athletic star Jason – put the Reds ahead before the break with a deflected effort, despite the Saints creating a number of good chances in the opening exchanges.

Jayden Danns, whose father Neil played for several teams including Crystal Palace, replaced Koumas and then netted his first senior goal before adding a second late on.

The win has set up a quarter-final tie against rivals Manchester United, and manager Jurgen Klopp will be eyeing another trophy for his collection.

In the meantime, Liverpool’s asking price for talisman Mohamed Salah has been revealed.

As per Football Insider, the Merseyside outfit would demand a fee in excess of £100 million to consider selling the Egyptian this summer.

Salah is expected to be the subject of more interest from Saudi Arabia this summer

Salah was the subject of a £150 million offer from Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad last year, and the Pro League outfit are expected to reignite their interest this summer.

The Egypt international signed a contract extension in 2022 but that deal is set to expire at the end of next season, when Liverpool may risk losing the forward for free.

Salah, 31, joined the Reds from Italian side Roma in 2017 and has since scored a remarkable 205 goals in 333 games for the club across all competitions, as well as registering 89 assists.

This season the former Chelsea man has netted 19 times, including 15 goals in the Premier League.

The report claims that Liverpool will only consider selling Salah this summer for a fee that will allow them to sign a quality replacement.

Wolves star Pedro Neto is named as one of the players that Liverpool could target, with the Portuguese set to be available for a fee in the region of £50-60 million.
