Liverpool poised to sign Dani Ceballos

Liverpool poised to sign Dani Ceballos

Egypt worldwide Salah has been a revelation for the Reds since moving to Anfield in the summer, scoring 23 goals in all competitions in the opening months of the campaign.

However, Salah's scintillating form should go some way in softening the blow of Coutinho's exit.

While drawing interest from Madrid, Salah's exploits for Liverpool - and previously at Roma - have also seen him crowned as the African Player of the Year for 2017.

And Juve are reportedly interested in adding him to their ranks, as they closely monitor the fringe player's development.

Coutinho has earned his dream move after distinguishing himself as a world-class attacker at Liverpool but has now left a gaping hole in the Reds' attack.

He told the Daily Mail: "They [Liverpool] are in a healthy position, with very, very good footballers".

Pep Guardiola: Manchester City boss and Tottenham's Harry Kane win awards
The Manchester City boss was named December's victor of the award, after also picking it up in September, October and November. Only eight Premier League managers have ever won more Manager of the Month awards.

The Brazilian is enjoying his best ever season for the Reds with 16 goals and a further eight assists in 30 appearances, better than his totals in his two previous full seasons with the club.

That number, of course, now belongs to Modric, but the Croatian is said to be considering a Madrid exit this summer, with a move to Italy or England mooted.

The sharks are already circling though with Real Madrid thought to be weighing up a bid for Salah after their rivals captured his former teammate.

Reports in Spain suggest that representatives from Merseyside have met with the player and are keen to finalise a deal this January.

Ceballos is unhappy with his first team chances and has warned Real president Florentino Perez and head coach Zinedine Zidane he could look to move on.

Mauro Icardi and Harry Kane are Real Madrid's top attacking targets as they attempt to end their current malaise, claims Diario Gol .
