Liverpool transfer news: Pundit can't believe Mohamed Salah could quit for PSG after news emerges
Alan Hutton has urged Mohamed Salah to snub a prospective move to Paris Saint-Germain to remain at Liverpool this summer.
The former Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, admitted he cannot see the 29-year-old quitting the Premier League to play in Ligue 1.
As reported by Spanish publication Sport on Saturday (2 April), PSG have made contact with Salah’s entourage with a firm proposal over a move to the French capital.
The French giants are reportedly willing to offer a big-money transfer fee to tempt Liverpool into selling, should Salah not sign a new contract.
As revealed by Football Insider (26 March), Liverpool are confident they will be able to convince the winger to agree terms.

As such, Hutton cannot see Salah making the move to Paris.
Discussing the possibility of Salah joining PSG, Hutton told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “It’s an interesting one. You look at some of the superstars at PSG like Mbappe running his contract down and wanting to leave.
“Does Salah want to go to PSG where I don’t think the league is as good. Compared to the Premier League, the standard’s not as high.
“Of course, you can go there and sign a big contract on big money. I’d like to think what Liverpool are offering is big as well. Financially, he’ll be absolutely fine and he’s still competing for trophies where he is.
“It is an interesting one, I do see the lure. I think where he is at this moment in time is a better fit for him.
“They’re competing. It’s not like they’re sitting mid-table so I would like him to stay where he is.”
