Liverpool are considering to sign in Israeli star Moanes Dabour but that could create large ripples across the footballing world and the political nature associated with it.
According to FootballWhispers, The Reds are keen on getting hands on the forward and chief scout Barry Hunter is even said to have been over to Austria to scout the player, who has netted 33 times in 65 games for Salzburg.
The 26-year-old has netted three times in 12 appearances for his national team since making his international debut in 2014.
Liverpool have a history of buying Jewish players, with the likes of Avi Cohen, Ronny Rosenthal and Yossi Benayoun starring at Anfield.
The Jerusalem Post are one of a number of outlets to claim that Egyptian superstar Salah could end his time at Liverpool if the move for Dabour happened.
Back in 2014 Salah was said to have refused to shake the hands of Maccabi Tel Aviv players when they took on his then side FC Basel. It became a major talking point in Swiss football with the notion he was placed under pressure by public opinion in his home country not to shake hands.
In the first leg he moved to the side of the pitch and changed his boots while the pre-match handshakes took place. A week later in the second leg in Tel Aviv, he offered a fist-pump rather than a handshake to Maccabi players.
It is believed that political pressure from Egypt could play a key role in how this transfer rumour transpires.
