The Saudi Pro League are ready to spend around £2 billion and have made Premier League players like Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min their priority targets.
The Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham stars are the latest to be linked with a move to the Middle East, as they look to attract more big names to the league, Ben Jacobs reports.
Salah almost left last summer but the Reds refused to do business while De Bruyne was earmarked as a possible signing earlier this season.
The Saudi Arabia dealmakers are optimistic they can lure the 31-year-old but landing him this summer is no guarantee.
De Bruyne will also not be an easy signing for the Pro League either. He recently returned to Pep Guardiola’s team following a long layoff.
His contract at City, like Salah’s at Anfield, runs until 2025 but Guardiola wants to extend his deal. As a result, City would demand an enormous fee.
Son was also quizzed on a prospective move to Saudi Arabia last year but the South Korea and Spurs sensation downplayed the idea.
