LIVERPOOL have been warned Mohamed Salah could leave the club this year by former Anfield star Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian defender left Merseyside last summer for Zenit St Petersburg in Russia.

The duo developed a friendship during their time as team-mates and still enjoy a strong relationship.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Lovren claimed it is possible his pal could decide to join one of LaLiga’s big boys.

Lovren said: “I cannot talk in his name about what his plans are but I think he's similar to me.

“If he's focused he's focused there and he showed that with the goalscoring.

“You never know what can happen in football.”

The 31-year-old added: “I wish him all the best, I hope he wins lots of trophies at Liverpool but football can be quite changeable so let's see.

“We'll always be in contact, he's more than a friend. He knows he can call me whenever he wants and whatever he wants to talk about we are there for each other.

“Even if the club doesn't do that well it says a lot about his personal qualities.”

Salah remains one of Liverpool’s star players but has been consistently linked with an exit.

And the Egyptian forward refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona earlier in the year when asked about the Spanish giants.

Jurgen Klopp remains convinced that his 31-goal top goalscorer will stay at the Reds despite Paris Saint-Germain also being keen.

And Lovren also says his pal is focused on firing Liverpool back to glory.

Salah is currently tied on 22 goals with Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League golden boot.

He has won the award in two of his three seasons in England and he is vying for a third to draw him level with the record held by Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.

The Reds face Crystal Palace at home on Sunday knowing a win would seal a place in next season’s Champions League.
