According to Spanish outlet Don Balon , the Catalan giants see Salah as a €250million (£226m) successor to Argentine star Messi.
Salah was the Premier League Golden Boot winner last season and was linked with a summer move to Real Madrid .
However, Barca are ready to take on their Clasico rivals in the race for Salah, who they view as the perfect replacement once Messi leaves.
Kylian Mbappe is also apparently on Barca’s wish list, but the Nou Camp side are planning to make a move for Salah next summer.
The 25-year-old did appear to have silenced the rumours in a interview with the Bleacher Report .
“I’m very happy now in Liverpool . They have made me feel like I’m home. It is amazing with the fans here,” Salah said.
