The reports emerged just hours before Liverpool met Porto in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
It’s claimed that after meeting Klopp, Salah was so unhappy that he threatened club chiefs he would submit a transfer request to force through a move.

The two clubs met in Kiev, with Gareth Bale breaking Liverpool hearts with a brace that secured a third consecutive European crown for Los Blancos.
Salah was forced off with a nasty shoulder injury following a clash with the combative Ramos.
