BAYERN MUNICH are in contention to sign Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah.
That's according to bookmakers Coral, who've installed the Bavarian heavyweights as one of the market leaders to secure his coveted signature.

The Bundesliga champions were available at 12/1 to be Salah's next destination in December.
But that price has shortened markedly to 4/1 after Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge lavished praise on the Egyptian talent.
He told ON Time Sports: "In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa, and of course he got the skills to play in the best teams in the world.
"What Salah has achieved can be compared to what Messi and Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
"At the moment we don’t plan on signing Salah, but certainly it would be an honour to have him."
Salah's contract will expire in June 2023.

Liverpool are said to be 'relaxed' about the situation and are in no rush to hand him a new contract amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
But Rummenigge's words could ruffle a few feathers at Anfield.
Especially after the 28-year-old discussed the possibility of leaving Anfield for one of the two Spanish heavyweights back in December.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are priced at 7/2 and 4/1 respectively, with French champions Paris Saint-Germain also available at 4s.
Further back in the field are Juventus, Manchester City and Inter Milan, all locked together at 8/1.
Coral’s John Hill said: "Mohamed Salah has proved to be one of the best forwards in Europe over the last few years.
"If the Egyptian does decide to leave Liverpool, all the major clubs in Europe are sure to be interested in his services.
"Barcelona top the betting to be his next club as they may see him as Lionel Messi's replacement if the magician does decide to leave the Nou Camp."
