Liverpool Agree Personal Terms with Former-Chelsea Midfielder
Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign AS Roma midfielder Mohamed Salah, according to reports in Italy.
Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via the Metro) are reporting that the Egyptian’s agent is in England and has already agreed terms with the Reds.
However, the report also states that the Premier League side are waiting on Roma to decide whether they want to sell their star player or not.
Liverpool are yet to agree a fee with the Serie A giants with the article claiming that Roma are demanding €35 million (£30.4m).
What could be good news for Jürgen Klopp’s side is that the Italian club could be open to selling the winger as he is entering the final two years of his current contract. The 24-year-old could ask for a much higher wage should they wish to renew this summer.
Mohamed Salah scored a very impressive 15 goals from out wide and added a further 11 assists in his 31 Serie A appearances this past season to help the Rome club finish second.
Chelsea previously signed the winger in January 2014 for a reported £11 million. With limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge he was loaned out to both Fiorentina and Roma before the latter signed him on a permanent basis last summer.
Salah is quick, a good finisher and creates a number of chances, from both out wide and some through balls down the middle. Should Liverpool be successful in their bid to sign the Egpyitan it would give Klopp another excellent attacking threat in his squad.
