Egypt international Mohamed Salah’s move to English giants Liverpool is nearing completion after Liverpool give in to AS Roma demands.
Mohamed Salah is set to finalise his move to Liverpool after the club’s acceptance of AS Roma’s fee for the Egyptian winger.
Salah’s ongoing transfer saga to Liverpool has hit highs and lows but the club will submit a bid in the region of Roma’s valuation tomorrow, KingFut understands.
Ramy Abbas, Salah’s agent, arrived to England to hold crunch talks with the club and KingFut sources confirm that Liverpool have finally accepted that they’d have to break the bank to sign the winger.
Salah, who turned 25 this week, has had his best-ever season since going professional, scoring 19 goals in all competitions for Roma, despite missing almost a month and a half due to his presence with the Egyptian national team for the Africa Cup of Nations. At the AFCON in Gabon, Salah was involved in four of Egypt’s five goals with 2 goals and 2 assists as he led the Pharaohs to the finals, where they lost 2-1 to Cameroon.
It is worth noting that the Italians initially put a €50 million price tag for their star player, with Roma sporting director Monchi confirming this week than an offer had already been received from an ‘English club’ for Salah, but the club would not sell until their valuation was met.
Their first bid for the player came at £28.5 million, which was immediately rejected by Roma as they demanded a figure between £35 million to £40 million to part ways with Salah.
Sources confirm to KingFut that the next bid for Salah would be a record-fee €45 million, subject to approval, medical check ups and personal terms.
It is worth noting that the former Chelsea winger was one of only eight players in Europe’s top five league to record double figures for goals and assists last season.
