Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Liverpool close in on the signing of Mohamed Salah….
Liverpool are closing-in on the signing of Mohamed Salah with the attacker agreeing personal terms worth £90,000-a-week ahead of a potential £35m move from AS Roma, according to the Telegraph.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to be busy in the transfer market this summer as he looks to build a squad capable of competing in the Premier League and Champions League next season and it seems the Reds boss is focussing on strengthening his attack.
Having already signed Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke, Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Salah in recent days with ESPN reporting over the weekend that talks were on-going after an opening £28m bid was rejected by Roma.
It seems the negotiations are now close to completion as the Telegraph are one of several media outlets claiming today that Salah is on the verge of moving to Anfield in a deal that will be worth at least £35m.
That means the Egyptian international is set to become Liverpool’s most expensive ever signing as when add ons are included the deal would eclipse the £35m the Merseysiders paid Newcastle for Andy Carroll in January 2011.
The Telegraph say Salah is keen to join Liverpool and suggest personal terms are no longer an issue as Salah is expected to sign a long-term deal worth £90,000-a-week. The Times are also reporting [via the Metro] that Salah has agreed a £90,000-a-week contract.
Negotiations are continuing but it looks as though the 24-year-old will finally join Liverpool just three years after rejecting a move to Anfield in favour of joining Chelsea in a £12m deal from Basel in 2014.
Salah endured a frustrating time at Stamford Bridge and was forced out on loan to secure first team football before sealing a permanent switch to Roma last summer.
The attacker has rediscovered his best form in Italy, scoring 19 goals and providing a further 15 assists in all competitions last season to help the club finish second in the Serie A table behind Juventus.

Salah is predominantly a right-winger but he’s capable of playing anywhere across the attacking positions so he’ll give Klopp plenty of options in the final third if this proposed deal does go through.
