Chelsea’s out of favour winger Mohamed Salah is linked with plenty of Serie A clubs and recent reports are suggesting that AS Roma are in a strong position to land the Egyptian winger.
The Egyptian winger dubbed as the “Egyptian Messi” joined Fiorentina on loan in January and made a strong impression in the Serie A. Although, Salah has no future at Chelsea, but he has no shortage of offers from other Serie A clubs, including Fiorentina, Juventus, Roma and Inter Milan.
Fiorentina looked in a strong position to sign the fleet footed winger but now it seems that the Florence side have given up hopes to sign Salah.
All the major Italian newspapers – Gazzetta dello Sport, Tuttosport & Corriere dello Sport – have covered a story on Salah today, more or less reporting on the same lines.
Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that Roma have offered €23m and are in the pole position to sign him. The Gialorrossi have earmarked Salah as the club’s top priority target in the summer ahead of Dzeko and are ready to meet Chelsea’s €25m asking price.
Roma’s Director of Football, Walter Sabatini was in London recently and met with Salah to discuss over the transfer. However, according to reports from Corriere dello Sport, Roma would prefer a loan move with a forced option to buy, and that the deal should be completed within this weekend.
Mohamed Salah was a target for Liverpool before he signed for the Stamford Bridge club and Liverpool are rumoured to be making an offer to sign the Egyptian after selling Raheem Sterling to Manchester City.
The future of 23 year old former Basel player has been one of the most trending topics throughout the transfer window and it would be interesting to see where Salah moves with a number of clubs interested in his signature.
Mohamed Salah has 37 international caps for Egypt and scored 21 goals for the Pharaohs and is currently one of the best African players in the world.
