Liverpool Closing In On Record-Breaking Summer Transfer
Liverpool will need to break their own transfer record to sign AS Roma forward Mohamed Salah, according to reports.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Roma are demanding a transfer fee in excess of £35 million to sell one of their best players this summer as the negotiations are still continuing. The transfer will see Liverpool break their transfer record which currently stands at £35 million that they spent for Andy Carroll from Newcastle United in 2011.
Earlier reports confirm that the 24-year old have already agreed personal terms with the Premier League giants as he will be earning £90,000-a-week at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp has identified the Egyptian international as an ideal addition to his exiting forward line as the Reds will be taking part in Champions League for the first time under the German next season.
On Thursday, Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport have also reported that Salah has agreed personal terms with Reds and have informed Roma on leaving the club this summer. However, the Reds are yet to make a fresh bid after their initial bid of £28m was rejected.
‘It is true that there is interest in Salah from an English club, there is an offer, but we set the price and we decide if we sell at that price,’ Roma’s sporting director, Monchi, said at a press conference on Wednesday.
Salah has been arguably Roma’s best player in the attack as he scored 19 goals and made 15 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions. But the Egypt international has failed in his previous stint in Premier League with Chelsea.
The exciting winger was then sent on a loan to Serie A side Fiorentina before another loan spell at Roma. The Italian side signed Salah on a permanent deal last summer after his impressive loan spell in the capital city.
But he could be on his way back to Premier League as Jurgen Klopp eyes him as a necessary ingredient that is missing in his attack this season. The Reds had endured another disappointing season after their dramatic collapse in January that saw them out of FA Cup and EFL Cup. Klopp will have to ensure that similar slip up do not happen next season as they will be competing in Champions League as well.
