Back in 2014, Liverpool wasted time and did not meet Basel’s asking price for Salah. In the end, the Egyptian international ended up moving to Chelsea.
This time around, the Reds are once again wasting time and have not yet met Roma’s asking price for the speedy playmaker who was in top form last season. Jurgen Klopp must act swiftly or it will not be shocking if the Merseysiders miss out on signing him again.
If the latest reports in the media are anything to go by then Liverpool are closing in on finally signing the attacker, who turned 25 today. Mirror claim that the African star’s agent has been in London and Klopp’s team could finalize the signing in the next few days.
The British source state that the former Blues attacker has agreed personal terms with the Anfield club and he is expected to complete the move once Roma and Liverpool have agreed a fee for his transfer.
Back in 2011, the five time European Champions paid 35 million pounds to break their transfer record and sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle United.
Now, as per the provided Mirror link, Liverpool will have to break the transfer record again to sign Mohamed because Roma are demanding a fee of 35.5million pounds ($45million).
Yesterday, Telegraph claimed that the Reds are ready to break the transfer record to hire the services of Salah. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the comings days.
