Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Mo Salah, now the Egyptian has told Roma he wants to leave.
His Italian club want £40m, but Liverpool are rumoured to have offered £35m plus £4m in potential add-ons (Guardian) for the 24-year-old flyer.
Now Salah has actively informed Roma he wants the move, having already agreed to £90k/week wages with us, finalising the transfer will hopefully be a formality.
Sky in Italy: Mohamed Salah has told Roma he wants to move to Liverpool

Salah flopped at Chelsea, but in recent years, so have Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Juan Cuadrado. The fact he got such limited opportunities is more a reflection of Chelsea than himself, and you can be sure he’s returned to England a much, much better player – having registered 43 goals in two and a half seasons in Italy.
The thought of the superb Sadio Mane and soon to arrive Salah on our flanks is a mouthwatering prospect – and one that will hopefully help us break down defensive sides: such a problem in 2016/17.
