Lengthy negotiations between Liverpool and Roma over a deal for Mohamed Salah appear to have moved a step closer towards completion.
The Reds have made an improved £39million bid for the winger that has been accepted by the Italian side having previously rejected Liverpool’s initial offer of £28million, according to a report labelled as an exclusive by KingFut.
It has also been suggested that a medical could be booked in for as soon as Tuesday with the club now seemingly just a few minor details away from securing the services of the Egyptian.
Confirmation from English news outlets is always worth waiting for but fans can have good reason to believe the idea an agreement is in place.
Salah will arrive with the traits designed to make him a perfect fit to Jurgen Klopp’s attacking setup with his pace and directness giving him the potential to have a similar impact to that of Sadio Mane.
The 25-year-old will represent another valuable and crucially alternative attacking option capable of giving the manager plenty of welcomed selection dilemmas and yet another goal threat having scored 19 times for Roma last season.
His apparent £39million fee will make him the most expensive player in the club’s history, surpassing the £35million paid to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle in 2011.
