Liverpool really are going to finally break our transfer record which has stood at £35m since Andy Carroll signed from Newcastle in 2011…
The fact it’s remained for over six years, with the monumental inflation of player prices in the Premier League says a lot, but at least FSG are righting those wrongs this summer.
Paul Joyce has confirmed that Liverpool will wrap up a deal to sign Mo Salah from Roma for £35m plus add-ons before the end of the week.
The Times journalist is about the most reliable there is when it comes to LFC news and he wouldn’t put his neck on the line unless the deal was pretty much done and dusted.
The 24-year-old Egyptian will earn £90k/week, doubling his Serie A wages, and will arrive following a Serie A season in which he plundered 15 goals from the right wing.
Salah is not the player who struggled at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, but a much-improved flyer with genuine end product.
If the rest of our summer can continue in such exciting fashion, Liverpool will be primed for an assault on all four fronts next term.
