Liverpool are days away from confirming Mo Salah as our first major signing of the summer, following the deal to bring Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.
Paul Joyce has confirmed as much in the Times, with the Reds expected to pay £35m plus add-ons for the Egyptian.
But what are we getting for a record fee? Well, the 24-year-old scored 19 goals in all competitions last season, and his ridiculous pace is very well publicised – but this clip below will perhaps explain exactly why Jurgen Klopp has gone all out for the flyer.
With Roma 4-0 up last season, Salah sprints the entire length of the pitch to win back possession when his team-mate had lost it.
Roberto Firmino, eat your heart out!
If he can provide defensively as well as bagging goals regularly -£35m will look an absolute snip!
This is Mo Salah backtracking with Roma 4-0 up in the 72nd minute…
Without being crude, this would give Jurgen Klopp genuine wood. pic.twitter.com/Ewjtt95AUw
