According to Goal’s Melissa Reddy, Liverpool and Roma will soon come to a compromise over the fee for pacy winger Mohamed Salah.
For a while now, a deal for AS Roma’s rapid forward Mohamed Salah has looked increasingly likely and now it looks as though the Italian club has all but agreed on a fee with Liverpool.
Melissa Reddy from Goal reports that the two clubs will soon reach a compromise over the payment structure for Mohamed Salah’s impending move to Liverpool.
Roma will receive £35 million plus add-ons for Salah with the player having already agreed on personal terms with the Reds.
The Serie A club had initially been pushing for £40 million+ but with Liverpool’s first bid coming in at just £28 million it was clear they were never going to receive that much and therefore a compromise needs to be reached and will be following what has been a lengthy negotiation process.
Salah is ready to proceed with his medical once all the formal negotiations are concluded. With a contract already sorted, a deal is very much close to being finalised and Mohamed Salah is not far away from becoming a Liverpool player.
The Egyptian wideman will be a superb addition to Liverpool’s squad and there is little doubt over the fact that he will improve Jürgen Klopp’s side. He scored 19 goals in all competitions last season and assisted a further 12 for his teammates.
Having Salah in the side will allow Klopp a greater freedom when it comes to team selection as he will have two ridiculously quick wingers in the side with Sadio Mané already on board. Salah is also a player with Champions League experience and that will be invaluable as the Reds make their way in the competition next season.
