Liverpool have officially completed the signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma.
The Egyptian international, who registered 15 goals and 11 assists last season for the Giallorossi, joins Liverpool for a fee believed to be £34m before add ons, after back and forth negotiations between the two clubs and will be wearing the number 11 shirt previously worn by Roberto Firmino.
Salah represents the first proper foray into the transfer market in what will be a pivotal summer for Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp. Given the inundation of money into the Premier League, and the excellent position the Reds now possess with Champions League football on the horizon, the German will hope that Salah is the first of multiple high level signings who can come in and immediately improve Liverpool’s first team.
The pacey trickster will likely feature in Jürgen Klopp’s first team next season, flanking Roberto Firmino, with Sadio Mané acting as his opposite number on the left-hand side. Salah first broke onto the scene for Basel, scoring nine times in 46 appearances, before making what was ultimately an ill-fated move to Chelsea in January of 2013/14. It was in that transfer window in which Liverpool’s first pursuit of the Egyptian ultimately proved fruitless; possibly one of the key factors in Liverpool not reaching the pinnacle of Premier League football under former manager Brendan Rodgers.
