Mohamed Salah boasts many of the attributes Jürgen Klopp was keen to enhance his Liverpool squad with this summer.
The Egypt international completed a transfer to the Reds from AS Roma last month and is set to join up with his new teammates and the manager for pre-season training in the coming days.
Having assessed the qualities of a squad that secured fourth place in the Premier League in May, Klopp wanted to add greater speed to the options at his disposal – and believes Salah brings that and much more.
“Even if people didn’t know too much about him, they [must have] watched a few videos and they are impressive,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We have had a few talks of course, spoke to each other – he is a really nice lad. He is really looking forward to coming to Liverpool and joining us.
