Deal Close: Klopp’s dream target set to pass medical after agreeing £39m deal

June 19, 2017

According to the reports from Egypt, AS Roma star Mohamed Salah will undergo a medical with Liverpool this week after a £39m transfer fee was agreed with the Serie A giants.

Last Saturday, KingFut suggested that the Merseyside giants had launched a new €45m (£39.4m) offer for the 25-year-old after accepting that the AS Roma would not lower their valuation.

The same sources have since claimed that the offer has been accepted by the Italian club following negotiations with the winger’s agent, Ramy Abbas, in London.

Liverpool have been in talks with the Stadio Olimpico side since the start of June after their initial £28m offer was rejected.

Despite the need to sell a valuable player in order to meet Financial Fair Play rules, AS Roma were adamant that the explosive attacker would not be allowed to leave for a cut-price fee.

But Jurgen Klopp’s side are now on the verge of setting a new club record transfer as Salah’s fee will overtake the £35m spent to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle United in January 2011.

Mohamed Salah will arrive at Anfield off the back of an impressive season for Roma in which he managed to score 15 goals and provided 11 assists in 31 league appearances.
