Mohamed Salah to undergo medical on Tuesday after Liverpool paid a club record fee to Roma
Mohamed Salah will undergo a medical with Liverpool on Tuesday after a £39 million transfer fee was agreed with Roma, according to reports in Egypt.
On Saturday, KingFut claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s side had launched a new €45m (£39.4m) bid for the 25-year-old after accepting that the Serie A club would not lower their valuation.
KingFut have since claimed that the offer has been accepted by Roma following negotiations with the midfielder’s agent, Ramy Abbas, in London.
Salah’s ticket to England has now been booked and the Egypt international will arrive for his medical at Liverpool on June 20.
Liverpool have been in talks with Roma since the start of June after their initial £28m offer was rejected.
Despite the need to sell a key player in order to meet Financial Fair Play rules, Roma were adamant that the midfielder would not be allowed to leave for a cut-price fee.
But Liverpool 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.
Salah will arrive at Liverpool off the back of an impressive season for Roma in which he scored 15 goals and registered 11 assists in 31 league appearances.
