BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Liverpool have signed (£34m) transfer deal with the Roma’s former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah.
The 25-year-old Egyptian who signed a five-year deal has been a prime target of Manager Jurgen Klopp.
He almost joined Liverpool from Basle in 2014 before moving to Chelsea.
Speaking on the deal, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “He has the perfect mix of experience and potential – this is a really exciting signing for us.
“I have followed him since he emerged at Basle and he has matured into a really good player.
“His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat and we are already strong in this area. I like that we will make it even more competitive.”
Salah will wear the number 11 shirt, with Roberto Firmino moving to number nine.
The player was a key figure as Roma finished second in Serie A last season, having scored 15 goals in 31 league appearances.
