Gabriele Marcotti has expressed his bemusement at transfer speculation linking Liverpool with a move to sign Mohamed Salah.

The Merseyside outfit are thought to be in negotiations with the Egypt international over a potential summer move to Anfield.

Liverpool are reported to have agreed terms with Salah but the Premier League outfit haven’t reached an agreement on the transfer fee with Roma.

Jurgen Klopp is bound to be linked with a host of different players ahead of the 2017 summer transfer window after securing their return to the Champions League.

Salah moved to Chelsea from Swiss side Basel in an £11m deal in 2014 before going on loan to Italian clubs Fiorentina and Roma.

Speaking to ESPN FC about Liverpool being linked Salah in the 2017 summer transfer window, Serie A expert Marcotti said:

“This is an odd one. Liverpool were in for Salah when he moved to Chelsea in 2014. This seems to be coming from his agent.

“There are reports a formal offer has been turned down which I haven’t be able to confirm.”
