Latest update on Liverpool’s attempt to sign Mohamed Salah – report
Liverpool are refusing to be held to ransom over the signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma this summer, say reports
Liverpool are refusing to pay over the odds to sign Mohamed Salah from Roma this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Reds have already head a £28m bid for the winger rejected by the Italian club but that the Merseyside outfit will not be “held to ransom” over the proposed signing of the Egypt international.
Roma are said to be holding out for a fee of more than £35m but Liverpool are refusing to pay over the odds for the former Chelsea player.
The Reds are said to be “considering alternatives” should a deal to sign Salah this summer fail to materialise.
The African forward was in fine form for Roma last season as he scored 15 goals and made 11 assists in 31 Serie A games for the Italian outfit.
It is claimed that the winger turned down a move to Liverpool to sign for Chelsea back in 2014 but he failed to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings following their qualification for next season’s Champions League.
