Insider claims Liverpool will pay £39m for second summer signing
Serie A expert Tancredi Palmeri claims Liverpool will pay £39m for AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah this summer
Liverpool will pay £39m to make Mohamed Salah their second summer signing, Tancredi Palmeri has claimed.
The Egypt international has been heavily linked with a move to the Anfield outfit in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Salah was reported to have agreed terms with Liverpool last week but the Reds were struggling to negotiate an acceptable fee for the 25-year-old.
However, Liverpool have been rumoured to be ready to pay a club-record fee to make the African forward their second summer signing.
And Serie A expert Palmeri has taken to Twitter to reveal some of the details of Liverpool’s deal to sign Salah this summer.
Palmeri wrote on the social media site: “Liverpool and Roma have reached an agreement for Salah for 45m€. Salah is a new Liverpool player”
Liverpool signed England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke in a free transfer from Premier League champions Chelsea.
Salah previously played for the west London side but struggled to have an impact following his £11m switch from Swiss side Basel.
The African forward scored 15 times and made 11 assists in Serie A last term to finish as one of the division’s most-creative players.
