Elemdany wrote on his Twitter page: “Mohamed Salah will leave Cairo on Tuesdsay at 4:50 PM (CAI) on Egypt Air flight NO. (MS 779) to Arrive London at 9:05 PM (LHR)”
Salah scored 15 goals and made 11 assists in Serie A last term as AS Roma finished in second place behind Juventus in the title race.
Liverpool signed England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke in a deal from Premier League champions Chelsea earlier this month.
