Liverpool bid for Salah rejected

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the deal is "at an advanced stage".

Remarkably, Salah only became a priority once it became clear that Spartak Moscow wanted £40 million for Quincy Promes, the Dutch worldwide shining for the Russian Premier League side.

The Reds have always been linked with the Egyptian forward and came close to signing him a number of seasons ago before Chelsea, then managed by Jose Mourinho, nipped in to take him to Stamford Bridge.

He impressed in the Italian capital, earning a permanent move, before scoring 19 goals in all competitions this term.

It's worth taking the latest developments with the good old "pinch of salt" given the source, yet there is a feeling that a deal is looking increasingly likely for a player capable of providing Liverpool with some much needed width and strength in depth. Here are the Reds' weekly wages, as understood by Starsport.

The Reds were also interested in Salah before he opted to join Chelsea in 2014.

But his career has really taken off since his move to the Giallorossi, where the player has scored 43 goals in 109 Serie A appearances.

"But actually, not a lot of players told me last year, "I don't want to be part of this, but let me see what happens next year and then we can talk again".

The 52-time capped Egypt worldwide is also entering the final two years of his Roma contract and Liverpool may feel they have a chance of obtaining him this summer.
