Mohamed Salah has been heavily linked with a move away from AS Roma, and Liverpool are currently leading the race to sign him. In fact, they're miles ahead of any other teams in terms of negotiations.
Just two days ago Liverpool had a £28m bid for the Egyptian rejected, but they have reportedly now stepped up the bidding and made an offer of €40m - this is according to journalist Mohamed Alkawaleny, who works for beINSPORTS. He tweeted: "Mohamed Salah officially joins Liverpool 40 million euros.” Please note there have not yet been any official announcements from either club, the player or any of the major news organisations - so take this with a pinch of salt.
Salah has played Premier League football before - after impressing Chelsea while playing for Basel in the Champions League, the London club signed him later that season. He didn't play particularly well for Chelsea, although in fairness he wasn't given much of a chance by Jose Mourinho. He was subsequently loaned out to Fiorentina, and later was loaned to fellow Italian side AS Roma - this move was then made permanent at the start of the 2016/17 season for €15m (roughly the same fee Chelsea paid for the winger).
Just one season later Salah finds himself the subject of a potential €40m move. Like I said, nothing has been officially confirmed yet but even the likes of Sky Sports have been reporting that the deal is close to completion, so it looks very likely. I'm rating this transfer with a 8/10 chance of happening - the only reason it might not happen is because the window technically hasn't opened yet, so the player still has one month to try to back-out of any agreements that may or may not have been made.
