Egypt and AS Roma forward Mohamed Salah will undergo a medical with Liverpool on Tuesday after a £39 million transfer fee has been agreed with Roma.
According to reports from Egypt, top media outlet KingFut on Saturday claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s side had launched an improved bid of €45m (£39.4m) for the 25-year-old in the wake of accepting that the Serie A club would not bring down their valuation on the Egyptian.
KingFut claimed that the offer has been acknowledged by Roma taking after negotiations with the midfielder’s representative, Ramy Abbas, in London. Salah’s ticket to England has now been booked and the former Chelsea player will arrive for his medical session at Liverpool on June 20.
Liverpool have been in talks with Roma since the start of June after their underlying £28m offer was rejected. In spite of the need to sell a key player keeping in mind the end goal to meet Financial Fair Play rules, Roma were adamant that the midfielder would not be permitted to leave at a cut-cost charge.
