Liverpool complete £35m deal for winger Mohamed Salah


By Robert Jones

Liverpool have signed former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah for a fee understood to be close to £35million.

The Egypt international, who has spent the last two seasons playing for Roma, left Stamford Bridge on a permanent deal last summer for less than half that figure.

"I'm very excited to be here. I'm very happy," he said.

"I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club.

"We have a great team and very good players. Everyone can see the coach gives everything."

"Mohamed has the perfect mix of experience and potential, this is a really exciting signing for us," manager Jurgen Klopp said.

"He knows the Premier League, he has pedigree in the Champions League and he is one of the most important players for his country.

"His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad."
