Liverpool: Watch Mohamed Salah, Jurgen Klopp's New £35 Million Transfer in Action

Mohamed Salah, the Egypt and A.S. Roma winger, is on the verge of signing for Liverpool in what may be one of the most intriguing Premier League transfer deals of the summer so far.

Salah previously spent an unsatisfactory season and a half at Chelsea between 2014 and February 2015.

At Stamford Bridge, he showed glimpses of his talent as a speedy, skilful winger in the classic mold, able to take on and go past opposition defenders almost at will.

Chelsea had signed Salah off the back of some impressive performances for Basel, the Swiss club, in the Champions League.

But he never settled or got a consistent run in the side at Stamford Bridge and was shipped out on loan to Fiorentina in Italy's Serie A.

It is in Italy that Salah has thrived. Initially on loan at Roma from Chelsea, he signed permanently in the summer of 2016.

Last season was Salah's breakout year with 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A as Roma finished four points behind Juventus in the race for the league title.

That form has caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager. According to the Liverpool Echo Salah, from Basyoun in northern Egypt, flew into Liverpool for a medical on Thursday morning.

At a proposed £35 million ($44.3 million) plus four million add-ons, he will become Liverpool's most expensive ever signing, beating the £35 million Liverpool paid for England striker Andy Carroll in January 2011.

The difference is that Carroll seemed an act of financial madness, signed in panic because Liverpool suddenly had £60 million ($76 million) from the sale of Fernando Torres lying around.

Salah, hardworking and intelligent with his use of the ball, should fit into Klopp's plans even if he doesn't start games every week.
