The 25-year-old will later head to Liverpool's Melwood training ground in order to complete the formalities of his move.Formerly with Basel and Chelsea, Salah has been a long-time Liverpool target and the Reds had a £28m bid turned down earlier this month.But discussions continued between the clubs and they went on to reach an agreement in principle, with Liverpool set to pay a fee close to £35m for the Egypt international.

Salah might already be a Liverpool player if it wasn't for Jose Mourinho's powers of persuasion. The young Egyptian was a rising star on the brink of swapping Basel for Anfield back in January 2014, only for the former Chelsea manager to pick Why Salah suits Liverpool . 3.

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma, according to Sky sources. He may have struggled to make an impact at Chelsea, but after two-and-a-half stellar seasons in Serie A, a move to Anfield would make perfect sense, writes Nick Wright.

BREAKING NEWS: Liverpool complete €42m Salah signing

  BREAKING NEWS: Liverpool complete €42m Salah signing Roma winger Mohamed Salah has completed a return to the Premier League after agreeing a long-term contract with Liverpool.Liverpool have completed the signing of Roma winger Mohamed Salah for an initial fee of €42million, the Egypt international signing a long-term contract.

Liverpool may be closing in on landing Mo Salah from Roma, yet it seems they have a while to go before they land the player yet. Klopp and Liverpool would suit his high intensity style and work rate, and as we’ve seen before, a player with something to prove can be an interesting commodity indeed.

Liverpool look set to make their first major transfer acquisition of the summer with the £35m purchase of Mohamed Salah from Roma. But how good is the Egyptian winger and how will he fit in to Jurgen Klopp's team?

"Liverpool had wanted me for a number of months," Salah later explained. "They had opened talks in October 2013, but negotiations took a long time, because Basel rejected more than one offer. I was waiting for Liverpool because I really like them. I was eager to join them. But then I received a phone call from Mourinho and that changed everything."

Chelsea's hastily agreed £12m deal was seen as a coup, but Salah would depart west London just a year on from his arrival. And it is only now, after a restorative spell in Italy, that he finally appears to be Anfield-bound. The £35m Liverpool are willing to pay for him reflects his graduation from exciting prospect to established star. This time it is difficult to see the move ending unhappily.

Mohamed Salah's career in numbers

  Mohamed Salah's career in numbers It’s official. Mohamed Salah is a Liverpool player after the club signed him from AS Roma. The seemingly never-ending saga (it was only three weeks but still…) came to an end when Liverpool announced the signing but what type of player are the Reds getting? I’ve taken a closer look at his stats and, spoiler alert, they’re pretty good! Here is Salah’s career in numbers 251 Salah has played 251 cub games as a professional. He’s played for El Mokawloon SC, FC Basel, Chelsea, Fiorentina and Roma. 77 In his 251 club games, Salah has scored a total of 77 goals. 55 Salah has been credited with 55 assists in his club career so far. 53 Mohamed Salah has been capped 53 times by Egypt. He’s scored an impressive 29 international goals so far in his career. 115 Sadio Mane played on the right for Liverpool last season but that might change if Salah is to play in his favourite position, He’s played 115 games on the right in his career in Europe. He’s played on the left just 17 times. 1 Salah has been sent off just once in his career and that was in a game for Roma against Fiorentina, the side he’d previously had a loan spell with. He was booked in the 87th minute of the game after a tussle with Facundo Roncaglia, and then was shown a second yellow after showing dissent with a hand gesture towards the referee. 19 and 15 In his latest season, Salah scored 19 goals and had 15 assists in just 41 games for Roma.

Mohamed Salah ’s style suits Liverpool and the player will thrive under the management of Jurgen Klopp, according to fellow Egyptian Mido. Why Klopp is useless. Race for Top Four. Mad Ivan spouting again.

" Liverpool ’s style of play suits Salah perfectly and Jurgen Klopp’s style suits the Egyptian winger." Salah scored an impressive 15 Serie A goals for Roma last season, and is keen to succeed in England after a brief, failed spell at Chelsea.

Over the last two-and-a-half seasons, Liverpool have watched Salah blossom. The winger may have failed to convince Mourinho that he was worthy of regular playing time at Chelsea, making just six Premier League starts in a year, but he made an immediate impression after joining Fiorentina on loan midway through the 2014/15 campaign.

A run of six goals in his first seven appearances for La Viola included an electrifying brace in a Coppa Italia semi-final clash with Juventus in Turin. Fiorentina, who had lost Juan Cuadrado to Chelsea as part of the agreement, could hardly believe their luck.

"Perhaps we got the better end of that deal," said manager Vicenzo Montella a few weeks later. "We knew Salah's characteristics but didn't expect him to have such an immediate impact in Italian football. Maybe only Leo Messi is quicker than him with the ball at his feet."

It was high praise but Montella was not Salah's only admirer. After he helped Fiorentina to the last four of the Europa League and finished the season with nine goals in all competitions, Serie A runners-up Roma decided to put their own loan offer to Chelsea. Much to Fiorentina's dismay, Salah agreed to join them.

Salah meanwhile is keen to return to the Premier League, and sees it as unfinished business given he played for Chelsea yet hardly got the chance to show what he feels he can actually do. Klopp and Liverpool would suit his high intensity style and work rate, and as we’ve seen before

“ Salah will definitely move to Liverpool ,” he said. “It’s just a matter of time. “ Liverpool ’s style of play suits Salah perfectly and Klopp’s style suits him. William Gallas: This is why Tottenham will struggle in the Cha

He went from strength to strength in the Italian capital, compounding Fiorentina's misery by scoring in each of Roma's games against them in 2015/16. He went on to finish the campaign as Roma's top scorer with 14 Serie A goals, prompting the Giallorossi to exercise their option to buy him in August of last year.

Last season was Salah's best yet. The 25-year-old hit double figures for both goals and assists in Serie A, with his devastating performances on Roma's right flank helping them secure their highest points total in decades. In February, when Salah scored twice in a 5-0 thrashing of Palermo, manager Luciano Spalletti described him as a "world-class" talent.

Few observers in Italy would argue with that assessment. Salah struck up a fearsome partnership with Edin Dzeko at Roma, assisting seven of his 29 Serie A goals last season. "When Momo is there, it's easier to play because I know that he is the guy who is going to always run in the spaces, and I always have option to play to him in the space," said the former Manchester City striker.

Liverpool desperately lacked that kind of speed and movement for much of last season. Sadio Mane enjoyed an outstanding debut campaign at Anfield following his arrival from Southampton, but he was the only player in Jurgen Klopp's squad who possessed the pace and unpredictability to spring a stubborn defence.

As a result, Liverpool frequently struggled in his absence, winning just 42 per cent of the games he missed compared with 68 per cent of the games he started. In Salah, Klopp has identified a player to ease their dependence on the Senegal international and provide the kind of pacey outlet his high-intensity playing style demands.

Klopp will also be confident Salah can cope with the demands he places on his attacking players without the ball. In fact, in a press conference after that 5-0 win over Palermo in February, Spalletti was so eager to praise Salah's defensive work-rate that he produced a video of the winger sprinting 70 yards to make a vital challenge deep in his own half.

"Mohamed Salah has picked up fantastic, brilliant habits," said Spalletti. "He was running to recover a lost ball in the 75th minute [against Palermo]. This is the right path to follow. If every player in our squad applied the same level, we'll get so much satisfaction from games. These are the right habits."

They are certainly the right habits for Liverpool. The Reds have had to bide their time for Salah, but he returns to the Premier League far better equipped to show what he can do. If his progress continues at the same rate, Chelsea could regret the day they let him go.
