Mohamed Salah is wanted by the Giallorossi, who are reportedly interested in a loan deal with an option to buy in the summer.

Since moving to Chelsea last January, things have not quite worked out for Mohamed Salah, with Roma ready to end his Stamford Bridge tenure according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Egypt international has only started six Premier League games over the last 12 months, with a paltry 30 minutes of action all he has seen this season.

Roma are the latest team to be linked with a move for the former Basel attacker, with the Italian newspaper claiming that the Stadio Olimpico outfit have already met with Salah’s agent.

The report claims that Rudi Garcia’s men want to take the 22-year-old on loan for the rest of the season, with the option-to-buy him this summer.

It also states that the Blues are open to the possibility of Salah heading to the Italian capital but want an obligation-to-buy clause included in the deal, with a transfer fee in the region of €15-17 million speculated.

Salah’s finest moment in a Chelsea shirt came at the end of last term when he came off the bench to score against Arsenal in the 6-0 rout at Stamford Bridge.

However, it is understandable that the Egyptian will be open to a new challenge given the lack of opportunities handed to him this season by Jose Mourinho.
