Back in 2014, Liverpool came close to signing Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah. However, he moved to Chelsea instead after the Blues hijacked the deal.

The stylish and pacy winger has been linked with Liverpool for the second time. According to an exclusive report from TMW, Salah’s agent, Remy Abbas, has flown to Liverpool to hold talks with the Merseyside giants for a probable move.

The report adds that the deal appears to be at an “advanced stage”. Earlier this week, Abbas published a photograph of his flight ticket heading for the UK, and he followed the official Twitter account of Liverpool.

While Salah failed to make a strong impression with Chelsea, his performance with Roma over the last two seasons will excite the Liverpool fans.

In his first season on loan, he ended up being the joint highest scorer with 15 goals in all competitions (plus six assists) for the Giallorossi.

Roma quickly secured a permanent deal for their player of the season. In 2016/17, he took his game to a different level, scoring 15 goals and providing 11 assists.

Known for his burst of pace and excellent dribbling skills, Salah will be a terrific addition to the Liverpool squad. Also, being left footed Salah would add a different dimension to the squad - as he is capable of playing from the right and from the centre.
