Liverpool are reportedly close to finalising a deal for Roma winger Mohamed Salah and the player could even undergo a medical later on this week.
The Reds have been publicly chasing the Egyptian international for several weeks now and are understood to have had a £28m offer rejected by his club, who are thought to want as much as £40m for his signature.

With negotiations taking place for several weeks, Salah's agent Remy Abbas denounced rumours that a deal was all but complete on Sunday. However, the agent's tweet hasn't stopped Goal among others from reporting that a deal is now close, after both clubs appear to have found a compromise that they can agree on.
It is likely that Liverpool will increase their initial bid by as much as £7m and submit and improved offer of £35m, however, that will likely rise in time as Roma will insist on including add-ons into his contract that will mean that they could receive their £40m.
Salah is understood to be keen on moving to Anfield having admired the Reds for a long time and has even been rumoured to have agreed personal terms with the club.
