The news of Mohamed Salah and Liverpool has been doing the rounds in the transfer market for quite a long time now but finally to the rejoice of Liverpool fans, the club has announced the Egyptian winger’s signing for a club record fee of £36.9m which eclipses the previous transfer record of £35 million paid to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle United in 2011.

The 25-year-old is reportedly set to earn £90,000 a week, and will wear the No. 11 shirt previously worn by Roberto Firmino, who takes the No. 9. The Egyptian scored 15 goals and laid on a further 13 in 31 games in last season’s Serie A, as Roma finished second behind Juventus. “He is very excited about performing for our wonderful supporters. He is an ambitious player who wants to win and win at the highest level; he knows he can fulfil those ambitions with Liverpool.” Said Klopp of his new signing.

The Reds have also signed striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea this offseason and now with Salah who will join the likes of Firmino, Mane and Coutinho in Klopp’s attack, the Reds should prove to be a formidable force next season.
