Liverpool Echo announced that Mohamed Salah said he is willing to wear the Liverpool’s No 9 shirt, as Liverpool and Roma have finally reached an agreement. The Egyptian winger has become the Red’s record signing with a transfer fee of around £35 million.
Salah should be in the UK today as his medical is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21. If he passes the medical, he will sign five-year contract, which according to The Mirror is expected to cost Liverpool £90,000-a-week. The newspaper also claims that Red will pay £32 million on sign up with another £5 million in add-ons.
Mohamed Salah is the second offensive signing Liverpool have made during this transfer window. The Reds have previously secured the signature of the 19-year-old striker Dominic Solanke, who has become a top scorer for England’s Under-20 in their World Cup winning tournament.
Mohamed Salah will be happy to wear the famous No 9 shirt at Liverpool, which is currently vacant. He was No 11 at Roma but it is taken at Anfield by one of the Reds finest players – Roberto Firmino.
