Liverpool complete signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma for club record fee of £37m

Mohamed Salah has taken the No11 shirt, which puts him alongside No10 Philippe Coutinho in the home locker room – as he saw this morning.

After putting pen to paper last night, new Liverpool signing the Egypt international has been touring Anfield today.

Salah represents the first major signing of what is expected to be a busy summer of transfer activity at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp keen to strengthen his squad ahead of Liverpool’s return to the Champions League.

He almost joined Liverpool in January 2014 only to sign for Chelsea from Basel. 

The 25-year-old made just 13 Premier League appearances under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink, but has resurrected his career in Serie A with Fiorentina, where he spent six months on loan, before a controversial move to Roma.

Salah has penned a five-year contract worth £90,000 a week, and becomes Liverpool’s most expensive signing in history, overtaking the £35m paid to Newcastle United for Andy Carroll in January 2011.

Liverpool’s most expensive signing:

Mohamed Salah £37m
Andy Carroll £35m

Sadio Mane £34.5m

Christian Benteke £32.5m

Roberto Firmino £29m

Adam Lallana £25m
