Despite the need for further negotiation to come to an agreement for Mohamed Salah, Liverpool remain confident that the productive AS Roma winger will move to Anfield.

Although a £28 million bid was rejected, there appears to be an expectation that a figure around £35 million will eventually be enough for Liverpool to add pace, goals, a threat on the counter, and another winger to the existing attacking options. His numbers from a wide position are simply too excellent to ignore.

Roma need to balance the books, sporting director Monchi needs funds to work his magic in the transfer window, and a player who has shined over the past two seasons in Italy needs Jürgen Klopp’s guidance now that Luciano Spalletti has recently ended his second spell in Rome.

Serie A already has three top teams in Juventus, Roma, and Napoli that all broke the 80 point barrier this season. The Milan clubs—emboldened by Chinese investment—will look to use the absence of European football and arrival of expensive new signings to secure Champions League qualification next season. It's not as weak a league as some may think it is, underling the impressive output of a winger that will turn 25 later this month.
