Egyptian forward, Mohamed Salah has begged AS Roma to allow him join premier league side Liverpool this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The 24-year-old is hugely admired by Reds manager Jurgen Klopp who views him as a solution to their lack of depth in the final third of the pitch.

Liverpool had a bid in the region of £28million rejected by the Serie A side but are determined to sign the former Chelsea star who scored 19 goals in 41 appearances in the just concluded season.

The Reds are locked in negotiations with Roma and will submit a second bid of around £35m for the Egypt international.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Salah has informed Roma that he wants leave the club for the premier league and hopes for a smooth round of negotiations.

Roma wants £40m for Salah and the club’s director of football Monchi confirmed that an unnamed English club (which is believed to be Liverpool) have made a bid for the player but he insists suitors must meet the club’s valuation.

‘There’s an offer from an English club for Momo (Salah) but Roma sets his price,’ said Monchi.
