Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have finally completed the big money signing of former AS Roma star and Egypt international – Mohamed Salah. The ex-Chelsea and Fiorentina winger is set to arrive at Anfield for a fee in the region of £35 million, becoming the most expensive African footballer to ply his trade among the European game.
The immediate implications seem rather beneficial for the Reds faithful…
Mo Salah is a Liverpool player. Sad to see him leave Serie A. Has been wildly entertaining and keeps getting better, esp. in front of goal.

Whilst Salah's former Italian employers certainly won’t be lacking in the financial department this week…
Turning out to be good week for Roma's bank manager. Salah sold to Liverpool for £35m & Kostas Manolas on his way to Zenit for another £33m

Although Salah has the potential to really take the Premier League by storm this time around…

…many football fans still remember his inability to showcase his talent at Chelsea…
I don't know why LFC are moving for Salah. He was a flop at CFC. Where would Salah fit in at LFC? They should spend that £35m on a GK.

But even though Liverpool’s recent transfer activity has arguably left a lot to be desired…

…sometimes all it takes is a decent second chance to really get going again…
Can not believe how people think Salah is a "PL Flop" and will flop again.
Wasn't Pogba a "PL Flop"? Or it doesn't count because he dabs?

Mohamed Salah may not be destined to succeed among the English top-flight next term…
Mo Salah was an absolute fail at Chelsea… Massive signing ???. #LFC

…but on the back of his recent form among the Italian Serie A…
Salah scored more goals and got more assists than Dybala in Serie A last season. £35m for a winger of that quality is great value.

…surely this latest big money signing is bound to work out in the end?
It's not at Melwood, but I'll take an Anfield Lean. Welcome to Liverpool, Mohamed Salah. pic.twitter.com/6Tg8Li3vHs
