Liverpool remain confident that they will sign Mohamed Salah despite having a £28 million bid rejected by Roma earlier this week.

Talks are continuing between the clubs with Roma understood to be holding out for £35m for the Egypt international, having initially demanded £40m.

Liverpool believe that Salah is keen to return to the Premier League despite his unsuccessful 11-month spell in 2014 at Chelsea, who he joined ahead of a move to Anfield at that time.

Salah has since blossomed in Italy but Roma are under pressure to sell as they try to balance their books and the 24-year-old is one of their most marketable assets. Personal terms would not be an issue given that Liverpool are prepared vastly to improve Salah's wages.

It means the winger could become one of Jurgen Klopp's key signings this summer after Liverpool finished in the Champions League places. They have signed Dominic Solanke from Chelsea and are concentrating their efforts on targets such as Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita, the RB Leipzig midfielder.
