Liverpool have agreed a club-record fee which could reach £39million for Mohamed Salah, according to a report.
The Roma winger will become the club’s most expensive signing ever, topping the £35million they paid Newcastle for Andy Carroll in January 2011.
Goal report the deal could be announced within 48 hours with Salah set to sign a five-year contract worth around £90,000 a week.
“If there are no hindrances, his signing should be made official by June 22,” claims the report.
Liverpool are believed to have agreed a fee of around £35million up front with a further £4million related to bonuses and performance-related add-ons.
Liverpool’s initial bid of £28million was turned down, but the club have returned with a figure that Roma sporting director Monchi and club owner James Pallotta have agreed to.
As reported late last night the 25-year-old will travel to London tonight and is expected to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours.
Salah will jet into Heathrow from Cairo at 9.05pm tonight, claimed Egyptian journalist Hady Elmedany.

The Egypt star was believed to be on holiday in Egypt but he will break off from that to fly to England and travel to Melwood to seal his move to Liverpool.
Salah helped Roma to a second-placed finish in Serie A last season and a place in next season’s Champions League, scoring 15 goals and claiming 13 assists in 31 league appearances.
He came on to Liverpool’s radar after Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt turned down a move to join Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
