Liverpool target Mohamed Salah will fly to England tonight to seal a move to Anfield, according to a report.

Salah will jet into Heathrow from Cairo at 9.05pm tonight before undergoing a medical and finalising personal terms, claims Egyptian journalist Hady Elmedany

The Reds and Roma have yet to agree a fee for the former Chelsea player, but the two clubs are believed to be close to agreeing a fee after talks over the last few weeks.

Liverpool’s initial bid of £28million was turned down with Roma looking for around £40million for the 25-year-old winger.

The compromise is likely to be around the £35million mark with Roma sporting director Monchi and club owner James Pallotta both heading to London to work on the deal.

Roma will insist on the majority of the £35million fee up front with the remainder in bonuses and appearance-related add-ons.

Salah is currently 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.
