Liverpool complete signing of Mohamed Salah for an estimated £34m from AS Roma

Liverpool have completed the signing of Mohamed Salah from AS Roma for a fee believed to be around £34m.

The news comes after weeks of speculation, with Liverpool’s approaches for the Egypt international initially being rebuffed by Roma.

But Salah – who recorded 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A last season – was keen on the move, and on Thursday completed his medical to return to the Premier League.
“I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club," Salah told the official Liverpool website. "I really want to win something for this club.

“We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 per cent to win something.

“Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp struggled to find a solution when his side were without Sadio Mane last season, but the German coach believes that Salah could be the man to solve that issue for the title hopefuls.

“His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat and we are already strong in this area," Klopp said. "I like that we will make it even more competitive.

“He knows the Premier League, he has pedigree in the Champions League and he is one of the most important players for his country. His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad. I have followed him since he emerged at Basel and he has matured into a really good player.

“He is an ambitious player who wants to win and win at the highest level; he knows he can fulfil those ambitions with Liverpool. I welcome him and his family into our Liverpool family.”
This is Salah's second spell in the Premier League. The 25-year-old joined Chelsea in an £11m move from Basel three years ago, but struggled for game time at Stamford Bridge and was shipped out on loan to first Fiorentina and then Roma.

Salah completed a permanent move to Roma for £13m last summer.

Watford 0-1 Liverpool: Emre Can stunner keeps Reds in control of top four destiny

Liverpool took a significant step to sealing Champions League qualification as Emre Can scored a goal-of-the-season contender to down Watford on Monday night.

Jurgen Klopp had seen Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal drop points in the battle for the Premier League top four before his side travelled to Vicarage Road - and they took full advantage.

A largely forgettable 90 minutes was settled when Can lit up a cold Hertfordshire evening with a superb volley in first-half stoppage time to clinch a 1-0 win.

The victory moved Liverpool four points clear of United in fifth, although they have played a game more than their bitter rivals.

Watford, on 40 points and all but safe from the drop, were not at the races as they failed to react to captain Troy Deeney's criticism following the recent defeat at Hull.

The opening quarter of the contest was interrupted by injuries as Liverpool lost Philippe Coutinho with less than 10 minutes gone before Miguel Britos hobbled off for the hosts soon after.

Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes was forced into action as he pushed a long-range Can effort away from goal.

The game stuttered along for the majority of the half with very little incident until Adam Lallana, Coutinho's replacement, hit the bar with a looping effort.

Lucas Leiva was then booked for diving as the half threatened to end with a whimper, only for Can to take centre-stage.

The ball was neatly worked in-field from the right and Lucas, the villain of the piece moments earlier, clipped in a cross which Can acrobatically volleyed home to open the scoring on the stroke of half-time.

The startlingly goal seemed to inject fresh belief into Klopp's men and James Milner saw a low free-kick saved soon after the interval - with Gomes also having to turn a Divock Origi strike behind for a corner as Liverpool looked to kill the game off with a second.

Origi should have doubled the lead on 57 minutes but shot tamely at Gomes when through on goal, with the Hornets finally working Simon Mignolet courtesy of an Etienne Capoue strike.

The Frenchman was booked for his protestations as referee Craig Pawson signalled for a goal-kick, but it at least stirred the home fans.

It also lifted the Watford players, although in their attempts to equalise they were almost caught on the counter-attack, with Nordin Amrabat just able to prevent Lallana tucking away a goal on his return.

Can could not repeat his earlier heroics as he ballooned a shot wide and Mignolet made a meal out of a late Daryl Janmaat shot.

As Watford poured forward, Liverpool's goal lived a charmed life with Sebastian Prodl smashing the crossbar with a stoppage-time volley.

This win may have not been as emphatic as the 6-1 drubbing doled out by Liverpool when the sides met in November at Anfield - where Can also scored as the Reds went top of the table for the first time under Klopp.

But, having struggled against sides in the bottom half and with their rivals dropping points, it was just as important for the German and his hopes of a return to Europe's top table.

Get team news, match facts, quotes, odds and more ahead of the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will not turn to a more defensive approach to shut out Liverpool, the Premier League's leading scorers, when the teams meet at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.Guardiola was fiercely criticised for his attack-minded tactics during the Champions League last-16 tie against Monaco, which they lost on away goals as the French side brutally exposed City's fragile defence in a 6-6 aggregate draw.
"No. At the end we have to try," Guardiola told reporters on Friday when asked if he would be making tactical changes for the Liverpool clash.
"We have to defend better. When we create these kind of chances the opponents have to sit back."

Guardiola also rejected reports suggesting City are preparing for a major clear-out in the next transfer window as the manager looks to reshape his squad.

"I have heard people have written that I will change 12 or 13 players. That is impossible. They have contract. You have to pay them," the Spaniard added.

"We will try and improve the team. Next month and a half I expect a huge step forward. Next season will be better. Just because they are out of contract doesn't mean they will all leave. Some will stay."

TEAM NEWS

Manchester City could bring Yaya Toure and Nicolas Otamendi into their starting line-up, with both dropping to the bench for the Monaco match. Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan remain out.

Liverpool will make a late call on Roberto Firmino whilst Dejan Lovren is back from a knee injury. Daneil Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are definitely out whilst Divock Origi is a doubt.

JURGEN KLOPP QUOTES

"I am not in doubt about his [Guardiola's] quality. Maybe a few people are but I am not. I respect him a lot.

"I know probably a few people think (differently) now they are out of the Champions League but I think the way they played was quite impressive as Monaco.

"City could have won the game easily in the second half but because they are human beings they missed a few chances. For me City is the most difficult team to play. I know their image at this moment in this country is a little bit different."
