Official: African Announced As Jurgen Klopp's First 2017/18 Transfer
Premier League side Liverpool have made an African star their first signing ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
The Merseyside club has confirmed that they have signed former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah from Serie A side Roma for £34.3 million (R563 million).
Including all the add-ons in his contract, the Egypt international will become the Reds' most expensive signing ever, eclipsing the £35 million (R574 million) the club spent on Andy Carroll from Newcastle United in January 2011.
“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy," the African told the club's official website.
“I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. 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.”
Salah will be hoping his second stint in the Premier League will be a much happier one – he struggled to make an impact with Chelsea during a failed spell between 2014 and 2016.
The 25-year-old made 41 appearances for Roma last season, scoring 19 goals and assisting 15 strikes.
