CaughtOffside understands that the Anfield side have been locked in lengthy talks with the Swiss side but have now come to an agreement on a £9m deal, which would also include incremental additions that could see the cost of the 21 year old attacker amount of £12m.

Salah has impressed at FC Basel over the past 18 months, helping the St. Jakob-Park side secure a domestic double last term and continuing to make an impact this term, scoring 20 goals in 78 appearances from out wide.

Brendan Rodgers has been keen to strengthen this attacking options, perhaps in view of the poor form shown by summer signing Iago Aspas as well as the inability of loaned in Chelsea man Victor Moses to make an impact this season.

Mohamed Salah has primarily been used as a winger at FC Basel but is also very effective when used in an orthodox striking role and his record of 17 goals in 26 appearances for the Egyptian national team is further proof of his potency in front of goal.

Salah has netted twice against Chelsea this season and could well prove a good bit of business by a Liverpool side desperate to secure that all important top four finish this term.
