The Italians are keen on Salah.
Chelsea attacking midfielder Mohamed Salah has emerged as a loan target for AS Roma who will only offer £380,000 to land the 22-year-old until the end of next season, reports the London Evening Standard.
Salah has struggled to establish himself at Stamford Bridge since completing an £11m transfer from FC Basel in January 2014 and manager Jose Mourinho wants to move the Egypt international on.
Roma have shown interested as summer signing Juan Iturbe has failed to make the impact at the Stadio Olimpico that was hoped, but the Serie A side are looking to be frugal with their funds.
As of September last year the Italians learned they were being investigated by UEFA concerning the Financial Fair Play rule and therefore want to be especially careful when looking to sign new talent.
They would like to sign Salah on an initial 18-month loan with the option of making that permanent for £10.7m in the summer of 2016.
Mourinho would be tempted by getting the Egyptian off his books as it would give him the opportunity to sign a superior replacement, but whether the 51-year-old would be keen on this particular deal is unknown.
