Liverpool joined by Serie A giants in transfer race to sign Chelsea star

Roma have joined the race to sign Chelsea star Mohamed Salah, reports talkSPORT.

Liverpool and Inter Milan are also keen on the 23-year-old, according to the Daily Express, but the situation is complicated by Fiorentina already having a deal in place with the Blues to take the Egypt international on loan until next summer.

The winger joined La Viola last January, but he doesn’t want to return for next season as was agreed when he first arrived. Salah is eyeing a move to the Nerazzurri, but with both i Lupi and the Anfield outfit interested it could make the wideman change his mind.

However, all three sides may not make a move for the former FC Basel ace until his situation with Fiorentina has been sorted out. Liverpool fear UEFA sanctions for the clubs involved and do not want to become embroiled in the furore according to the Express.

Roma are also unsure about getting involved with their Serie A rivals, but are still hopeful a deal can be arranged, report talkSPORT.

Salah has failed to make an impact at Chelsea since arriving in 2014, but showed his potential at the back end of the last campaign. In 16 games in the Italian top flight the midfielder managed six goals and three assists, which is what caused this saga to begin.
