Mohamed Salah could stand in the way of Liverpool completing £80million transfer

Liverpool face one major obstacle as they eye the transfer of Roma goalkeeper Alisson this summer, with Mohamed Salah’s move from the same club last summer a potential issue.

This is according to the Times, who claim the Reds are after the £80million-rated shot-stopper, but that the Italian giants are still bitter about losing Salah to the Merseysiders on the cheap last year.

The Egypt international moved from Roma to Liverpool for just £36.9m, says the Times, and of course went on to enjoy an absolutely stunning season.

Few could have seen it coming from Salah, but 44 goals, a Golden Boot and PFA Player of the Year win later and the 25-year-old is now regarded as being up there with the very best in the world.

Mohamed Salah’s transfer between Roma and Liverpool could hurt the Reds in their pursuit of Alisson

£80m for Alisson would still be very good money for a goalkeeper, but the Times suggest Roma may charge a ‘Salah tax’ and up his price.

This certainly gives Liverpool a major disadvantage if other top clubs also show interest in the talented Brazil international, who could likely make the step up to most big teams in world football right now.
