Mohamed Salah joins Liverpool from AS Roma on a long-term contract.

The 25-year-old, who completed his medical on Thursday, will officially become an LFC player on July 1,2017.

The Egyptian is now the most expensive player in Liverpool’s history, after the Merseyside club reportedly agreed a £39m deal with Serie A side.

Upon joining, Salah told the club’s official website: “I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy. 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.”

Liverpool manager Klopp, who’s really excited about his new no. 11, told “Mohamed has the perfect mix of experience and potential – this is a really exciting signing for us. He knows the Premier League, he has pedigree in the Champions League and he is one of the most important players for his country.

“His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad. I have followed him since he emerged at Basel and he has matured into a really good player. His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat and we are already strong in this area. I like that we will make it even more competitive.

“Most important though, for us, is that he is hungry, willing and eager to be even better and improve further. He believes in what we are trying to do here at Liverpool and is extremely keen to be part of it. He is very excited about performing for our wonderful supporters.

“He is an ambitious player who wants to win and win at the highest level; he knows he can fulfil those ambitions with Liverpool. I welcome him and his family into our Liverpool family.”

The former Chelsea man, who scored 15 goals in 31 league appearances this season, becomes club’s second signing after young Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke.
