Mohamed Salah’s expected move to Liverpool is still a long way from completion, despite the transfer window opening on Wednesday, according to reports.
The FC Basel star has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this month having impressed immensely during his club’s Champions League campaign this season.
Local newspaper the Liverpool Echo reveals that suggestions of the Premier League club agreeing a £7million deal are false.
However, the Metro reports that Brendan Rodgers is still extremely interested in the Egyptian international but will have to offer something in the region of £12million.
The article suggests that Rodgers is keen on completing the move as quickly as possible to bolster his squad ahead of a vital period in the Premier League title race.
Liverpool have fallen to fourth, six points behind leaders Arsenal, despite a comfortable victory over Hull City on New Year’s Day, also leaving them just one point ahead of rivals Everton.
