Transfer talk

REDS CLOSING IN ON SALAH

Liverpool are close to agreeing on a £35 million (S$62 million) deal for Roma's Mohamed Salah, with reports suggesting the Egypt winger could finalise a move to Anfield this week.

Talks have been continuing between the parties for some time, and Roma rejected an initial £28 million bid from Liverpool a few days ago. However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is determined to acquire Salah, and with the player also believed to be keen on the switch, it appears an agreement is close to being reached.

The Paris Saint-Germain star is seen as a replacement for Arda Turan, who is tipped to leave Camp Nou this summer.

Di Maria could be new Barca coach Ernesto Valverde's first big-name signing.
