Player profile

Born in Basyoun, Egypt on 15th June 1992, Salah began his professional career in his homeland with El Mokawloon. When the Egyptian league season was suspended in March 2012 following a stadium disaster at Port Said, Salah was signed by Swiss side Basel after impressing against them in a friendly for Egypt under 23's.

Salah helped Basel to the Swiss league title and semi-finals of the Europa League in 2012-13, eventually going out on to Chelsea. In January 2014 he signed for Chelsea, preferring a move to Stamford Bridge when there was also interest from Liverpool. He failed to make an impression there and was loaned to Fiorentina for the second half of 2014-15. Salah stayed in Italy for 2015-16, on loan with Roma who he joined on a permanent deal in the summer of 2016.  

Salah reignited his career in Rome, scoring 29 goals in 65 league appearances from wide positions. His ability to cross the ball as well as cut in and shoot attracted the attention of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp who paid a new club record fee to bring him to Anfield. Salah scored in his first pre-season game at Wigan on 14th July and big things are expected of him in 2017-18.
