Liverpool are still in the fight for Basel winger Mohamed Salah, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Reds have been linked with the player dubbed ‘the Egyptian Lionel Messi’ for some time, with certain rumours suggesting that a deal for him to move to Anfield was in place prior to the opening of the transfer window.

A former team-mate of the winger stated that Salah to Liverpool was 99% done, while his former national team coach Bob Bradley also hinted that he expected the 21-year-old to join the Merseysiders.

However, a switch has not occurred, with speculation suggesting that Basel have increased their valuation in recent weeks.

Brendan Rodgers was thought to have been confident that a £7m-£8m offer was enough for Salah, but now the Swiss giants are believed to be demanding around double that figure.

The Northern Irishman is set to sit down with the club’s board ahead of the weekend game with Aston Villa, with transfer dealings and budgets on the agenda.

Liverpool are also tracking Verona’s Jorginho. The Brazilian-born Italy U-21 star is also wanted by Napoli, and could be available for around £5.5m.
