Liverpool are piling all of their efforts into agreeing a deal for Basel’s Mohamed Salah, with interest in the winger from rival sides increasing, according to reports from The Metro.

The Reds have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old – who has been dubbed Egypt’s own Lionel Messi – with some rumours suggesting a move to Anfield was all but sealed.

However, it appears that such speculation was been wide of the mark, with news having emerged that a swoop is not as close to being finalised as originally thought.

This has left the door ajar for a number of other sides also interested in the wide-man, which may threaten Liverpool’s hopes of making him their first arrival of 2014.

The likes of AC Milan, Napoli, Monaco and Valencia are all believed to be watching Salah, which has forced the Merseyside club to ramp up their efforts.

It is thought that a £9m transfer is being worked on, and could be made official in the coming days.

Salah himself is said to have made Liverpool first choice option, which could help Brendan Rodgers’ side to see off interest from rivals.

    He is just one player Liverpool MUST have because the team needs some reliable players like him in the wings.
