Liverpool odds-on favourites to sign Mohamed Salah

Many are expecting a big summer transfer window from Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp looks to build a side that can improve upon a fourth-place finish last season and give a decent account of themselves in the Champions League, but the Anfield outfit are yet to get any major deals over the line.

However, the latest odds from 888Sport suggest a deal for one player could be just around the corner, with Liverpool now odds-on favourites to sign former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah at 1/5.

The Egyptian international, who has bagged 29 goals for his country, hardly got a look-in at Stamford Bridge but has gone on to establish himself as one of the best attacking players in Serie A since leaving the club, finishing last season with 15 goals and eleven assists in the Italian top flight.

Pacey, tricky and potent in front of goal, Salah already seems like the perfect stand-in for Sadio Mane, whose injuries last season affected Liverpool’s results dearly.
