English Premier League side Liverpool are on the verge of signing Mohamed Salah for a club record fee as the Egypt winger was given permission by AS Roma to undergo a medical at the club on Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported.
Mohamed Salah's proposed move from Roma to Anfield seems to be finally on the verge of completion after a series of developments overnight, with the Egyptian worldwide forward finally on his way to England to undergo a medical with the Merseyside outfit.
It's added that an agreement on a fee and payment structure is close but not yet in place, with Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards expected to hold talks with his Roma counterpart Monchi in the next 24 hours.
EgyptAir swiftly deleted the tweet, triggering even more speculation, presumably after realising how their tweet could have given the move away.More news: Spotify is letting record labels pay to promote songs in users' playlists

A deal worth £35.2 million, surpassing the previous figure set by Andy Carroll's 2011 arrival, has finally been agreed with Roma and could rise to £39m in total.
Liverpool had an initial bid of £28m rejected earlier this month, but Salah met with Jurgen Klopp in Liverpool as discussions continued between the clubs.
He would go on to make only 19 appearances for the Stamford Bridge club and had spells on loan with Fiorentina and Roma, who he joined on a permanent deal in August 2016.
Salah is set to link up with the likes of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in a formidable attacking set up at Liverpool next season, as the Reds prepare for their return to Champions League football.
