Liverpool have ramped up their interest in Mohamed Salah after a host of other European clubs joined the race for the Basle winger.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is a huge admirer of highly-rated Salah, who has been dubbed ‘the Egyptian Messi’ because of his superstar performances.

Liverpool have been following his progress closely, and despite initially putting off a move until the summer, they’ve since been prompted to move now with a number of other clubs keen.

AC Milan, Napoli, Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Monaco are just few of the outfits believed to have approached Basle to discuss a move for Salah, and Rodgers is determined not to miss out.

According to reports, Liverpool are working on a £9million offer for the 21-year-old, which will be officially submitted in the coming days.
