Chelsea looking to hijack €18m Liverpool target


The transfer window is now getting crazier with every passing hour. According to Sky Italy, Chelsea have joined the race to sign Mohamed Salah, who is also a target of Liverpool.


We reported few hours back that Egyptian media KingFut claimed that Liverpool have agreed a deal with Salah. The 21-year-old will fly to Merseyside to complete the deal with the official announcement could be completed within the end of this week.

However, according to Sky Italy, Liverpool are not alone in the race, as fellow Premier League rivals Chelsea have joined them too.

According to renowned journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea have offered €10m plus bonuses for Salah, but the Londoners were told to cough up €18m for the winger, who is often dubbed as the Egyptian Messi.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano further added that Chelsea are looking for a replacement of midfielder Juan Mata, who is on the verge of joining Manchester United, and therefore have taken a keen interest in the Egyptian.

Di Marzio added that Liverpool have offered €12m for the winger but with no bonuses. At the moment, it seems like Basel will not agree to sell the player unless they get a hefty fee and it could all boil down to the player’s preference.

What we can fathom is that the deal is far being done and there could be more drama involved in it. We will bring you the latest update as we get.

The Transfer Lens - Micah Richards to Arsenal? Goran Pandev to Tottenham?


  1. Muhammed Salah is not Chelsea’s problem, chelsea should serch seriously for a player that can really help them out this season in terms of goal scoring

  2. Salah is a good player,energytic & posses the needed ability required of a player.He also posses other great excellence qualities .To this end,there’s nothing wrong if he ends at the Bridge.

  3. The truth is that man united should hide their face in shame. First they bought RVP from Arsenal. Was Arsenal not a rival club? Now they shamelessly want to buy Mata from Chelsea as if its not a rival club. But they forced Rooney to stay out of petty and parochial selfishness that they will not sell to a rival. Is Chelsea no longer a rival. I blame Mou for listening at all. Chelsea should by Diego Costa at once pls. Were need him.

  4. Why must Chelsea go for any player Liverpool goes for?After snatching Williems from Liverpool last summer,as if that was not enough.Liverpool is the ideal club for him except of course he wants to rust on the bench @ Chelsea.
