Liverpool have completed the £39m signing of Egypt international Mohamed Salah from AS Roma.

Salah travelled to Merseyside on Tuesday and underwent his medical at Melwood on Thursday morning before signing a five-year deal to become the most expensive player in Liverpool’s history.

“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy, he said.

“I will give 100 percent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club.

“We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 percent to win something.

“Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”

Liverpool’s previous record transfer was the £35m signing of Andy Carroll from Newcastle in January 2011.

The 25-year-old turned down a move from Swiss side FC Basel to Liverpool to to sign for Chelsea in an £11m deal in January 2014, but left Stamford Bridge after only six Premier League starts to sign on loan for first Fiorentina and then Roma, before making permanent £15m move to the Stadio Olimpico last summer.
