Liverpool were alerted when the pacy forward impressed in Serie A, scoring 29 goals in 65 games for Roma.

Moore, on the other hand, has disclosed that it was the club’s analytics staff, not manager Jurgen Klopp, that pushed for the signing of the 27-year-old. Salah has now gone on to become one of the club’s all-time greats, scoring 89 goals in 137 games.

“Obviously, people see him from Chelsea – remember, he was a Chelsea player – and [Jose] Mourinho didn’t rate him and they let him go,” Moore told Soccer Laduma

For How Much Money did Liverpool sign Salah?

The Egyptian forward joined the Reds from the Serie A side in 2017 for a bargain £36.9 million, later rising to £43.9 million.
