Liverpool line-up Gelson Martins as Salah replacement – Report
Liverpool are allegedly in talks with Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins as the team fears AS Roma’s Mohamed Salah deal might fall through.
Egypt international Mohamed Salah has been targeted by the English Premier League side and Roma was offered a £28 million bid for the services of the young winger, but Seria A second-placed turned down the offer. It’s been reported that the Giallorossi want €40 million [£35 million] for the 24-year-old while the Reds remain reluctant to meet Roma’s asking price.
It was claimed later that Liverpool are seeking an alternative for Salah in case they fail to complete the deal and now reports in Portugal are claiming that Gelson Martins is the Reds’ second option.
Even though Martins has a release clause of about £50m, Liverpool believes that they can negotiate that price especially that Sporting are facing financial pressures after not automatically qualifying for the Champions League group stage.
