Liverpool have snapped up Mohamed Salah from Roma, which is sparkling news for Reds fans and fantasy football managers alike.

Jurgen Klopp’s side completed a pierce for the rarely rated Egyptian winger, who changed for £34million.

Some of you may remember Salah’s luckless spell at Chelsea a couple of years ago, but a lot has changed given then.


The 24-year-old has grown into a pivotal player for Roma in the last two seasons, has gone from being a bit-part player at Stamford Bridge to one of only eight players to register doubles total for both goals and assists in Europe’s top 5 leagues last season.

Impressive stuff.

What could this meant for your anticipation football team?

WhoScored, Dream Team’s ratings providers, gave Salah a tasty 7.40 rating in all competitions last season, with his 7.48 rating in Serie A quite juicy.

If you wish some context, he outscored Juventus’ Paulo Dybala (7.46) and Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic (7.28) in the league, having outscored both Serie A stars in goals and assists.

That takes some doing.

Salah’s diversion is all about speed and trickery, while many of his goals for Roma have come from slicing inside from the left-flank.

The prospect of Salah starting for Liverpool alongside Sadio Mane on the conflicting side is definitely mouth-watering, and the Reds could be truly harmful on the renew next season.

  • 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A for Roma last season
  • Had a higher rating (7.48) than Paulo Dybala (7.46) in Italy last season
  • Quick, nippy winger with a point to prove after unsuccessful spell at Chelsea
  • Get him in your Dream Team now

We also expect Salah to get a good series of games under his belt via the season with Liverpool’s return to the Champions League – which could make him a renouned choice for anticipation managers.

Given the values of Salah’s future Liverpool teammates Mane and Roberto Firmino (both £4.5m), we design Salah to start the 2017/18 diversion with around the same value.

How will Salah fit in alongside these two?

When can we sign up?

You can start getting your teams in as early as July 3 2017 – some 6 weeks before the Premier League deteriorate gets underway.

That gives you an extremely prolonged time to guard the send marketplace and select your group accordingly, with Liverpool’s new signing likely to be prohibited on the bulletin for Dream Team managers.

The shutting date for the deteriorate game, therefore, will be the first day of the Premier League campaign on August 12 2017.
