According to reports emanating from Europe, Egypt and Chelsea winger, Mohammed Salah, is set to seal a loan move to Italian side, AS Roma.
After a relatively uneventful start to life in England, the player was loaned out to Italian league side Fiorentina, where he dazzled like a rekindled glowing splint, scoring 6 goals and creating numerous chances for the Fiorentina. Following the resurgence in form, the player is now reportedly unwilling to return to England any time soon.
However, following the sacking of Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella, Salah reportedly became unsettled and allegedly expressed his desire to depart the club, alleging that the new administration had no plans for him, being a loanee. Fellow Serie A sides, Inter Milan, and AS Roma, appeared excited at the development and were looking to capitalize on the player’s situation.
AS Roma, in fact, appear to have leapfrogged Inter- who were once favourited to sign him- to land his services, as reports state that they have recently held talks with the Blues, and have agreed terms to a season-long loan deal.
Even legal action from Fiorentina failed to keep the player at the club. It is now expected that the deal for the player’s loan move would be announced on the club’s official website.
