Roma’s owner has opened up about Liverpool’s £35million move for Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah.
“For now there is nothing. They continue to make offers for many of our players,” James Pallotta is told Italian media.
“If this is the case, three or four of our best players could leave.
“We will see, but to improve we need four or five reinforcements.”
Here is the rest of the Liverpool news from Monday’s papers…
Salah closes in on Liverpool move
Liverpool have made an increased offer with Roma demanding 40 million Euros for the Egyptian winger with negotiations nearing conclusion.
Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa has been in England to conduct talks over the 24-year-old who nearly joined Liverpool in 2014 but went to Chelsea instead.
But Salah is now close to making it second time lucky at Liverpool after his recent form for Roma reignited his career in Serie A.
Salah is believed to be ready to sign a £100,000-a-week deal and is keen for the switch with Liverpool eager to bolster their squad.

Oxlade-Chamberlain ready to snub Liverpool to stay at Arsenal
Liverpool have been chasing the Arsenal midfielder and are desperate to try to lure him to Anfield this summer.
But Arsenal have made it clear they are determined to keep him and have begun talks over a new deal worth in excess of £100,000-a-week.
Arsenal are confident that 23-year-old Oxlade-Chamberlain will snub the chance to move north and join Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to stay at the Emirates.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already moved to try to tie up a deal within the next few weeks.
Carragher becomes even more of a Liverpool legend
More than 70,000 fans were ready to shout “behind you”, as the former Liverpool player – who had his every touch booed during this testimonial – produced the snapping challenge he had promised.
Neville went down in a comedy heap, and at the end, the pair embraced to show their rivalry is now very much of the friendly sort, even if Carragher put it to one side for that moment .
“Here to support XCarrick and his charity, but more importantly to snap @GNev2,” he said on Twitter.
And afterwards, he joked he had delivered on his promise and the two would remain friendly…but that was as far as his generosity would extend.
“I told him what was coming, and to be fair I went easy on him, I don’t know what he is moaning about,” the tv pundit said.
