Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has indicated to Talksport that he has not given up hope of signing Mohamed Salah.
Chelsea yesterday agreed a fee with Basel for the 21-year-old Egyptian midfielder, who had been tipped to move to Anfield.
But Rodgers said: “I’m not sure whether that deal is definitely done yet or not.
“The young guy is a good player. We have tracked him for a number of months – the club has been watching him and I have been to watch him.
“It is one where the agent of the player and the clubs were talking but if the deal can’t be done, the deal can’t be done.
“I know the club has been working very hard to get players in. I’ll leave that to them and see how they get on.”
