AS Roma right winger Mohamed Salah is on the radar of English Premier League giants Liverpool for a summer move, English newspapers reported on Tuesday.

According to the still-flying rumours, Reds coach Jurgen Klopp -- on the hunt for an attacking midfielder winger -- is eyeing the Egypt star as a back-up option for his first choice: Julian Brandt of Bayer Leverkusen.

Under the helm of Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool bid for Salah in January 2014 but Chelsea snatched him for £11 million.

After a short but successful spell with Chelsea, Salah started playing for Italy's Fiorentina in February 2015 on an 18-month loan deal that he did not complete.

In August 2015, Salah joined Serie A giants Roma in a one season loan deal, one year before the Wolves landed him permanently.

Salah gained his biggest fame with Roma through a series of outstanding performances in more than 60 games.

This season, he has scored 13 league goals in 28 games so far.

The 24-year-old, who started his career with Egyptian outfit Arab Contractors, has been a key player with the Egyptian national team since he joined in 2010.
