Roma winger Mohamed Salah said on Monday he is eyeing more success in the next season as he looks to win titles with his club and the Egyptian national team.

In his first season with Roma, the international ace took the Serie A by storm, scoring 14 goals in 34 matches to help the Giallorossi end the season in third place with 80 points, 11 behind champions Juventus.

"I think it was a good season, but we did not win any titles and this is a problem," Salah told the AS Roma twitter account when asked about his season with the team.

"I hope to win a title with Roma to make our fans happy."

The 24-year-old added that he has two dreams to realise with Egypt; winning the upcoming African Cup of Nations and helping the team reach the 2018 World Cup.

The Pharaohs are on the verge of reaching the continental tournament for the first time since 2010, and need to avoid a 4-0 loss against minnows Tanzania in the last game of their qualifying campaign to secure a place in next year's competition.

Egypt reached the final qualifying round of the World Cup and are waiting for the final draw as they are looking for their first appearance in the world tournament since Italy 1990.

"It is my objective [to qualify for the World Cup] and I work for that every day," Salah said.

When asked whether he would return to the Egyptian League at some point in his career, the former Arab Contractors players said "anything is possible, but I don't control the future."
