Former Egypt coach Bob Bradley has said he expects Basel's Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah to secure a big move to England during the winter transfer window.

Salah has enjoyed a year to remember, steering Basel to a fourth consecutive Swiss league title and earning rave reviews for his impressive displays with Egypt, although the Pharaohs failed to reach the World Cup in Brazil.

The 21-year-old attacker has scored 10 goals for Basel in all competitions so far this season, including the only goal in their 1-0 victory over Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in the Champions League.

"I was saying yesterday that in Egypt, a great success story in the last two years is a young player called Mohamed Salah," Bradley told the press upon being unveiled as new head coach of Norwegian outfit Stabaek.

England's Daily Mail said Liverpool were set to make a £12 million offer for Salah in the winter transfer window after his superb performances in the Swiss league.

"He left and we helped him to leave Egypt first to FC Basel, and from what I read and hear, in the coming days you will see his name again because I think it will be a big transfer to a Premiership team," Bradley added.
