Liverpool are ready to table a bumper bid for Basel winger Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool have been trailing the Egyptian for over six months and manager Brendan Rodgers flew to Germany on Wednesday to watch the 21-year-old in action for himself against Schalke in the Champions League, says the Daily Mail.

Basel are now ready to sell their prized asset and want around £15m for a player who has been dubbed 'the Egyptian Messi' following his goals return of 17 in 26 internationals.

Tottenham have also monitored Salah's progress, notably watching him score against Chelsea in the Champions League home and away.
