Liverpool have rekindled their interest in signing Mohamed Salah in the summer transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp is looking for a pacey forward who can play anywhere in the front three. The 24-year-old is capable of playing on the wide positions or as a centre forward.

The winger has scored 13 goals and registered 10 assists in 28 Serie A appearances for Luciano Spalletti's side. His form for Roma has seen him attract interest from Liverpool, who are keen on securing his services, if they secure a place in next season's Champions League.

Salah came close to joining the Merseyside club in January 2014. He was at Basel and the Reds were keen on securing his services. However, Chelsea entered the race and the winger snubbed Liverpool's advances in order to make a switch to Stamford Bridge.

Klopp wants to build a strong squad in order to challenge in the Champions League next season and has identified Salah as a transfer target. He has used the trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho to lead his side's attack.

Daniel Sturridge's future at Anfield beyond this season remains doubtful due to his injury woes. Should Liverpool sign Salah, he is likely to bolster their attack for the next season.

After a disappointing spell at the west London club, Salah joined Fiorentina on loan in February 2015. He initially agreed an 18-month loan deal, only to break the deal the same summer in order to complete a loan switch to AS Roma. Salah finally joined the Giallorossi on a permanent transfer in 2016.

The Egyptian international has already revealed his admiration for Liverpool. He confirmed that it was the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho who convinced him to reject the Reds for the Blues in January 2014.

"Liverpool had wanted me for a number of months. They had opened talks in October 2013, Salah said in April 2016.

"Negotiations took a long time, because Basel rejected more than one offer. They felt the transfer fee was not that high. I was waiting for Liverpool because I really like Liverpool. I was eager to join them.

"But then I received a phone call from Mourinho and that changed everything. He explained the situation to me and told me that he needed me at Chelsea. That was one of the main reasons why I joined Chelsea. Mourinho told me that he thought I was a good player and that he wanted me to pick Chelsea."
