20:50: Liverpool spending £40million on Mohamed Salah would be too much money, because he won't start for Jurgen Klopp's side.
That is according to Liverpool legend and pundit Steve Nicol, who has his doubts over the deal.
Nicol believes the likes of Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho would start ahead of Salah if he joined, so £40million on a squad player is too much.
He told ESPN: "It is a lot of money, yeah. It's a lot of money for Liverpool to buy a player, who, if everybody is fit, I don't think starts.
"You play Coutinho on the left, you play Mane on the right. I don't think you play Salah through the middle, that means he doesn't start.
"As far as the squad, obviously Liverpool are in the Champions League yes, but for £40million? I don't think so."
