Liverpool have reportedly been locked in talks with Roma this week over a proposed transfer for Mohamed Salah.
Sky Sports Italia claim the Egypt international has verbally agreed to join the Reds, with a £90,000-a-week contract in the pipeline.
The two clubs are reportedly yet to a settle on a transfer fee for the 24-year-old.
However, the winger's friend Mohammad Saadon Alkuwari, who is a presenter for broadcaster beIN Sports, has dropped a big hint the deal is now done.

Taking to twitter, Alkuwari wrote to his 1.4million followers : "Mohamed Salah, can we say congratulations? #EPL"
The remark would suggest Salah's move to Liverpool is nearing completion – three years on from the Reds’ failed attempts to sign him.
The former Basel man came close to joining the Anfield club in 2014 but instead joined Chelsea.
But his career never took off at Stamford Bridge and after just 19 appearances he left on loan to Fiorentina, before signing for Roma last year.
