Mohamed Zika tells Egyptian TV that close friend Mohamed Salah will join Liverpool from Basel in January [Video]
- December 19, 2013
What a transfer window curveball!
Completely from leftfield, an authoritative source has disclosed that Basel’s rising Egyptian star -twice the scourge of Chelsea this season – is set to join Liverpool, this January!
His close friend and former teammate Mohamed Zika told Egyptian TV that his friend told him this at a recent wedding, and when asked to confirm the shock news, Zika said:
Basically, yes. Inshallah (if God wills).”
“He makes us and all of Egypt proud. Everyone talks about Mohamed Salah now. And aside from that he’s my friend, so I’m even happier for him.”
Salah’s been making a name for himself with Basel for the last two years, and exploded onto the radar this season with stand-out displays in the Champions League group stage, and has a market value of €12million, which Liverpool are believed to be more than prepared to pay.
Video of Mohamed Zika telling Egyptian TV (in Arabic) that his friend Mohamed Zalah is ‘99%’ sure to join Liverpool in January can be seen below.
