Mohamed Salah admits he has a "point to prove" after completing his £36.9m move to Liverpool from Roma.

Though he is Liverpool's second signing of the summer, he is the first to be officially unveiled, with Dominic Solanke unable to join until his contract with Chelsea expires on July 1.

'I like to play here in the Premier League.

"Now I'm here and I'm very happy to be here".

"Everyone can see the coach gives everything".

Klopp will now have to figure how he wants to form his attacking line with Salah in the mix alongside Liverpool players like Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino.

The Reds will pay the Italian club an initial fee up front and with add-ons the deal could be worth £39m, which will make Salah the club's most expensive signing.

Streller added that Salah can thrive when his team dominate the ball and believes that the former Chelsea winger is a flawless fit for Liverpool.

The attack has raised tensions in London , which had suffered three previous extremist attacks in the last three months.

Liverpool tried to sign Salah four years ago, but he opted to join Chelsea instead.

The Egyptian midfielder has been in brilliant form for Roma in the recently concluded campaign and has been backed to perform at a similar level for the Merseyside club this season.

The Egypt global represents the first major signing of the summer at Anfield, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp keen to strengthen his squad ahead of his side's return to the Champions League. "His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat". I like to play here in the Premier League.

"His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad".

Even though there is a big buzz among Liverpool supporters about the Reds' new no.11, it's not just fans that are excited about the former Chelsea man with his new teammates looking forward to playing with him.

"I have followed him since he emerged at Basle and he has matured into a really good player".

Roma snapped him up on a permanent basis last summer and he repaid them with a series of impressive displays in Serie A.
