Reports on Tuesday morning claim Liverpool have resumed talks with Italian side AS Roma over the signing of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah.
The Reds had a £28 million bid for the 24-year-old turned down two weeks ago, and Roma are said to be holding out for nearer £40 million.
A compromise fee of £35 million has been mentioned and seems more possible, although the initial payments and add-ons may be something the two clubs are yet to agree on.
A report in Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport explains that the player is keen for a return to the Premier League and his agent has been working on bringing the clubs closer together on the valuation.
They claim that the deal could be announced after the international break, with Egpyt having played against Tunisia on Sunday and the player returning to Italy. They add that the fee will be not far off 40 million euros (£35 million).
Salah scored 19 and assisted 15 goals in all competitions last season. He missed just three games due to an ankle injury.
