Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has finalised his work permit following his move from AS Roma, ensuring his availability for selection against Wigan Athletic.

The 25-year-old was required to leave England and return again to secure his visa, departing for Paris on Tuesday to visit the British Embassy.

This saw the winger miss out in Wednesday night’s 4-0 friendly victory away to Tranmere Rovers, as Liverpool kicked off pre-season with a comfortable win.

But the club have confirmed that Salah is now eligible for selection, which could see him make his first outing against the Latics on Friday.

Liverpool take to the DW Stadium for their final domestic friendly of the summer, before heading out to Hong Kong for the Premier League Asia Trophy.

After clashes with Crystal Palace and either Leicester City or West Brom, Jurgen Klopp‘s side will then head to Germany for a training camp near Munich.

Their time in Klopp’s homeland will take in a 125th anniversary showcase at Hertha Berlin, before their involvement in the Audi Cup alongside Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.

Finally, they head to Dublin for a friendly against La Liga side Athletic Bilbao, before beginning the 2017/18 campaign away to Watford on August 12.

Salah will be hoping to settle in quickly within his new side, and an appearance against Wigan will give him his first chance to impress Klopp in a Liverpool shirt.

Having reported for pre-season training on Saturday, it is likely that Salah will feature on Friday night.

Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho will be among those also considered for a place in Klopp’s squad to make the short trip over to Greater Manchester.
