Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Mohammed Salah.
Roma are refusing to lower their £35m asking price for the winger after only signing the player last summer.
New Roma sporting director, Monchi, had insisted that Roma will not be dropping their asking price:
“For Salah there is an offer from an English club but the price will be set by Roma, not the buyers.
“Roma is not a supermarket. Roma is a team that will represent Italy in Europe.
“We came second in Serie A and our idea is to keep as good a team as possible.
“At the same time, no club exists that does not sell players.”
Liverpool are believed to have already agreed £90,000-a-week wages with the Egyptian, but have so far not met the Serie A clubs asking price.
