But some supporters won’t be entirely delighted to hear that the Egyptian international is set to take on the No.9 jersey at Anfield, which hasn’t been too kind to its recent incumbents.
It was once a revered and historic shirt, worn by the likes of Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler and Fernando Torres, but in recent years the likes of Andy Carroll haven’t fared so well.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Salah has his heart set on wearing the No.9 when his protracted move from Roma is finally completed, but Carroll, Rickie Lambert, Christian Benteke and Iago Aspas have all struggled under its weight recently.
On top of that, Nicolas Anelka, El-Hadji Diouf and Djibril Cisse are other previous owners in the Premier League era who didn’t exactly tear up trees on Merseyside.
Maybe Salah will fare a bit better, but what do you think?
Are you superstitious about things like this?
