But Salah's arrival at Liverpool is not exclusively about him proving himself in English football, but fulfilling a dream the Egyptian has admitted he had as a young boy.

"Salah gives you pace and penetration but he doesn't unlock the door like Philippe Coutinho", Redknapp told The Debate on Sky Sports last week, before Salah opened his Liverpool account in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford on Saturday.

"It is a great club. It was a dream for me when I was young to play here one day", the former Roma star admitted. I was playing with a team like Steven Gerrard، Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher.

"I think now, compared to three or four years ago, I can defend more, I can play more tactically, I can finish better than I could before".

"I always like to improve myself".

The Egypt worldwide endured a torrid time at Stamford Bridge, playing just 19 games over a two-year spell that included loan spells at Fiorentina and then Roma. Everyone is happy for me and I can feel that, even in the friendly games.

"I am very happy to be here and I would like to help the team so I am very excited to start in the Premier League games and I think we can win something this year together".

And subsequent impressive stints with Fiorentina and Roma earned him a club record £36million move to Liverpool this summer.

Salah will hope that he too can become an iconic figure for Liverpool, with the 25-year-old certainly possessing the ability that could see him idolised by the club's supporters.
