The Egypt global moved to Liverpool in a club-record £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in June.

Liverpool have had a relatively quiet transfer window this summer with Dominic Solanke, Andrew Robertson and Salah the only new recruits at Anfield. "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", said Salah.

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.

Speaking to Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday, Salah claimed, "It is a great club. When I had the chance to come, I was thinking about whether I should stay in Rome or move here but because when I was young, it was a dream to me, I took the decision to come back (to the Premier League)".

"I would play as Liverpool on the PlayStation so I am happy to be here now".

"I'm always looking for where I can improve myself so here, because of the city, because of the fans, you can feel the emotions and everyone wants to win something". I was playing with a team like Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher.

However, the 25-year-old has insisted he is now a much-improved player and expects to impress at Anfield.

The Merseyside club next play Hoffenheim in the Champions League playoff round on Tuesday before they face Crystal Palace in their next Premier League match. Everyone is happy for me and I can feel that, even in the friendly games.
