Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah has revealed that he already had hopes of joining Liverpool during his time as a Chelsea player.

Salah, 25, has been a revelation since completing a move to Anfield in the summer transfer window and has scored 20 goals in his opening 26 appearances for the Merseyside giants.

Are Arsenal sneakily preparing fans for official announcement of Mesut Ozil's deal?

The Egyptian scored his 20th goal in the Reds’ 4-0 defeat of Bournemouth at the weekend – the last Liverpool player to achieve such a feat before Christmas was Ian Rush back in 1986/87.

Asked about his underwhelming spell at Chelsea, Salah told Liverpool’s official website: ‘There was interest from Liverpool when I went to Chelsea, but I think if I’d come at that time maybe things wouldn’t have maybe have gone as well then as they have for me now.

‘Who knows? But I went to Chelsea and everything worked out how it did and now I am here at Liverpool at the right time.

‘When I go somewhere, I am always telling myself “I have to learn from here” – and I know, 100 per cent, I learned a lot from Chelsea; I learned how to be more professional and to become a better person and player.

‘It was a big step in my career and I had a good relationship with the players there – and you could see that when we played them at Anfield recently.’

Salah knew he wanted to play for Liverpool when he first stepped foot on the Anfield turf as a Chelsea player.

He added: ‘It was while I was at Chelsea that I first got to play at Anfield.

‘I can remember I told myself – as I said on my very first day here – “I have to come here one day and play” after I’d experienced that atmosphere.

‘That atmosphere was unbelievable, really. I was very happy to play here against Liverpool – and now I am even happier to play for Liverpool here.’
