What happened to the three that Liverpool bought with Mo Salah, and where are they now?

Now this may seem abnormal, but the main question we all asked ourselves in the summer of 2017, when Liverpool paid 42 million euros to Roma for Mohamed Salah, was whether the Egyptian can keep up with the pace of the Premier League.

After not getting a real chance at Chelsea, Salah shone in Italy with the teams of Fiorentina and Roma before returning to England.

His recruitment was one of a total of four transfers the Reds made before the start of the 2017/18 season, and in January Liverpool made another groundbreaking transfer for the Jurgen Klopp era – the recruitment of Virgil van Dyke from Southampton.

However, here are the other additions to Liverpool in the summer of 2017, apart from Salah, and what happened to them after that:

He arrived nine days after Salah as a free agent from Chelsea, but a tribunal ruled that Liverpool had to pay three million pounds to the “blues” for his development, as he was not yet 18 years old.

However, he managed to score only one goal with the Reds – in the 4-0 defeat over Brighton, and a year and a half after his landing at Anfield was sold to second division Bournemouth for an impressive 19 million pounds.

Last season, Solanke became the big star of the “cherries”, scoring 28 goals in the Championship, which helped the team to finish in second place and win a direct promotion to the Premier League.

It was bought for eight million pounds from the second division Hull – what a deal! Subsequently, Robertson became not only a permanent fixture, but also one of the best in the world in his position.

With Liverpool, the Scot won the title in England, becoming European and world club champion. And one of the big favorites of Anfield fans.

He was also part of all the great successes of Liverpool, but, unlike Robertson, there was little credit for them.

And serious money was paid for him. The Reds pulled in £ 35m to take him from Arsenal, with Ox being considered the next big English midfielder. However, this never happened, and the injuries had their say.

The 28-year-old midfielder’s contract with Merseyside expires next summer, with interesting rumors about his future linking him to Manchester United.
