Chelsea winger, Mohamed Salah has joined Serie A side, AS Roma on a season-long loan deal which comes with an option for the Italian side to sign him on a permanent basis next season.

After failing to secure a starting shirt at Chelsea, Salah was shipped out on loan to Fiorentina for the second half of the season. The Egyptian who happens to be the first man from his country to play for Chelsea proved to be an integral part of the setup at Fiorentina where he scored 9 goals in 26 appearances.
