Mohamed Salah to arrive before Stoke City game?

Basel winger Mohamed Salah will reportedly be confirmed as a Chelsea player before their FA Cup fourth-round tie with Stoke City after a £12m deal was agreed.

Mohamed Salah is expected to be confirmed as a Chelsea player before their home FA Cup fourth-round tie with Stoke City this afternoon.

The Blues announced on Thursday that they have agreed a £12m deal to sign the Egyptian winger from Basel.

Salah scored in both of the Swiss club's Champions League meetings with Chelsea earlier this season and manager Jose Mourinho has moved to snare the 21-year-old from under the noses of Liverpool, who are thought to have baulked at his asking price.

The West London outfit are in need of attacking midfield reinforcements after selling both Kevin de Bruyne and Juan Mata, who completed his £37.1m switch to Manchester United on Saturday.

According to the Daily Star, Salah's move is poised to go through quickly now that Mata's departure has been finalised and the 21-year-old could be unveiled in a Blues shirt at Stamford Bridge today.
