After a couple of false starts with Chelsea and Fiorentina, the now 27-year-old strike has risen to become the most popular footballer in the Arab World.

A stellar season with Roma in 2016/2017 prompted a club-record $46m bid from Liverpool. In his first season at Anfield, he scored 44 goals in 52 games and powered the club to the Champions League Final. This year, he led the team to a Champions League victory against Tottenham Hotspur.
