Various media outlets have mentioned different figures as far as the price is concerned. BBC reported that Liverpool did not break their transfer record and only paid 34 million pounds to lure the former Chelsea attacker.

However, AS Roma have mentioned figures on their official website and claimed that they reached an agreement worth 50 million euros ($55.8million) to sell the winger to Liverpool. The agreement included an initial fee of 42 million euros and further 8 million euros in add-ons.
This basically means that Liverpool have actually broken their club transfer record to secure the signature of the 25-year-old star. Why did the Reds not mention that it was a record deal?
Liverpool do need to sign more quality players and reports have suggested that they may break the transfer record multiple (Mirror) times this summer. So we can assume that Klopp will lure someone, who will cost even more than Salah and then announce the record transfer only once.
Not to forget, the Reds are heavily linked with Leipzig’s Naby Keita, who is rated over 50 million pounds (via Mirror).
