It may have been a quiet summer for Liverpool so far in terms of incomings, but behind the scenes, they’ve been busy tying down their prized assets to new, long-term contracts.
The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho and Alisson Becker have all committed their futures to the Anfield outfit, while club captain Jordan Henderson is expected to follow suit.
And now, arguably the club’s most important player, Mohamed Salah, of all could be set to put pen to paper on fresh terms, ending speculation over what’s in store for the Eygpt international over the next few years.
According to The Athletic’s Liverpool reporter James Pearce, the Reds have entered into talks with the 29-year-old over a new deal, with his current one set to expire in 2023.
Pearce’s report reads: “The Athletic understands negotiations are already underway over a new contract that would be the most expensive in club history.
“Salah’s current one, worth around £200,000 per week, runs until the end of next season, and the hope is he will commit his future for a further two years. By July 2025, he will be 33 years old.”
Since returning to English shores four years ago, Salah’s incredible consistency has seen him score a quite outrageous 126 goals in 204 goals for the Anfield outfit.
The Egyptian ace has also racked up 49 assists for Liverpool, showcasing his ability to be both the provider and finisher and has fired Jurgen Klopp’s charges to a Premier League title and Champions League crown during his time at the club.
Pearce’s latest report will reassure Liverpool fans that their star forward is here to stay and leave them buzzing with excitement.
The well-known and respected journalist claims that senior club sources have described the ongoing discussions so far as “productive”, and that there’s certainly no concern that a compromise has yet to be reached.
If Salah does sign a new contract then it would surely go down as Liverpool’s best piece of business in the current window, ensuring Klopp has the services of one of the sports top performances to call upon for the foreseeable future.
Fans will be absolutely buzzing with Pearce’s latest news.
