Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah seems poised to extend his stay with the club, as latest reports suggest.
Last summer, Salah was a prime target for Saudi Arabia’s Pro League, with Al-Ittihad reportedly considering a world-record transfer bid.
Despite the hefty interest, Liverpool managed to retain Salah, their prized possession. However, as his contract winds down, the club may face renewed challenges in the upcoming season.
By the end of this season, Salah will enter the final year of his contract, prompting Liverpool to consider their options: selling him to avoid a free transfer in 2025 or securing his long-term commitment. Currently, securing a new contract for Salah appears increasingly probable for Liverpool.
In recent times, Liverpool had been scouting for potential replacements for Salah, should he decide to leave. However, given the latest developments, the club have minimized their search, expecting Salah to remain with them.
Even as he reaches the later stages of his career, the 31-year-old continues to be a pivotal figure for Liverpool. This season, he has impressively netted 18 goals in 27 matches.
Following their 4-2 win against Newcastle on Monday night, Liverpool have taken a three-point lead at the summit of the Premier League.
Up next, Klopp’s side is scheduled to play against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup’s third round.
However, Salah won’t feature in that match. He has linked up with the Egyptian national team for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
During his absence, Liverpool might be without their leading goal scorer for approximately eight matches across various competitions as he represents his country at AFCON.
