These two exceptional athletes have arguably been the primary driving force behind Liverpool’s remarkable success in recent years.

Salah and Van Dijk remain pivotal figures for Liverpool, with Salah even assuming the role of club captain.

However, as the upcoming summer approaches, both players will find themselves entering the final year of their contracts, necessitating a decision regarding their future.

René van der Gijp, a former Dutch international now working as a pundit, has offered advice to Arne Slot on how to navigate this situation upon assuming the role of Liverpool manager.

He thinks Slot should get rid of both Van Dijk and Salah.

He told Vandaag Inside: “I think Slot would do best to slowly replace guys like Salah and Van Dijk.

“I read that Dortmund would be interested in Van Dijk, instead of Hummels. Then you play in a slightly easier competition.

“Salah also has to leave. That would be best for him. He has performed incredibly, year after year. Now the wear slowly starts to get on a bit. That is not easy.

Mohamed Salah has recently been the subject of much attention following his disagreement with Jurgen Klopp at the London Stadium.

The player and the manager expressed dissatisfaction with each other, with Salah even hinting at potential consequences if he were to discuss the incident further.

Such developments have led to heightened speculation regarding Salah’s future at Liverpool. Nonetheless, Michael Edwards, the club’s sporting director, is resolute in his stance against letting go of the star attacker.

According to Fabrizio Romano’s recent disclosure, Edwards is adamant about retaining Salah, a sentiment likely shared by incoming manager Arne Slot.

Nevertheless, the situation may become intriguing should Salah decline to renew his contract this summer.
