Liverpool lost a key player on a free transfer this summer. The Reds have seen Gini Wijnaldum depart for PSG and his loss will be felt keenly. We can’t let that happen again. Fabrizio Romano has provided an update as Liverpool negotiate a new contract with Mo Salah.
The Egyptian King
When Liverpool signed Mo Salah from Roma in June 2017 nobody could’ve guessed just how important he would become.
The Egyptian took the Premier League by storm and broke the division’s goal scoring record in his debut season under Jürgen Klopp, netting 32 goals and assisting 10.
Since then he’s fired Liverpool to the Premier League title as well as the European Cup and Club World Cup.

We simply can’t do it without him, he’s one of the most valuable players in the world.
His current deal expires in 2023, meaning we have to tie him down to a new contract in the near future otherwise we could be in a perilous position.
Fabrizio Romano has issued an update on new contract negotiations with Mo Salah, the transfer guru told Anfield Watch:
“This [contract talks between the club and Salah] is not at the final stages yet.
“They [the club and Salah] have been talking but nothing is advanced yet.”
What RTK has to say
If we let him get to 2022 without an extension then we could be in trouble.
The sharks will circle and in the modern game this would put a huge amount of power in Mo Salah’s hands.
He could run down his contract and command an almighty signing on fee.
Fingers crossed we get this tied up in the near future so we can focus on planning for the future, certain of his involvement.
