Wages for the lads

This summer Liverpool are expected to offer out a number of new deals.

There is a host of players entering the final two years of their stay and as a result the club want to extend their contracts.

Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Alisson and Fabinho are all expected to put pen to paper on extensions to keep them at the club during their prime years.

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will be offered new deals to reward them for their performances.

Since then he’s become a modern day icon of the club, celebrated with his own song sung by Kopites far and wide.

What RTK has to say

This makes sense.

It’s time to start the regeneration of the attacking line.

Liverpool selling Roberto Firmino this summer or next is in everybody’s interest.

He has been a fantastic servant to the club but we need to upgrade, we need an out and out finisher.

Bobby is too good to be sat on the bench at Anfield, he still has a few years left in him. He could dominate in the Italian Serie A.
