Liverpool have only signed one player this summer. The Reds bought Ibrahima Konate before the window even opened. However, the club hasn’t been resting on its laurels, plenty of important business has been done in tying players down to long term deals. According to The Times, if Liverpool want Mo Salah to sign a new contract it’ll take the biggest offer in the club’s history.
Liverpool contract spree
Before the window opened the Reds addressed the most glaring problem in the side: the centre of defence.
Ibrahima Konate was signed from RB Leipzig in order to add vital quality in depth to an injury hit part of the side.
Since then we’ve only seen departures and new deals but the new deals have been incredibly important.
Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold have signed up until 2026.
Meanwhile, Alisson Becker has penned an extension until 2027.
Most recently we saw Virgil van Dijk agree to a new contract which keeps him at the club until 2025 and Jordan Henderson is expected to extend for another three years.
Liverpool to give Mo Salah new contract
The Reds are yet to get the Egyptian King to pen an extension.
The winger’s current deal expires in 2023 and the club will surely be fearful of letting him enter the final year.
According to The Times, Liverpool are hoping to tie Mo Salah down to a new contract and the player wants to stay.
However, the club are also said to be aware that they will have to make the biggest offer in the club’s history to keep the goal machine at Anfield.
What RTK has to say
He’s worth it.
The 29-year-old still has a few years left in the tank and he’ll be at the top of the game for those years.
We can’t afford to lose him on a free or be forced into a cheap sale.
The Reds tying Mo Salah down to a new contract means if we do cash in on him we can demand a much higher fee. We just simply have to get this deal done.
