Liverpool new contracts

This summer has seen Liverpool secure the long term futures of a number of players.

We’ve tied down the spine of the side to long term contracts, keeping our most important squad members around for the better parts of their careers.

Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold have committed to deals until 2026.

Meanwhile, Alisson Becker has signed a deal lasting until 2027.

Virgil van Dijk’s new contract runs until 2025 and skipper Jordan Henderson is believed to be close to penning a three year extension.

Talks ongoing

According to The Athletic, Liverpool are hard at work tying more players down to new deals.

The Reds are said to have opened talks with Mo Salah.

The Egyptian King will allegedly command the most expensive wage packet the club has ever paid.

In addition the club are believed to be talking to Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane about new deals.

Firmino sale?

The Athletic previously reported that the front three won’t be allowed to grow old together at the club.

Therefore, Mane and Salah being offered new contracts must hint that Roberto Firmino could be on his way out.

Whether that be this summer or next it appears as though the Brazilian will be the first of the front three to be replaced.

The decision makes sense in that we do need to upgrade and sign an out and out number nine.

However, surely it’d make more sense to replace him this summer rather than next year when he’ll be worth a fraction of the price as he enters the final year of his deal?
