Report: FSG want to keep Liverpool player at Anfield, action being taken right now
Liverpool’s owners FSG are keen to keep Mohamed Salah around and offer him a new contract, the Athletic say.
Staying at Anfield?
FSG have come under increasing pressure at Liverpool in recent times, with some supporters accusing them of failing to invest enough money.
However, there is said to be a willingness from the American investors to give Salah a much improved contract.
While Liverpool will refuse to smash their wage ceiling, Salah is well on course to become the highest paid player in the club’s history.
Liverpool are apparently already in negotiations with the Egyptian over a new deal, which should secure his future – as he only has two years left on his current contract.
Will he sign?
If Salah was to put pen to paper and commit his future to Liverpool that would be wonderful news for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Salah has been their main goalscorer over a number of seasons and he is showing no signs of slowing down his form.
The Athletic notes that Salah has really caught the eye in Liverpool training this pre-season and his goal on opening day was highly eye-catching.
There is a sense that contract talks are going well, and it may only be a matter of time before all doubts over Salah’s future are cast aside.
