Talks are still ongoing between and Liverpool and Mohamed Salah regarding a new contract, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Salah priceless for Liverpool
The 29-year-old has been an incredible servant for the Reds, scoring 125 goals in 203 appearances since joining from Roma back in 2017 and arguably becoming one of the top players in world football.
Salah’s current Liverpool deal runs until the summer of 2023, but the hope is that he will extend his stay at Anfield beyond that date.

Speaking to Anfield Watch, Romano has provided an update on the current situation, admitting a new contract is still a little way from being agreed.
He outlined: “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.”
The Verdict: No-brainer for the Reds
Extending Salah’s stay at Liverpool has to be one of the most pressing matters to sort this summer, given his enormous influence at the club over the past four seasons.
