Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans have been buzzing over an update regarding star player Mohamed Salah and his potential new deal at the club.
The Egyptian, who has played a vital role under manager Jurgen Klopp since he signed from AS Roma in the summer of 2017, definitely played his part over what was a difficult 2020/21 campaign. Blighted by injury problems, Liverpool couldn’t retain their Premier League crown as they watched Manchester City clinch domestic glory.
Who should get a new Liverpool deal next?
Virgil van Dijk
However, Salah remained imperious with his individual displays – scoring 22 goals and setting up five more in the Premier League alone whilst attempting more shots on goal per match (3.4) than any other Liverpool player (WhoScored).
He explained that FSG and the club are eager to reward the 29-year-old with a contract which will make him the highest-paid player in Liverpool’s history. Indeed, an increase on Salah’s current £200,000-per-week salary will even take him above the record shared by him and former Reds star Luis Suarez.
Buzzing over this “massively significant” update, many Reds fans took to Twitter in sheer joy over Liverpool’s stance – check out some of their best responses to LFC Transfer Room, Anfield Watch and Liverpool News below.
