Liverpool’s squad ranked on wages after Salah becomes best-paid player at Anfield

Liverpool’s squad ranked on wages after Salah becomes best-paid player at Anfield -Liverpool News

Liverpool have often been praised for their modest wage bill in comparison to other top six clubs.  That, and the Anfield transfer model of sell to buy, makes them one of the most sustainable clubs in England, which in turn makes their success under Jurgen Klopp all the more impressive.

Every now and then though, the Reds need to make exceptions, and we’ve already seen an example of that this summer with a new deal for star forward Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian international will now be taking home in excess of £350k per week, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

With that mega deal in mind, as per SalarySport, Spotrac and LFC Transfer Room, we’ve taken a look at player wages throughout Klopp’s first-team squad…

Mohamed Salah – £350,000

Virgil van Dijk – £220,000

Thiago Alcantara – £200,000

Trent Alexander-Arnold – £180,000

Roberto Firmino – £180,000

Fabinho – £180,000

Andy Robertson – £160,000

James Milner – £150,000 (as of 2021/22 season)

Alisson celebrates for Liverpool

Alisson Becker – £150,000

Jordan Henderson – £140,000

Naby Keita – £120,000

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – £120,000

Joel Matip – £100,000

Darwin Nunez – £98,000

Diogo Jota – £90,385 

Luis Diaz – £90,000

Joe Gomez – £75,000

Takumi Minamino – £75,000

Nathaniel Phillips – £64,615 

Ben Davies – £60,000

Kostas Tsimikas – £60,000

Adrian – £58,000

Neco Williams – £25,000

Curtis Jones – £7,500

Caoimhin Kelleher – £6,000

As you can see, there are some surprising figures, the most shocking of which comes in the form of Curtis Jones’ wage. The midfielder apparently earns £7,500 per-week, which is significantly less than Neco Williams, on £25,000 a week, who was out on loan at Fulham last season. 

Jones’ current deal expires in June of 2025. Of course, though, before then, it would come as no surprise if an extension for a bigger salary were signed at the Merseyside club. 

But perhaps the big question for Liverpool now is how Salah’s new deal will affect wage negotiations going forward. Key players like Virgil van Dijk will likely expect similar levels of pay, feeling they have almost as much influence as Salah on the Reds’ results.

So in a few years’ time, Liverpool’s wage structure could look significantly different, with far more players exceeding the £200k mark than the mere three currently in that cohort.

Nonetheless, we’ve seen Klopp part with big names before and use the money wisely – the most obvious example being the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, before bringing in Van Dijk from Southampton.

So perhaps wages will become a factor in who leaves Anfield over the next few years, with the recent deals for Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz suggesting Klopp already has one eye firmly fixed on the future.
