Former professional footballer Nigel Jemson says Liverpool fans will be praying that Mohamed Salah signs a new deal with the club.
The 29-year-old has until June 2023 to run on his current contract at Anfield and has been in brilliant form for the Reds, recently taking his Premier League goal tally to 100 goals after scoring against Brentford and has since added to that tally.
Is Mo Salah the best player in the world currently?
Jemson says that Liverpool fans will be hoping that FSG can tie Salah down to a new deal, telling This is Futbol: “Yes I’m sure Liverpool want to tie him down and they know they need to tie him down. He’s got one year left after this, so you can’t let someone like that walk away cheaply.
“I’m sure Mo Salah wants to stay at the football club. It’s a club obviously in a great position, great manager, great players that can only go and get better, so I’ve got every faith in Liverpool knowing what they want to do.
“But they’ll have a wage structure that they want to pay him. I don’t think any individual can tell a club to give them whatever they want, so it’ll be interesting going forward to see what does happen. But I’m sure all Liverpool fans will be praying that he does stay and confident that the club can sort it out sooner rather than later.”
The Liverpool supporters may get their wish as Football Insider has reported that the club are preparing to make Salah their top earner by offering him a huge £82million offer and want to reach an agreement before the January transfer window opens.
Salah, who scored a stunning goal in the 5-0 win against Watford on Saturday, has come in for high praise recently with Liverpool legend Ian Rush telling the Daily Mail: “Mo Salah at the moment is the best player in the world, he has taken it to a different level. He has been absolutely fantastic this season.”
