Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has told This Is Futbol that he expects Mohamed Salah to sign a new deal at Liverpool.
The 29-year-old forward is out of contract at the end of next season and is yet to put pen to paper on an extension.
According to the Daily Mirror, Salah wants £500,000 a week if he is to remain at Anfield.
Should Liverpool pay Salah whatever he wants?
The Liverpool Echo, however, have disputed that claim. But whatever the case, with the Egyptian currently thought to be on £200,000 a week, his next contract is still likely to be a big and stunning one. And Palmer is confident it will get sorted.
“I think they’ll get it done,” the ex-Leeds United and Southampton player exclusively said to TIF. “I think for both parties it works. I think he’s happy at Liverpool and why wouldn’t you be? He’s happy working for Jurgen Klopp.
“I just think it’s a matter of time before the financials are sorted. They’ve got very wealthy owners, so it’s not a case that they haven’t got the amount of money to keep Mo Salah happy. It’ll just be a case of them agreeing a deal that works for both parties.”
Whatever Salah is looking for, Liverpool should pay it and you would expect them to. When you look at his goal record over the last few seasons, there is no doubt that he is one of the best forwards in world football and arguably the best in the Premier League.
