Liverpool didn’t make too much noise in the summer transfer market, having signed Ibrahima Konaté only. The Reds, however, were busy securing contract extensions for seven of their first-team players. Mohamed Salah could be the next player to accept a new offer from Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.

Salah’s current contract expires in the summer of 2023, and the club appears eager to keep his services beyond that deal. According to the Liverpool Echo, the star player is not asking for an exuberant sum of £500,000-a-week, as was reported at the weekend.

The Liverpool forward is a key member of Jürgen Klopp’s starting XI. Since arriving from AS Roma in 2017, he hit the ground running, scoring 32 goals in 36 league appearances in his first season.

Liverpool’s forwards have found early season form with Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah among the goals. Jota and Salah are the Reds top scorers after three Premier League games played, with the latter having a hand in two goals.

Before the international break, Chelsea looked like they were going to spoil the party at Anfield before Salah rescued a point from the penalty spot.

The Reds looked at their best when they attacked down the right-wing when Salah linked up with Trent Alexander-Arnold. On his day, few defences can deal with Salah’s pace and awareness around the 18-yard box.

Eyes will be on The Egyptian King when Leeds United hosts Liverpool on Sunday. It’s a game Salah could net his 100th Premier League goal, in 162 appearances.

The 100-goal milestone is a remarkable achievement. To put that into context, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 84 Premier League goals in 196 appearances.

Expect Liverpool to compete for domestic and European silverware this season, with the Reds’ No.11 playing a pivotal role in the club’s ambitions. It’s now down to the owners and his agent, Ramy Abbas to work out a suitable contract.
