Star forward Mohamed Salah’s contract at Liverpool runs out in little over 18 months, with talks between the player and club currently underway to extend the deal
Liverpool fans are desperate to see Mohamed Salah commit his future to the club and sign a new contract.
The Reds forward has been in scintillating form so far this term but with his contract up at the end of next season, many are nervous it could prove to be Salah’s last few months at Anfield.
The club are deep into negotiations with the Egypt international and Jurgen Klopp has now lifted the lid on how those talks are going.
It could be departing sporting director Michael Edwards’ final big deal for the club after he announced he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
And the other transfer targets he may be leaving for his successor Julian Ward have come to light.
Edwards has had a very successful, if very busy, career on Anfield – as shown by the first XI in Jurgen Klopp’s first game six years ago.
Here are Mirror Football’s latest Liverpool headlines.

Just two players who started Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge at Liverpool are still at the club.
Inside Salah’s contract talks
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has lifted the lid on how the club is handling contract talks with star forward Mohamed Salah.
Salah has netted a very impressive 19 goals in just 20 games this season, with fans desperate to see him extend his stay at the club.
But despite the fact the Reds acs could potentially leave for nothing in little over 18 months time, Klopp has branded the negotiations as ‘normal’ and insisted he is ‘fine’ with how they are going.
Transfer shortlist emerges
Michael Edwards will certainly depart Liverpool with the club in a far better position than he found them in when he steps down as sporting director at the end of the season.
And many Edwards signings were central figures in those successes, having brought the likes of Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and many more to the club.
But he’ll also be leaving a shortlist of targets for his successor Julian Ward to ensure continued success for the Reds.
