Liverpool are set to hold “crunch talks” with Mohamed Salah about his future in the coming days, according to a key update regarding his next step.

The 31-year-old has been an astonishing signing for the Reds ever since he arrived from Roma in the summer of 2017, scoring on his debut at Watford and never looking back from that point.

Since then, Salah has gone on to score 211 goals in 348 appearances, becoming one of the greatest players in Liverpool’s history, winning many trophies along the way.

The Egyptian ace has struggled to find top form at times this season, and having seen a £150m bid rejected from Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad, further interest in him could emerge at the end of this season.

Salah is out of contract at Anfield in the summer of 2025, however, so a big decision needs to be made, in terms of extending his stay or allowing him to leave before he exits on a free transfer.

According to a new update from Football Insider, Liverpool will undergo talks with their attacking superstar very soon, in order to solve his future:

“Liverpool are set to hold crunch talks over the future of Mohamed Salah at Anfield in the coming days, sources have told Football Insider.

“Salah, who turns 32 next month, has just one year remaining on his current contract and the Merseysiders and the Egyptian superstar will make a joint decision on his future following the end of the season. The talks will surround his immediate future and whether he will remain with the Merseyside club for the duration of his deal.”

Our thoughts on Salah’s Liverpool future…

Admittedly, Salah’s recent form has been way below what supporters have become accustomed to, with his all-round performances ineffective and even the goals drying up.

Only two have come his way in his last eight appearances, and just one of those was from open play, at home to Tottenham earlier this month.

Despite this, Liverpool should still be looking to tie Salah down to a new deal, with the attacker still having so much to offer for the next two or three years.

Losing him for an earth-shattering amount of money would have its merits, in terms of generating more funds for transfers, but replacing him could be incredibly difficult, given his relentless end product when he is playing well.
