‘It’s in their hands’

Salah has scored a staggering 23 goals in just 26 appearances, while he’s recorded a further nine assists.

The Egypt international, who is currently at the African Cup of Nations, sees his contract expire at Anfield in the summer of 2023.

Liverpool have been locked in talks with Salah- who has won the Champions League, Premier League and Club World Cup since arriving on Merseyside in the summer of 207 - about extending his stay.

Things still remain at an impasse - but Salah reiterated his desrire to remain with the Reds.

Speaking to GQ’s first global sports issue, which is available on January 25, Salah said: “I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands.

“They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff.

“When you ask for something and they show you they can give you something (they should) because they appreciate what you did for the club.

“I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well. I love the fans. The fans love me.

“But with the administration, they have (been) told the situation. It’s in their hands.”

Will Mo Salah leave or stay at Liverpool?

Given Salah’s exploits, he will be want a contract that recognises and rewards his achievements.

It’s previously been claimed that the former Chelsea forward is demanding £500,000 per week.

That seems a bit excessive but Salah will no doubt want to be the top earner at Anfield.

Virgil van Dijk reportedly earns £220,000 after commiting his future last summer and that places him top of the wage bill.

Salah won’t be short of potential suitors who could offer him what he wants. The likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all previously been linked.
