Mohamed Salah has provided a fresh update on his contract situation at Liverpool and it may well indicate what the Reds are hoping to do in the summer transfer window. Liverpool have endured a torrid defence of their Premier League title this campaign and face a tough ask to even finish inside the top four before the end of the season.
Injuries have plagued Jurgen Klopp’s squad all season long, particularly in defence while he’s been unable to field last year’s preferred midfield trio of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho.
There have been no such issues up front though with the usual three of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino regularly being available.
Mane and Firmino though have been below-par with Diogo Jota impressing since his summer move from Wolves.
Salah though has enjoyed another strong season in front of goal as one of the only real highlights in Liverpool’s campaign so far.

He’s scored 29 goals in all competitions and is in with a chance of winning another Premier League Golden Boot with five games remaining.
And his performances in front of goal this season have once again raised questions over his future at Anfield.
Real Madrid continue to be linked with a move for the Egypt international and Salah even spoke up a possible switch to Spain back in December.
Reports indicated at the time that Salah’s comments were merely a ploy to spark contract negotiations at Liverpool to get new and improved terms.
But Salah has now confirmed that no talks are currently taking place with just a few weeks until the transfer window opens.
“No one is talking to me about that, so I can’t say much about that,” he told Sky Sports.
“No one in the club is talking to me about anything so I do not know.”
Salah went on to make it clear that he does want to stay and help push Liverpool back up to the top of the table.
“I said before that I want to win the Premier League again, I want to win the Champions League again,” he added.
“It’s a great thing to win, I’m just trying to win it again and again. Part of our job is to win trophies.”
But Liverpool’s apparent reluctance to start negotiations on a new deal for their prized forward may well indicate that they’re keeping their options open heading into the summer.
There have been persistent rumours linking Liverpool with a big-money move for a forward player like Jadon Sancho or Kylian Mbappe.
For that to happen though, Liverpool will almost certainly have to sell one of their star players in order to fund a move.
Salah still has two years left on his contract but in 2022 he would likely be available for far cheaper as he will be 30 years of age at that point.
