Jamie Carragher has revealed what it would take for Liverpool to hold on to Mohamed Salah as he continues to be linked with a move away from Anfield.

Salah has been linked to Real Madrid and Barcelona, and has previously refused to rule out a switch to either. Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Jordan Henderson have all committed to new deals in recent weeks, and Liverpool legend, Carragher, believes Salah will be the next player to put pen to paper.

He told Sky Sports: "It’s not just about Jordan Henderson, it’s about the group of players who have signed long-term contracts. I think Liverpool have some of the best players in the world, with Alisson signing a six-year deal and Virgil van Djik.

"I think Mohamed Salah will be the next one to sign. In years gone by, certainly when I was at the club, if we had players of that quality, they would be going to Real Madrid or Barcelona.

"We’ve lost so many players over the years, but the club this year hasn’t spent much in the transfer market. We’ve bought [Ibrahima] Konate in for £36 million ($50m), and we’ve certainly recouped that through the sales.

"I think the money and expenditure this pre-season was going to go on new contracts, so that those players can stay at Liverpool for the rest of their careers. Jordan’s the latest one and follows Andy Robertson, Fabinho also and I expect Salah to do so."
