Mohamed Salah is reportedly demanding a £500,000-a-week contract in order to commit his future to Liverpool.

A slew of stars have already signed long-term contracts this summer, including Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Jordan Henderson, and Jurgen Klopp confirmed the club are in talks with Salah over a new deal.

The 29-year-old is currently one of the highest earners at the club, and a new deal would make him the best paid player in the club's history, according to the Daily Mirror. Virgil van Dijk is currently the club's top earner on a £220,000-a-week contract.

Speaking about Salah's contract discussions, Klopp said: "Mo is obviously in a really, really good moment football-wise, mood-wise. How he behaves from the first day he came back has been absolutely great.

"So we're all adults, we're all professionals. There are talks and there are more talks and when there is a final decision, we will tell you. Until then, it is only important how the parties work together in these things."

Speaking earlier this week, Jamie Carragher revealed what it would take for Liverpool to hold on to 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.

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."
