The Egyptian star has agreed to a new three-year deal at Anfield.

Liverpool have confirmed they have tied down Mohamed Salah to a new three-year deal at the club.

The agreement comes after months of uncertainty about the future of the Liverpool star. Salah’s former contract was going to expire next summer, but Liverpool have now confirmed the striker’s new deal runs until 2025.

“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone,” Salah told Liverpool’s official website.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”

Since joining the Reds from Roma in June 2017, Salah has developed into one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

Last season, the Egypt international won his fourth Golden Boot while also claiming the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Player of the Year accolades.

Following a long-running contract standoff, it seems the Reds have agreed to Salah’s wage demands.

According to the Mirror, the 30-year-old will earn £350,000 a week, which makes him the highest-earning player in Liverpool’s history.
