Salah is currently being discussed as a candidate to become the best player in the world, so his form has been good to start the season.

TEAMTalk’s report adds that suggestions that Salah is putting off £500,000 a week are inaccurate as he understands the financial parameters of owners Fenway Sports Group.
Any new deal would see Salah become the highest paid player in the club’s history, eclipsing Vigil Van Dijk’s new £220,000-a-week contract.

Liverpool’s focus in recent months has been on securing the future of players who have been a foundation for their success both at home and in Europe.
Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold was the first to strike a new deal by signing a four-year extension at the end of July, and the England right-back’s commitment was quickly followed days later by a contract for Brazilian midfielder Fabinho.
Goalkeeper Alisson also signed a new contract in the first week of July, while Van Dijk also signed on the dotted line.
There was also a new contract for Harvey Elliott, who broke through to the Liverpool first team at the start of this season before suffering a nasty ankle fracture and dislocation against Leeds.
Scottish defender Andy Robertson also signed new terms until 2026 and now Salah is the priority.
