Liverpool have allegedly started talks with Mo Salah to make him the best-paid player in their history.
The Egyptian superstar, who currently pockets £200,000-a-week, is allegedly in negotiations over a new four-year contract.
Salah, 29, is under contract until 2023 but the Reds want him to commit his future to them for a further two years.
That is according to The Athletic, who state it will be a record-breaking deal for the Merseyside club.
Virgil van Dijk is currently the Reds highest-earner on around £220,000-a-week deal.
But Liverpool’s sporting director Michael Edwards is currently on a contract extension spree.
He has already sealed extensions for the defender, Alisson Becker and Trent Alexander-Arnold this summer.
Salah has become the talisman for the club since his arrival in 2017 and has helped fire them to both Champions League and Premier League glory.
He has scored 126 goals and produced 49 assists in his 204 appearances for them.
The former Roma and Chelsea attacker has also begun the current campaign in impressive form.
He set up two and helped himself to a goal in Liverpool’s opening day 3-0 win at Norwich.
Salah has long been linked with a move away from Liverpool in recent years.
And back in December he refused to rule out a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid later in his career.
