Key duo set to be offered new deals


Liverpool are set to offer new contracts to Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

The attacking duo will both be given the opportunity to extend their current deals and will be offered pay increases in order to secure them for the best years of their careers.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has made the duo pivotal elements of his attacking system and does not want to see either leave the club any time soon and is fully behind the move.

The offers will be put in front of the duo shortly and they could each be afforded time to think about the terms due to the complication of the World Cup this Summer.

Salah currently gets paid around £90,000 a week through the contract he signed last Summer when he joined from Italian club AS Roma in a deal worth around £35m.

The Egypt international has four years left on his contract and there is no release clause inserted in the deal, which will come as a disappointment to the clubs interested in signing him.

Firmino, meanwhile, is on a reported weekly wage of around £100,000 and has just over two years left on the contract he signed when he arrived from German club Hoffenheim back in the Summer of 2015.

The Brazilian is reported to have a clause in his deal, however, which is rumoured to be worth around £83m – which could encourage the likes of Bayern Munich to firm up interest this Summer.

Liverpool want to reward their star players for their form and the impact they have made since joining the club and supporters will be behind the move as well.
