Mohamed Salah's future at Liverpool has been plunged into fresh doubt, after a claim that the Egyptian and his agent have rejected the current contract offer on the table from the Anfield club.

Salah's current Liverpool deal is set to expire in the summer of 2023, with Liverpool eager to tie their star man down to a new deal.

Yet respected reporter Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Salah and his agent Ramy Abbas Issa, have dismissed the club’s most recent offer and no new talks have been held since December.

Liverpool may have to consider offers for Salah is a new deal cannot be agreed, with the wages package on offer from the Anfield decision makers reported to be the major sticking point in the deal.

Salah has made it clear that he would like to stay at Liverpool, but the continued delay over his contract renewal has to cast a question mark over what comes next in this story.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp gave his views on the story on Friday, as he stated his hope that Salah would stay.

“I think Mo definitely expects this club to be ambitious and we are," he said.

"It’s Mo’s decision. The club did what it can do. It is all fine. All fine from my point of view,” he said.

“Nothing has happened further, no signing, no rejection, we just have to wait. Completely fine, no rush.”
