Mohamed Salah is flying right now having scored eight goals in as many games in all competitions including two in the club’s demolition of Porto.
His manager Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with the form he is showing, but might be concerned that he hasn’t signed a new deal as talkSPORT are told the Egyptian is ‘definitely worth’ what he’s demanding.
With less than two years left on his current deal, Salah and the club remained locked in negotiations over a new deal.
Given he has been the Reds’ top scorer for the last two seasons, it can be understood why he is reportedly commanding £500,000-a-week.
In order to secure his services, the club may have to rip up their wage structure to secure, according to QPR striker Charlie Austin.
“His numbers are ridiculous aren’t they? Year in year out,” Austin told talkSPORT.
“Week in week out, you just expect him to score every time he puts the Liverpool shirt on.
“He will be paid what he deserves I guess, that’s the way Liverpool go, they certainly won’t let him go anywhere.
“Strikers are worth their weight in gold.
“I just think he’s unbelievable for Liverpool and he would get in any team in the world, I do believe that.
“He’s ridiculous, he’s [got] everything, pace, power, finishing, defensively he’s very good, he can press all over the pitch, he sets the press for Liverpool.”
Salah’s ability in front of is unquestionable and is the best player in the Premier League right now ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne, Austin claims.
“I’m going to go with Mo Salah is the best player in the Premier League right now.”
