The Egyptian winger, who had a record-breaking debut season with the Merseyside club, signed a new contract until 2023 this week.

The Egypt worldwide netted 10 times in the Champions League to help Liverpool FC reach the European showpiece in Kiev.

Egyptian worldwide Mohamed Salah's stunning first season with English Premier League side Liverpool earned him a long-term contract with the club on Monday.

However, all those plans will now have been blown away as Salah has reaffirmed his wish to continue playing for Liverpool by signing a new five-year deal, which happens to have no release clause in it.

"My first year at the club was an incredible experience for me and my family".

Lyon midfielder Aouar enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2017-18, scoring seven goals across 44 appearances in all competitions to prompt speculation linking him with Liverpool and Barcelona. I have to thank everyone at Liverpool and also the supporters.

"I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season", manager Jurgen Klopp told the club's website.

"When someone like Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think".

"I know we can achieve a lot of things together.", he concluded.

Salah was handed a five-year contract extension by Liverpool running till 2023 and earning him a astounding £200,000-a-week which nearly double of what he earned last season.

However, Salah suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first half of their 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid.

But negotiations are understood to have resumed in recent days in the hope the 24-year-old can become a Liverpool player once he has returned from the World Cup in Russian Federation.
