Liverpool will offer Mohamed Salah an improved new contract to fend off interest in his services, according to a reliable journalist.
Bleacher Report correspondent Dean Jones claimed on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning that the prolific forward is to get a more lucrative contract from the Merseyside giants and there is “no way” he will be sold in the summer window.
Mo Salah will be rewarded with an improved deal at Liverpool—no way he leaves just yet. Can he ever repeat this season’s form though?

Salah lifted his goal tally in a remarkable debut season for the Merseysiders to 36 after scoring four times in his side’s 5-0 demolition of Watford on Saturday.
The Egyptian is the leading scorer in all competitions not only in England but in the five major leagues in Europe as he continues to annihilate long-standing records at Liverpool and beyond.
This has prompted speculation that Europe’s richest and most glamorous clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, will table enormous bids for Salah in the forthcoming window.
Football Insider verdict:
Salah’s extraordinary debut season at Liverpool has elevated him into the world’s top 10, a sensational achievement for a player who couldn’t get in the Chelsea team a few years ago. As inevitable as night follows day, his exploits have prompted a stampede of speculation about the mega clubs willing to fork out world-record fees to prise him from Anfield this summer. Confirmation from a reliable journalist that Salah will not go the way of Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho – at least, not yet – will be a relief to not only the Liverpool faithful, but those who want to see the world’s best lighting up the Premier League. Liverpool’s best hope of hanging on to the Egyptian during his peak years is continued success, both domestically and in Europe. If Salah’s ambitions can be satisfied at Liverpool – a place in the Champions League quarter-finals is a decent start – during a new golden era under Jurgen Klopp, then he won’t be going anywhere.
