Players at Liverpool are expected to be offered ‘lucrative’ contract extensions.
Alisson, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andrew Robertson are the players in question.
New contracts for these players would assure their long-term future at Anfield.
Fabinho’s, Van Dijk’s, Salah’s, and Mane’s current contracts are set to expire in 2023. Trent, Alisson, and Robbo’s contracts expire in 2024.
Roberto Firmino, who, like the other players named, is only under contract until 2023, has been key to Liverpool’s success under Klopp, despite his place in the squad being threatened by Diogo Jota last season.
Meanwhile, Alexander-Arnold called his new contract a “no-brainer.”
He told Liverpool’s official website, “I’m honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be handed an extension, so it was a no-brainer for me.”
“Given the state of the club and my current position in my career, it’s always a good option for me. Extending my stay and ensuring that I am here for longer is always a positive thing. I’m all dressed up.
Alexander-teammate Arnold’s Andrew Robertson, as well as Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane, are all said to be in line for new contracts at Anfield, according to the source.
On the other hand, talks over a new contract with captain Jordan Henderson are said to have reached a snag, despite the fact that the 31-year-chances old’s of departing this summer being limited.
