Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is optimistic forward Mohamed Salah will sign a new contract at the club.
The Egypt international is enjoying a superb season and is the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goals.
Salah, 29, joined the Reds in 2017 and his current deal expires in 18 months.
“We’re talking – and extending the contract for a player like Mo is not one where you meet for a cup of tea and find an agreement in the afternoon,” said Klopp.
He added: “Mo is fine, I’m fine. What we all want is clear. Things like this take time.

Liverpool face AC Milan in their final Champions League group game today, with Klopp’s side having already qualified for the knockout stage.
There were some low tier rumours that Xavi is interested in signing Salah upon his contract ending in 2023, and the forward responded to the rumours by saying he was only interested in staying in the Premier League at this point in his career.
“I read what was said about Xavi’s interest to sign me,” he said. “This is something that makes me happy that a team like Barcelona is interested in me, but I’m happy in Liverpool and we will see what happens in the future.
“At the moment, I prefer to stay in the Premier League as it’s the strongest league in the world.”
