Jurgen Klopp remains relaxed over Mohamed Salah’s contract situation, with his current deal set to expire in eighteen months’ time. However, the German boss has conceded talks may drag on for his star man.

Salah, 29, has 19 goals and nine assists in all competitions for the Reds this season, registering a goal contribution every 62 minutes.

With Liverpool currently just one point behind Manchester City in the title race and having won all five of their Champions League group stage fixtures, Salah has had a huge say in proceedings with his excellence.

Clubs have been linked with the Egyptian legend for years on end after his continued domination at the Anfield club, although nothing has come to fruition.

Klopp has made it clear he wants the player to stay as has Salah, who admitted over the weekend he’s already made the decision to remain at Anfield if the club can meet his demands.

The Liverpool boss insisted on Monday that he is not concerned about talks with Salah dragging on as he explained the complexity of reaching an agreement with his star man.

“You know what he is about,” Klopp said.

“We’re talking and extending a contract with a player, like if not something you where you meet for a cuppa and sort it. That’s normal.

“I can only say a few things but I’m not sure if it’s translated [wrongly] and it’s an issue.
