Arsene Wenger sends Jurgen Klopp words of advice over Salah's contract


Arsene Wenger has explained why he would give Mohamed Salah a new contract at Liverpool

Salah has once again starred for the Reds this season with 28 goals in all competitions, including 20 in the Premier League.

But reports in recent days have suggested the Egyptian and his representatives have rejected fresh terms from Liverpool.

Salah's current deal expires in 2023 and there have various suggestions of how big a pay rise he wants after five incredible years at Anfield, although negotiations have been private between the Egyptian and the club on that front.

Speaking about the situation, Wenger outlined the considerations that must be taken before handing out new contracts.

And when referring specifically to Salah, the former Arsenal boss compared the Liverpool forward to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

"£400,000-a-week? Look, every situation is different and separate,” Wenger told beIN Sports.

"You have to look at the medical record of the player. Never misses a game. You would do it.

"It depends as well on the physical qualities. If he's quick, very quick, and he loses a bit, then he is still quick.

"If he's already limited and slow, then you wouldn't do it.

"Mo Salah, you would do it. He is a mixture of Ronaldo and Messi. He can run with the ball and give the final ball. I think he has improved a lot in giving the final ball.

"From August up until the Africa Cup of Nations, he was certainly the best player in the world.

"I have seen him score goals this season that are exceptional. On his own as well.

"Salah and (Sadio) Mane, you wouldn't want to lose them because they become stars with Liverpool. Part of their history now."
