Mohamed Salah (2/7 Premier League Top Goalscorer) insists he is not asking for “crazy stuff” as negotiations over a new Liverpool contract continue.
The Egyptian forward has been in spellbinding form for the Reds this season as they seek to try and reclaim their Premier League crown (Liverpool 10/1 Premier League Outright).
They are currently 11 points off top spot after a run of three Premier League matches without a win.
However, Salah has been in imperious form this season and is the Premier League’s top goalscorer with 16 goals in 20 top flight matches.
He has won the Golden Boot twice since joining Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017 and this season has seen him reach the 100-goal milestone in a red shirt.
Salah, who turns 30 in June, has 18 months left on his current deal and has previously indicated he would like to sign a new one.
However, he says the ball is in Liverpool’s court regarding the negotiations.
“I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands. I’m not asking for crazy stuff,” Salah told GQ.
“The thing is, when you ask for something and they show you they can give you something, [they should] because they appreciate what you did for the club.
“I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well. I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands.”
Salah is currently away on African Cup of Nations duty with Egypt (8/1 Outright) and may not be seen again in a Liverpool shirt until next month.
