Mohamed Salah responds to Arne Slot appointment with clearest Liverpool transfer hint yet

Mohamed Salah is planning on staying at Liverpool this summer

Mohamed Salah has suggested he will remain at Liverpool this summer in a trophy pledge to supporters. Salah, like Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold, is out of contract at the end of next season.

He is likely to be targeted by Saudi Pro League clubs when the transfer window opens with Liverpool eager to avoid the risk of losing him for nothing in a year's time.

The Egyptian has not looked himself since returning from injury and will turn 32 this summer but The Athletic reported that new boss Arne Slot is planning for next season with him.

Salah took to social media shortly after Slot was confirmed as Jürgen Klopp's successor and indicated he will be sticking around for some time yet. He wrote: "We know that trophies are what count and we will do everything possible to make that happen next season. Our fans deserve it and we will fight like hell."

His post comes amid reports Slot wants to build his team around Salah and three of his teammates. It is claimed by The Telegraph that the Dutchman sees the forward as 'fundamental' to his plans, alongside Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold and Darwin Núñez.

Salah had earlier posted a tribute to Klopp, having been signed by the outgoing boss back in 2017. The pair were involved in a touchline row at West Ham last month but the Liverpool ace has dismissed any suggestion of a rift.

"It was great sharing all those trophies and experiences with you over the past 7 years. I wish you the best of luck for the future and hope we meet again," he said. says: There is no doubt that Slot will want to keep Salah and it appears that the Egyptian is planning on sticking around too. You would expect Liverpool to offer him a new deal, rather than let him enter the final year of his contract. He has not been at his best since injury but he can use pre-season to make sure he is fit and firing, and ready to go in August.
