Jamie Carragher has warned Liverpool’s owners they would never be forgiven were they to allow club legend Mohamed Salah to leave the club.

Egypt international Salah, whose current deal at Liverpool runs until the summer of 2023, has consistently expressed his desire to remain at Anfield amid ongoing talks over a new contract.



In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Salah claimed he was "not asking for crazy stuff" during negotiations with Liverpool which Reds boss Jurgen Klopp insists are "in a good place".



Salah, who along with Senegal's Sadio Mane is away on Africa Cup on Nations duty, was absent as Liverpool failed to overcome 10-man Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.



It was a performance Carragher felt amplified their importance to Liverpool, as well as the need to get Salah's future sorted as a matter of urgency.

Highlights from the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg between Liverpool and Arsenal.

"Those two players [Salah and Mane] are obviously a big miss and this talk of Salah's contract will probably intensify even more because when he is not there, you see the effect it has," Carragher told Sky Sports after Arsenal's 0-0 draw at Anfield.

"As a Liverpool supporter you should be wary that this [Salah's contract situation] is dragging on. Other big players at Liverpool have signed contracts in the last three or four months, the goalkeeper [Alisson Becker], Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Virgil van Dijk, huge figures in this team.

Paul Merson and Jamie Carragher admit that Liverpool are not the same side without attacking duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

"Salah wants to be paid as well as any top player in the Premier League or world football, and why shouldn't he? He deserves that, we're talking about one of the best players in the world.

"The problem, and the angle Liverpool may be looking at it from, is where Salah would go? The Spanish giants [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are really out of the equation now given the problems they have financially. Would Salah leave and ruin his legacy by going to Manchester City or Manchester United? Probably not, so that's probably Liverpool's bargaining chip.

"I would love this deal to be done as quickly as possible. You cannot forget the price Liverpool signed Salah for. It wasn't as if they went and spent £100million, they did what they are great at and did a brilliant deal. The money they have invested in him already - transfer fee and wages - has been a snip.

Jurgen Klopp admits his Liverpool side struggled in their 0-0 draw against Arsenal.

"This is not a case of giving the player exactly what he wants, but Liverpool Football Club and the owners, I don't think they would be forgiven if Salah left this club in the summer or in 18 months' time.

"He's a Liverpool legend, one of the greatest players the club has ever had, and it needs to be sorted sooner rather than later."
