Jurgen Klopp is without Mohamed Salah at the moment, with the Liverpool talisman currently representing his national team at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

"Things take time," said the German, but if he does eventually renew his deal, the Premier League's top scorer could spend the majority of his next Liverpool contract as a striker rather than a wide forward.

With Roberto Firmino's contract set to expire at the end of next season, Salah could inherit his place in the centre of the park, which would allow Liverpool sign a new wide forward to replace the Brazilian rather than a new striker.

Egypt played their first match of the tournament on Tuesday afternoon, losing 1-0 to Nigeria who rank amongst the favourites to win the competition, with Salah occupying a new role.

Based on Salah's minutes as a starter for Liverpool in the Premier League, he's averaged a goal or an assist roughly every 105 minutes as a wide forward on the right, compared to one every 77 minutes when used through the middle.

Salah failed to find the net against Nigeria but regardless of his muted performance, the tactical switch could offer an insight into his future usage at Anfield, especially considering he's now 29 years-old.
