It was decided at some stage during the pandemic that the club would be taking a 'retain and refresh' approach to their future as plans were put in place to keep hold of the nucleus of a squad that had lifted the Champions League and Premier League in successive summers between 2019 and 2020.

Harvey Elliott also joined that group when the teenager signed his own five-year contract 12 months ago.

But while Salah's signature perhaps marks the real end of the 'retain' part of the wider transfer strategy, plans are afoot to also tie down Naby Keita and Joe Gomez to new terms of their own in the coming weeks and months.

The only glaring omissions from the list of Liverpool players they wanted nailing down were Salah and Sadio Mane, who chose to seek pastures new earlier this month at Bayern Munich after a glittering six years on Merseyside.
