However, with 30 goals in 36 games this season, Salah has lit up Anfield and significantly softened the blow of losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142 million.

Jurgen Klopp says it is "not a secret" that Liverpool want to secure Sadio Mane's future.

Liverpool haven't won a trophy since 2012 and this season their hopes of silverware rest on winning the Champions League, where they are nearly certain to reach the last-eight due to their 5-0 first leg lead over Porto.

When asked if Salah had the best left foot in football Klopp said: "Hopefully".

"But, do we want to keep the players together?"

Mane has proven his worth following a £30million switch from Southampton in 2016, and the 25-year-old is expected to net a double-your-money deal.

'I came to here to win titles, ' Salah told BBC Football Focus.

"I really want to use this base and for that we have to be at our best tomorrow".

Klopp said: "It was a long time".

Klopp said: "I am really happy we didn't have to play immediately after the Porto game, because it would have been quite hard from this big result and a good game from our side".
