Liverpool’s focus is firmly on securing the futures of Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold. With all three players’ contracts expiring in 2025, the Reds are keen to avoid the risk of losing them for nothing.


Liverpool is facing a hectic summer as Jürgen Klopp gets ready to depart from Anfield. While several players are out of contract, there are three crucial deals that need to be sorted, and the Reds have made it clear that these are their top priority.


Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who have been instrumental in Klopp’s successful nine-year reign at Merseyside, are all set to become free agents in 2025. It is highly probable that they will also feature prominently in Arne Slot’s plans, as he is expected to take over from the departing German manager.


It appears to be a straightforward decision to secure a new deal for Alexander-Arnold, but there are important choices to be made regarding his two teammates. Van Dijk and Salah have consistently performed at a high level, but their ages of 33 and 32 respectively this summer raise some considerations.


There has been much speculation surrounding Salah’s future, with Saudi Pro League clubs showing interest that could potentially reignite. However, as things currently stand, Liverpool is actively planning for the upcoming season with the Egyptian forward in their ranks.


According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Liverpool is expected to intensify discussions with the trio and has intentions to retain all three players. However, it is mentioned that the club’s ‘preference’ would be for none of Van Dijk, Salah, and Alexander-Arnold to enter the final year of their contracts.


If agreements cannot be reached, it is possible that Liverpool may face inevitable consequences, including the risk of foreign clubs making moves for their players as early as January. One club that has been linked with England international Alexander-Arnold is Real Madrid.


The responsibility of making contract decisions will rest with new sporting director Richard Hughes, as well as his predecessor Michael Edwards, while Slot will assume the role of head coach.


Although Slot may have some influence in transfer dealings, he will not have the same level of control that Klopp has had in recent years.


According to, it is wise for Liverpool to prioritize sorting out the futures of these three players for the upcoming season.


Allowing any player to enter the final 12 months of their contract poses a risk and leaves the club vulnerable to receiving low bids and potential approaches in the January transfer window.


It is expected that new contract offers will be presented once the summer transfer window begins, but it remains uncertain whether agreements will be reached.
