The forward, who arrived on Merseyside a year ago from AS Roma, has seen his stock rise astronomically over the course of the past 12 months, having fired 44 goals in just 52 appearances for the Reds.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal at Anfield, with his new deal said to have no release clause.

On Monday morning, manager Jurgen Klopp revealed how delighted he was with the news, saying it spoke volumes about Salah's commitment to the club.

"I think this news can be seen for what it is, rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season," Klopp said, according to the Liverpool's official website.

"It demonstrates two things very clearly also – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.

"We want world-class talent to see they have a home at Anfield where they can fulfil all their professional dreams and ambitions – we are working hard together to achieve this.

"When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.

"Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.

"The critical thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it. He recognises his teammates, and this club helped him achieve individual success last season. He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special.

"Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think. Last season was special with many special moments – but we want more.

"We want to be more successful and achieve more together – as the supporters sang so loudly, 'we are never gonna stop'. This has to be the attitude individually and collectively."
