It seems like Salah and his agent won't be budgining on their request, leaving it in the hands of the owners and senior club members.

Speaking about the current situation, Cameroon and Chelsea star Geremi thinks that the club shouldn't even be thinking about not renewing Salah's contract.

Do you think Liverpool's hierarchy are making a big mistake not giving Mohamed Salah the contract he is asking for?

"I think as a club you have to keep your best player," said Geremi. 

"You have to keep them because those big players will go to a big club who want to sign them.

"So for me, [if I was the] boss of one club, my best player, I would always protect their contract to keep them.

"There is a lot of advantages, first of all they play for you and they play well.

"And also, when you go to sign some other big players, they will be happy to join other big players. 

"So there are a lot of advantages to keeping big players at your clubs."
