Salah who arrived the Merseyside from Italian side AS Roma last June on a five-year contract in a deal worth $49 million, helped the Reds finish fourth in the Premier League and reach the Champions League in his first season at the club.

The 26-year-old scored 44 goals in 52 appearances for the Reds as he became the first player in history to win three Premier League Player of the Month accolades in a season in March.

Salah was also named as both the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year for his stellar efforts in 2017-18.

Salah’s heroics in helping Egypt qualify for the World Cup also earned him the African Footballer of the Year trophy and the BBC’s African Player of the Year trophy.

“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,” Merseyside manager Jurgen Klopp said.

“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,” Klopp added.
