Salah contract, January transfer – I dream of Liverpool off the pitch for the rest of the season

Liverpool have made a very good start to the 2023/2024 season, but there is still a lot of work to do, both on and off the pitch.

Mohamed Salah signing a new contract is just one element.Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has just one year left on his contract at Anfield at the end of this season.

It was a good start to the season for Liverpool on the pitch. Summer signings Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai have established themselves well and Ryan Gravenberch is also showing good signs of being a long-term player the Reds can rely on.

Wataru Endō has proven a little more limited so far, as expected, but he has been instrumental in adding depth to Liverpool’s midfield after losing so many players. He could be crucial to progress in the Europa League and domestic cups, which could be the Reds’ best chance of winning silverware this year.

Manchester City remain favorites to win the Premier League, as has been the norm in recent years. But the Premier League table shows, even after just eight games, that Liverpool are in the top four and just three points behind Spurs at the top.

These positions could have easily been reversed if there had not been a VAR disaster. So things are going well, but there is still a lot of work to do. Here, has looked at what needs to be fixed off the pitch at Anfield before the end of the season to ensure the Reds’ long-term success can get back on track.

Mohamed Salah contract one  way or a big decision looms for Mohamed Salah for Liverpool. At the end of the season he will have one year left on his record-breaking contract signed in 2022 and that should mean two things.

Liverpool must cash in and sell to Saudi Arabia, financing a summer of transfers that could replace him, or find a deal that sees Salah stay.

The latter would be an ideal solution, one would imagine, for both parties, with the Egyptian legend still at the height of his power and interest from the Saudi Pro League unlikely to disappear thereafter.

I found a world-class central defender and midfielderWith Joël Matip out of contract at the end of the season and Liverpool already looking a little struggling defensively despite the emergence of Jarell Quansah and the high rating of Luke Chambers, a new centre-back is certainly a priority.

Liverpool were looking for a left-sided defender in the summer, but did not find the perfect option on the transfer market. This, together with the identification of a world-class number six (essentially replacing Moisés Caicedo and Aurélien Tchouaméni), is the next priority. 

It would be wise to sign a defender in January, six months before Matip’s departure. Extension Jürgen Klopp the  Liverpool manager  has already signed to remain in charge until 2026, during the season in which he almost led the Reds to the quadruple. But could there be a new deal on the horizon?He seems to like his work at the moment, calling this year “the first year” of his new project in Liverpool.

This would make the 2025/26 season the third season of Liverpool 2.0, and abandoning a project after three seasons would seem early…New sporting director appointedJörg Schmadtke oversaw much of this summer’s transfers, while some of the work was carried out by Julian Ward before his departure.

However, in the long term, a more permanent solution at the top is needed.This week, German media outlet BILD named former RB Leipzig boss Max Eberl as an option for Liverpool alongside Bayern Munich.

On paper it seems logical, but the Bundesliga champions are also interested. It would be good to know soon exactly who will take on this role in the coming years, and Eberl is at least an interesting candidate.

End  of  Anfield  Road Completed  confirmed this week that Anfield’s latest expansion has been delayed until 2024 and that the Anfield Stand will only be partially open by then. 

This means fans are missing the games they thought they would attend.Naturally, the sooner the project can be completed and capacity restored to 100% (roughly 61,000 instead of the previous 54,000), the better.

It will be excellent when it’s finished but it looks like there’s a long way to go before that happens after the original contractor went bankrupt and work stopped, meaning it hasn’t been able to open yet.
