Michael Edwards set to prioritise contract renewals for Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool have brought Michael Edwards back to the club, and he will look to sort out the future of key players in the coming weeks.

A report from Give Me Sport has claimed that Michael Edwards will prioritise contract talks with players like Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold this summer.

All three players have been exceptional for Liverpool in recent seasons, and they have helped the club win major trophies. They are nearing the end of their current contracts, which net them a combined £750,000-a-week wages. So, it is no surprise that Liverpool are looking to secure their long-term futures.

Virgil van Dijk has been one of the best defenders in the league this season, and Liverpool must look to hold on to him at all costs. Apart from his qualities as a footballer, he is the captain of the club as well, and his leadership qualities have been invaluable.

Meanwhile, Salah has scored goals consistently and created chances for his teammates in every season since arriving at Liverpool. His incredible consistency and fitness records suggest that he will operate at a world class level in the coming seasons as well. Liverpool must do everything in their power to keep him at the club for as long as possible.

He has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia and it remains to be seen how the situation develops. Meanwhile, Trent Alexander Arnold is undoubtedly the best right-back in the Premier League right now, and he is a world class player for Liverpool.

His influence on the pitch stems far beyond his defensive contributions and he is a key part of Liverpool’s playing style. The England international has been linked with clubs like Real Madrid, and it remains to be seen whether the Premier League side can convince him to commit his long term future to the club.

Liverpool will lose Jurgen Klopp in summer

Liverpool will already be without their charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp next season, and they cannot afford to lose key players as well. It will be interesting to see if the Reds can replace their world class manager adequately. The players will certainly wait for the club to show their ambition after Klopp’s exit before committing their features to the club.
