Liverpool transfer round-up: Mane demands Salah-style contract offer as Chelsea deal eyed

The Senegal international is thought to be demanding the kind of huge figures his superstar teammate is after to ensure he commits his long-term future to Liverpool

Liverpool bounced back from their first defeat of the season in emphatic style as they battered Arsenal 4-0 at home on Saturday evening.

A loss away at West Ham prior to the recent international break ended Jurgen Klopp’s hopes of going a full campaign without defeat, but the victory over the Gunners was the perfect response.

The Reds forked out just £36m over the course of the entire January transfer window on the one signing – ex-RB Leipzig central defender Ibrahima Konate.

It remains to be seen whether Klopp will look to bolster the options he currently has at his disposal during the January transfer window, but Liverpool have been linked with a number of stars as the period for new additions creeps closer.

With that being said, here is Mirror Sport’s Liverpool transfer round-up for Monday, November 22.

Mane after Salah-style contract

It was an eventful evening against Arsenal for Sadio Mane, who both opened the scoring and sparked a touchline row between Klopp and Arteta during the latter stages of the first half.

The 29-year-old has enjoyed a stellar start to the season, notching seven league goals in 12 games – though has arguably had his thunder stolen by the heroics of his teammate Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian has outscored him, yet Mane is demanding similar figures to the ones Salah is asking the Reds hierarchy for, according to Goal.

Given it would be nothing short of catastrophic if either, or both, were allowed to walk for a cut-price fee, there is every chance Mane’s demands will at the very least be considered by the Liverpool board.

However, given the terms of Salah’s new deal are still being mulled over, Mane could be waiting a while before his own wishes are given the green light.
