8″It’s a no brainer” – Frank McAvennie urges Liverpool to Agree to ‘best in the world’ star player’s contract demands

The red’s standoff with star forward Mohamed Salah continues over the contract renewal.

Both parties have reportedly failed to reach a breakthrough in contract negotiations over the last couple of months, with the club reluctant to meet the forward’s financial demands.

Former EPL and West Ham striker Frank McAvennie has urged the Reds to oblige to the Egyptian’s requests.

The Egyptian international has just returned to Liverpool training this week after representing his nation at the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), where they finished as runners-up to champions Senegal.

McAvennie strongly believes the forward wouldn’t have spoken to the club over his contract renewal during that period as he was so focused on the AFCON tournament.

“How is this not sorted yet?” McAvennie told Football Insider while discussing the Egyptian’s contractual situation at Anfield.

“I expect they haven’t been talking while he’s been away with Egypt. He was fully focused on the AFCON and he will be gutted that he didn’t win that.”

With both parties having reunited following the end of the AFCON tournament, McAvennie feels it is time they get back on the negotiating table.

He also urged Liverpool to accommodate Salah’s wishes, who he lauded as “the best player in the world.”

“There is nothing in the way of these talks now so Liverpool will want him back at the negotiating table as soon as possible,” the Scotsman was quoted as saying.

“He said he’s not asking for anything crazy, the whole thing is getting ridiculous now.

Mohamed Salah says he is “not asking for crazy stuff” in contract talks, as he reiterated that it is up to the reds to decide his future.
