Jadon Sancho can help Liverpool conclude next major transfer following Mohamed Salah new contract signing confirmation

Liverpool have already acquired the biggest signing they could have hoped for this summer in Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah, but what happens next is a huge part of why the 30-year-old has signed a three-year contract.

Committing about £55m in salary for Salah, should he see out the deal, is a substantial investment — albeit a more than justified one for a player of his calibre — but the money will also be invested well elsewhere.

With the Salah drama ended (at least for another year, by which time speculation of another contract will have appeared), Liverpool’s focus will soon shift to other matters.

There are still contracts ending in 2023 that must be resolved — though what appeared to be the most problematic of those has now been boxed off unexpectedly — but transfers will also be significant.

With Salah signed, Liverpool’s displays of ambition will continue, which means looking ahead to the long term, as those behind the scenes at Anfield always do.

Next summer, the priority will be in midfield (albeit another forward may be needed depending on Liverpool’s hierarchy’s decision on Roberto Firmino), with Jude Bellingham the top candidate for many.

Jude Bellingham is Liverpool’s next summer top midfield priority

Concerns have been voiced about the possibility of his price increasing between now and then, with the World Cup being a legitimate source of concern.

Despite the fact that Borussia Dortmund appears to wish to maintain its best asset for another year after selling Erling Haaland to Manchester City, there are other grounds to assume that there should be no such concern.

According to reports this week, the Bundesliga club wants €120 million (£103 million) for the 18-year-old midfielder, but similar reports surfaced surrounding Jadon Sancho throughout the two summers (and more) that Manchester United pursued the winger.

Manchester United paid a cost of £72 million for Sancho, and it can only help Liverpool’s claim that he has failed to spark since returning to the Premier League, despite showing plenty of promise in Germany.

Sancho would almost probably have looked a lot better player had he went to Liverpool last summer rather than the fractured Old Trafford side, but his price tag and influence subsequently can be a useful negotiating weapon.

Liverpool may believe that Bellingham is the player they want to sign the most, but investing a nine-figure sum on him should be avoided in theory.

With Salah extending, this is only the beginning of a long and ongoing evolution process. One large project has been completed, and now work will begin on the next.
