Salah joined Liverpool last summer from Italian club AS Roma. Salah was the league's top-scorer, scoring 32 goals in the English Premier League last season. Salah featured in 52 matches for Liverpool scoring 44 goals. The 26-year-old forward won the Golden Boot award for finishing the season as top scorer as well as the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award. Salah reached to the final of last season's UEFA Champions League but lost to Real Madrid.

After signing the contract, Salah said, "I'm very happy to say I have signed a new contract with the club". The Egyptian also said, "My first year at the club was an incredible experience for me and my family. I have to thank everyone at Liverpool and also you, our supporters. I know we can achieve a lot of things together".

Liverpool's manager Jürgen Klopp said, "This news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season [...] When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think."
