However, the 29-year-old was unhappy with the terms. Therefore, no agreement has been reached between Salah and Liverpool.
With that being the case, Elliott said that he is doing everything he can to ensure that his teammate extends his stay at Anfield.
"And I think the fans have as well. He’s been a great asset to this club, he’s got us to so many finals by scoring winning goals, important goals.
“He’s a great person to learn off and I’ve tried to get really close to him for the small details so I can be up there with him one day.
“It’s going to be very hard, to say the least, he’s a great player and very willing to help me out if it’s needed, to be able to share the right wing with him and Trent (Alexander-Arnold) as well is two players I’ve dreamed of playing with.”
🚨 NEW: Monday July 4 will mark the Reds' return to their AXA Training Centre in Kirkby and they will spend close to a week on Merseyside before flying out to Thailand for their first pre-season friendly. #awlive [liverpool echo] pic.twitter.com/nTLGT4rmcf
Anfield Watch Verdict
Like Elliott, we don't want to see Salah leave Liverpool anytime soon. The winger is a world-class footballer after all.
Salah has scored 156 goals and registered 63 assists in 254 appearances for the club's first-team.
The 29-year-old also averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.40 across the 2021-22 campaign.
Therefore, hopefully Salah and the Reds can reach an agreement sooner rather than later. Salah is one of our favourite players, so it would be heartbreaking if he left the club.
