Mohamed Salah becomes top earner with latest deal

And the holding midfielder has outlined his delight at putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

The 21-year-old impressed at the Groupama Stadium as he made 50 appearances in all competitions to help Lyon finish third in the Ligue 1 table and thus securing a place in the Champions League next season.

His returns of 44 strikes was also the second highest by a Liverpool player in a single season, in the history of the club, only behind Ian Rush's tally of 47.

Salah returned to action for the first time in three weeks against Russia at the World Cup in their group match last month but was a shadow of the player that had dazzled for Liverpool despite scoring against both the Russians and then the Saudi Arabians.

New Liverpool signing Fabinho has sat down to talk about the feeling of playing for the club.

He said: "I've been following the club closely in the last few years and they've improved greatly under Jurgen Klopp".

However, the tide has clearly turned this summer, and despite the widespread interest in Salah from Europe's leading clubs following a superb year of personal success, the English Premier League's Player of the Year has committed his future to the club that has provided the platform for his rise to prominence.

"I know we can achieve a lot of things together [and] I'm looking forward to seeing you".

"Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment".

If they do that, coupled with the club's standing as one of the most famous names in the global game, they can be confident about keeping players like Salah rather than selling them on, as was the case with Luis Suarez four years ago and Philippe Coutinho in January. "He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special".

"Then, when we were close to finalising the deal, he started giving me some tips about life in the city".

However, Salah's journey to the top has been long and hard, and many baulked at the reported figure that Liverpool paid AS Roma for his services last summer. "This has to be the attitude individually and collectively".

Switzerland are pinning their hopes on Shaqiri to steer their side to the World Cup quarter-finals.
