Liverpool are trying to get their star player to sign a new contract, and his current contract expires in the summer of 2023.
When asked about it, Robertson said Sky sports: ‘I hope I can continue playing with him. I love playing with Mo and I love playing with all the guys around me and you don’t want anyone to leave.
Let’s leave it up to the club and Mo, I’m sure everyone is trying to come up with an agreement that can work for everyone.
The Egyptian has been in lethal form this season, scoring 15 goals in all competitions.
“ Hopefully they can come up with a solution because if he is not the best in the world, he is definitely in the discussion and they are the type of players that you want in this club, they are the type of players that the fans of his club deserve. ” . Hopefully he continues and can stay a little longer. ‘
Salah previously said that he wants to spend the rest of his career at Anfield, but that his future “depends on the club.”
Liverpool are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, and Salah’s exceptional form plays a key role in their initial success.
His performances had led many to believe that the 29-year-old is currently the best player in the world.

Robertson echoed those sentiments when he said: ‘He’s an incredible player and I think he’s the best in the world right now and he will want to continue like this.
‘He won’t want it for nine or 10 games, which he’s done so far, he will want to do it for a whole season like he’s done before and hopefully he can, because it gives us the best chance of scoring’ goals and trophies. ‘
Robertson was one of many Liverpool players who were able to commit to new deals at the club in recent months.
Salah has 20 months left on his contract and Liverpool will likely have to make him the highest-earning player in club history to get his signature on paper.
