Jurgen Klopp on the absence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah was rudely offered the chance to sign with Tottenham Hotspur if he turned down a new deal with Liverpool.

Tottenham legend Teddy Sheringham said the Anfield star would be welcome in north London amid his Merseyside saga.

Salah, whose current deal expires in 18 months, has been in negotiations with Liverpool for months but the Reds have yet to respond to his demands.

The 29-year-old insisted he is not asking for “crazy” new terms, but reports have suggested Salah’s party is demanding a salary of more than £300,000 a week.

With no decision made, Sheringham – who also played for Manchester United – weighed in on the debate, joking that Spurs would be able to pull off a surprise strike.

Sheringham joked that Salah should join Tottenham

He told TalkSport, “Salah is the man. He continues to produce. I’m amazed that it took so long to make a package for him.”

“He came out public and said he wanted to stay. You want to think Liverpool want him to stay. Get it done or he can go down to Tottenham!”

Salah’s contract has been the subject of debate in the Premier League since the start of the season, with Liverpool star Jamie Carragher recently claiming fans would never forgive the Anfield board if they let the winger – who scored a staggering 23 goals in the match. 26 games this term – to leave Merseyside.

“Salah wants to be paid like any great player in the Premier League or world football, and why wouldn’t he? He deserves it, we are talking about one of the best players in the world,” Carragher said on Sky. Sports.

“This is not an issue of giving the player exactly what he wants, but Liverpool Football Club and his owners, I don’t think they will forgive if Salah leaves this club in the summer or within 18 months.

“He is a legend at Liverpool, and one of the club’s greatest players ever, and they should be ranked sooner rather than later.”

Meanwhile, coach Jurgen Klopp remained optimistic about the situation, despite the Reds’ suffering so far in Salah’s absence, as the Egyptian player was away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

“We know, I know Mo wants to say, ‘We want Mo to stay,'” Klopp said on Wednesday.

“This is where we are. These things take time, I can’t change them, sorry. I think everything is in a good place.”

After being pushed by a reporter to clarify in order to allay fans’ fears, the German confirmed: “I’m very optimistic about it but I don’t think it’s fair to speak on behalf of the fans. The fans are not as nervous as you are.

“They know the club and they know the people who deal with things here. I think it’s a positive thing but as long as it’s not done we can’t say anything about it. Good conversations, that’s what I can say.”
