Liverpool’s plans for the future haven’t stopped with Sadio Mane‘s new contract, with three more deals in the offing according to a reliable journalist.
Despite his hot-and-cold form so far this season, this is an excellent boost for Jurgen Klopp‘s side having tied down one of the club’s most important players.
And while Liverpool are expected to remain quiet in the January transfer market, more new contracts can be expected in the near future.
At just 21, 24 and 20 respectively, Gomez, Robertson and Alexander-Arnold can be part of Liverpool’s defence long into the future.
And it would be difficult to argue that their fine form doesn’t deserve recognition, with only leaders Man City shipping as few goals in the league.
Gini Wijnaldum could be expected to enter talks in the near future, too, with his current deal reportedly due to expire in 2021.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have extended their agreement with throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark, BBC Sport confirmed on Thursday night.
Gronnemark, who works extensively with Gomez, Robertson and Alexander-Arnold, will now remain with the club until at least June.
“The extension documents Liverpool’s satisfaction with my work and the fact that they recognise and acknowledge the results we’ve achieved with the players,” he explained.
“I hope that our hard work will be rewarded with good results when the season comes to an end in May.”
