The Egyptian’s current deal at Anfield expires in the summer of 2023, and the Reds have been trying to tie him down to a new contract.
Liverpool are yet to agree to Salah’s wage demands to sign on fresh terms, although negotiations between the player and club have dragged on for some time now.
Former top flight striker Agbonlahor believes that something is not right between Salah and his boss Klopp, as the forward’s body language suggested that he was not happy with not being in the starting eleven for Liverpool’s 2-1 win against Aston Villa on Tuesday night.
Agbonlahor added that given Manchester City new boy Erling Haaland is also set to pocket £375,000 a week, Salah will not back down from his own salary demands, and would rather leave Liverpool.
“I could see his body language yesterday on the bench”, Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
“The camera kept going to him, did not look happy.
“And when he finally came on, when I looked at him, he did not look happy, shaking his head as if like “I am only getting 20 minutes.”
“And players like Salah want goals, does he not?
“Son [Heung-Min] is two goals away from him, Salah will want to win top goalscorer and something does not seem right between him and Klopp for me.
“We have seen the figures that are reported for Haaland’s contract, £375,000 a week.
“Salah will be looking at that and saying “I am not changing my terms, like I want over £300,000 a week, you give it to me or I am going.”
Salah has been on fire for Liverpool this season and fans will be hoping the club will be able to sort out his contractual situation soon.
