Mohamed Salah admits he has yet to be approached by Liverpool over extending his contract at the club, which expires in the summer of 2023

Mo Salah says no one from Liverpool has approached him as yet to discuss the possibility of signing a new contract at the club.

Salah's current deal at Anfield runs until the summer of 2023 but the Egypt forward says there is currently no prospect of an extension.

The 28-year-old has previously hinted his future could lie in Spanish football, with Barcelona and Real Madrid often touted as potential destinations for Salah if he were to depart Merseyside.

When asked about a potential new deal at Liverpool, Salah told Sky Sports: "No one is talking to me about that, so I can't say much about that.

"No one in the club is talking to me about anything so I do not know."

In January, Salah said he wanted to stay and continue to break records for as long as possible at Anfield and claimed he was "100 per cent" committed to winning more trophies at the club.

He reiterated that desire when asked about the remaining ambitions in his career.

"I said before that I want to win the Premier League again, I want to win the Champions League again," he added.

"It's a great thing to win, I'm just trying to win it again and again. Part of our job is to win trophies."

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma for a then club-record transfer fee in 2017 and the 28-year-old has scored 120 goals in 193 matches for the club in all competitions.

Klopp: Van Dijk can't be rushed back

Virgil van Dijk's recovery and return to full fitness will determine whether he can play for the Netherlands at Euro 2020 - but he cannot be rushed back insists Jurgen Klopp.

The 29-year-old had surgery on a knee sustained against Everton in October and the Liverpool boss has previously thought June's European tournament would be too early for the defender.

And Netherlands coach Frank de Boer has also said he will not count on the team's captain being ready for the tournament but it would be a "fantastic bonus" if he is fit.

Asked who will decide if Van Dijk can play at the Euros, Klopp said: "Virgil's knee. I don't want to hold him back, but you can't force it as well.

"You can't after 10-11 months out, train a week and play football. That's just not possible, it shouldn't be possible.

"Nobody holds him back, I can promise all the people in the Netherlands or wherever. But we can't force it as well and we'll not. We speak about a player and his career."

Van Dijk is yet to return to full training with Liverpool but is making steady progress.

"He just tries to get fit as quick as possible," Klopp added.

"In the moment, nobody knows when that (his return) will be exactly but you can imagine it'll be tight with the Euros ... because he's not in team training yet and will not be in the next weeks. So, I don't know.

"But in the end, it's the decision of Virgil and he'll get massively influenced by the feeling in his knee."
