Liverpool trigger option in defenders contract and begin talks with other star over new deal

The Anfield club have placed huge focus on tying down their first-team stars to new deals after their European success

Liverpool want to commit James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum to new contracts, according to the Athletic via the Mirror.

Liverpool are planning to dish out a fresh round of contracts after triggering a clause to extend Joel Matips deal

One stumbling block might be his salary, with Liverpool likely to seek a reduction in his current £120,000-a-week earnings given what could be dwindling involvement.

But he has made over 100 appearances for Jurgen Klopps side since the beginning of the 2017/18 season, and a contract upgrade would reflect his importance.
