Sadio Mane has sparked fears within Anfield that he could be ready to move out this summer.
The £150 million-rated ($A270m) Senegalese star, 28, has yet to offer any indication that he will sign a new deal offered him nine months ago.
And boss Jurgen Klopp is growing anxious over the situation.
He has told the Liverpool hierarchy that even if Mane is contracted until 2023 he wants a firm answer on whether is he prepared to commit for longer.
He is expected to sign it once he and his side complete their march to the Premier League title with their season restarting in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
That would put him on £220,000 ($A400,000) a week and make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.
Mane stands to make the same money if he puts pen to paper.
But Real Madrid want him and he is also on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar.
One possibility that is understood to being discussed within Liverpool is the possibility that Mane could figure in a swap deal plus £200m ($A361m) for French superstar Kylian Mbappe.
