Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident that many of his top players will follow the example of striker Roberto Firmino and extend their stays at the Premier League club.

Brazil international Firmino, who has scored 27 goals and provided 16 assists in 50 games this season, has signed a long-term contract at the Merseyside club.

“It’s unbelievably important news for us. Really cool,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website. “This is one very important step for us. Absolutely. But even Roberto cannot play alone.

“In the moment, every player knows about our plans. He’s the first, but for sure, he won’t be the last.”

British media reported that new deals are in the pipeline for Liverpool forwards Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah, along with defenders Ragnar Klavan and Alberto Moreno.

The goals of Salah, Firmino and Mané have helped Liverpool up to third in the league table and into the Champions League semi-finals.

They travel to AS Roma for the second leg on Wednesday with a 5-2 advantage, before a league trip to Chelsea on Sunday.
