The forward is currently tied with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in third, one behind Danny Ings in second and two behind leading scorer Jamie Vardy.
Yet it’s not just the remainder of the campaign Salah is thinking about, he wants to stay at Anfield for the long haul.
The Reds were crowned Premier League champions on Thursday night after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

“We have adapted well as a team and our understanding is perfect. If this continues, we can achieve more.
