Liverpool Have A Bright Future With The Promising List Of Players On Long-Term Contracts
Liverpool fans can rejoice at their team's winning efforts so far this season - and things are only looking to get better.
Scotland captain and Anfield favourite Andy Robertson joins an impressive list of long-term signings under Jurgen Klopp after putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal.
Klopp's vision at the club is becoming apparent after ensuring his top players are contracted to the club for years to come.
Goalkeepers Alisson Becker joined the Reds last summer and has since gone on to establish a first-team spot between the sticks.
Youngster Joe Gomez has appeared 13 times this season in the Premier League for Liverpool. Both players' futures are secured at the club until 2024.
Virgil van Dijk is undoubtedly one of Liverpool's top signings this season and Reds fans will be happy to hear that he, Fabinho, Sadio Mane Xherdan Shaqiri, Roberto Firmino and Anfield hero Mohamed Salah all have contracts at the club until 2023.

Klopp's football style has seen the Merseyside club climb to the top of the Premier League table, ahead of current champions Manchester City.
The Reds enjoyed some terrific performances last season, which saw them secure a top-four spot at Arsenal and Chelsea's expense.
But perhaps Liverpool's best showing was in the Champions League where they came excruciatingly close. Jurgen Klopp's team were beaten 3-1 by 13-time European Cup winners Real Madrid in the final.
Liverpool fans will be hoping to go two better this year and see out a tightly contested title race - as well as potentially winning the Champions League this time around.
They're up against German heavyweights Bayern Munich next month in the first knockout round.
Is the future for Liverpool bright? Can they do the double this year?
Let us know in the comments.
