Liverpool has rejected a deal worth Â£30m for Senegal forward Sadio Mane from Bayern Munich.
The club is expected to want about â‚¬50m (Â£42.8m) for 30-year-old Mane consideringÂ Bayern’s similar valuation of 33-year-old Robert Lewandowski.
Both Mane and Lewandowski both have one year remaining on their current deals.
Mane, now 30, has scored 120 goals for Liverpool since arriving from SouthamptonÂ for a fee of Â£36m in June of 2016, helping the club to success in the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League in 2020.
The Senegalese footballer signed a contract extension with Liverpool in 2018, which expires at the end of next season.
The club also needs to make a decision on the future of Egyptian star forward Mohamed Salah, who will also be a free agent in the summer of 2023.
According to BBC Sport, Salah has said he intends to remain at Liverpool next season, but Barcelona are rumored to want to sign him as a free agent at the end of his deal.
