Jurgen Klopp states it is not a secret that Liverpool are planning to secure the future of Sadio Mane at the Anfield.
25-year-old, who joined the Reds from Southampton in 2016, scored his first hat-trick for his club in a 5-0 annihilation of Porto in their Champions League last-16 clash.
Senegalese footballer’s contract runs until 2021, but according to the British media, he could be awarded a new contract.
The Merseyside club start the weekend on a third position in the Premier League standings, but a victory would get them above second-placed Manchester United, who have a tough match anticipating versus Chelsea on Sunday.
Klopp stated: ‘I am pleased we didn’t have to play right after the game against Porto because it would have been quite challenging from this big result and a good game from our side,’
‘Now we want to get some points, but it is truly a big job to do. They (West Ham) on the form table, last 15 games, I think they are sixth.’
“Since David Moyes, a lot of things have improved. They are getting good results, Arnautovic flying. We are looking forward to it 100%, but we know it’ll be hard.”
