Despite the Reds’ defence showing a marked improvement since the Dutch defender’s arrival, he will not secure the bonus for this season, requiring six more clean-sheets to reach a minimum of 15.

The centre-back will be entitled to £375,000 if there are 18 clean sheets next season, £500,000 for 20 and £750,000 for 22.

Van Dijk is said to be earning a basic weekly wage of £124,658 at the Merseyside club, and received £6 million from Liverpool as a signing bonus before making the January move official.

Liverpool will also have to fork out £4 million once Van Dijk reaches 150 appearances for the club, as long as they - ambiguously - ‘regularly’ finish in the top four, too.

Van Dijk will also net himself £20,000 per goal or assist he contributes, which is usually an incentive included exclusively in a forward’s contract.

Should the Reds choose to sell the defender before his contract runs out, Van Dijk will be entitled to a £5m loyalty bonus for honouring his deal.

Meanwhile, the added cost to Liverpool of Salah’s sensational debut season is just £2.5 million, with the Egyptian reaching his bonus-target of 35 goals and assists for the campaign in February.
