ABC News' contract negotiations with "Good Morning America" co-host Josh Elliot may have just gotten more difficult.

The New York Post said Friday that Elliot is currently in talks for a new deal, and the co-host is reportedly demanding a pay raise equivalent to that of Robin Roberts.

Roberts signed a new contract reportedly worth between $10 million and $14 million at the end of 2013. A source told the Post that Elliot is not asking for the same salary as Roberts, but "an equally significant bump in salary."

An ABC spokesperson confirmed to the newspaper that Elliot is in talks with the network, saying, "He is an important part of the GMA family, and we want him to stay part of the family." Click over to the Post for its report.

Indeed, it might be in the network's best interest to keep Elliot. He was part of the "GMA" team that bumped the "Today" show to become the country's number one morning show in 2012. "GMA" also just lost Sam Champion, who left the show to become a host and managing editor at the Weather Channel.
