Liverpool: ‘Giant offer’ needed to lure Roberto Firmino away

Liverpool: ‘Giant offer’ needed to lure Roberto Firmino away -Liverpool News

Liverpool reportedly have no intention of selling legendary forward Roberto Firmino this summer due to Jurgen Klopp’s affection for the player.

The Lowdown: Firmino linked with Juve move

In the last few days, the Brazilian has been linked with a summer exit from Anfield, with Serie A giants Juventus emerging as potential suitors.

Firmino’s current Liverpool deal expires at the end of this season, at which point he will be able to move elsewhere on a free transfer, should no new contract have been agreed.

Thankfully, it doesn’t look as though the 30-year-old will be departing in the coming weeks, with the Brazilian press leaking news from the dressing room.

The Latest: Brazilian not going anywhere

According to the reliable Goal Brasil [via Sport Witness], Juve are still ‘monitoring’ Firmino this summer but he has Klopp’s ‘approval in the dressing room’ and won’t be going anywhere.

It is stated that a ‘giant offer’ could turn Liverpool’s head, but that seems unlikely.

The Verdict: Keep him for years

This is a positive update from a Reds perspective, with Firmino an undoubted Anfield legend, having registered 172 goal involvements (98 goals and 74 assists) in 327 appearances for the club, not to mention winning countless trophies along the way.

He has looked fresh in pre-season and may begin the new campaign in Klopp’s starting XI as Darwin Nunez adjusts to life at his new club, and he has years left in him at a high level.

For that reason, Firmino will hopefully extend his stay at Liverpool in the near future, continuing to cement his legendary status, even if he is more of a squad player moving forward. He has been hailed as ‘incredibly smart’ by Klopp, which speaks volumes about his brilliance and importance to the system.
