Liverpool: Fans fume at Roberto Firmino after James Pearce remarks - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino has received widespread criticism in recent weeks and Tuesday was no exception.

The 29-year-old found himself as the topic of conversation for The Athletic journalist James Pearce, who believes that the Reds must go and buy an out-and-out number nine next summer and give Firmino a rest.

Despite Firmino’s recent slump in form, he still has six goals and five assists to his name from 25 appearances, but it is significantly less than what teammate Mohamed Salah has accumulated.

The Brazil international, who earns £180k-per-week at Anfield, has only managed to achieve a match rating of over seven once in the past five games and is without a goal in his last six outings (Whoscored).

Should Liverpool sell Firmino?

No

With this in mind, supporters flocked to discuss Pearce’s words, with some even bizarrely insisting that Firmino should be sold all together.
