Our resident Liverpool supporting punters are already getting excited about their Capital One Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday, however the news from Spanish outlet Fichajes has dampened their spirits somewhat!
The publication suggests that Paris Saint Germain are eyeing a shock deal for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino, as a potential replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
This news caused a bit of a fracas between the Reds fans here in the Tavern, with the majority of punters saying it would be nightmare if the Brazilian attacking midfielder departed Anfield for PSG.
Firmino has been a pivotal part of Jurgen Klopp’s side this season and it would be a surprise to see the player depart the Merseyside club, but as our landlord quips, anything can happen in football!
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern feels that if Liverpool lose Roberto Firmino to PSG, it would be a major travesty for the side, and would undoubtedly dent their chances of winning the Premier League trophy next season.
Liverpool fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you be gutted to lose Firmino? Just how important is he to you? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
