“I don’t hope so” – Watch Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp takes final decision as ‘Juventus make new Roberto Firmino bid’
This summer, Roberto Firmino has drawn attention from all across Europe, and Juventus is allegedly interested in signing the Liverpool star.
Roberto Firmino is still a target for Juventus, even if it seems doubtful that Liverpool will consider any proposals for the attacker.
After Sadio Mane left Merseyside to join Bayern Munich, the Brazilian striker, who only managed five Premier League goals in 20 appearances last season, may follow suit.
The front three that won the Champions League and Premier League in 2019 and 2020 included the Brazilian.
At the beginning of the month, The ECHO stated that Liverpool was not expected to seriously contemplate selling Firmino.
Italian teams are showing interest in the forward, and with Paulo Dybala’s departure, Juventus may have room for the 30-year-old.
According to TuttoJuve, Juventus submitted an official proposal for the forward, but their $19.5 million offer was turned down.
Due to the loss of Dybala, the Turin club is looking for a deeper-lying forward to complement Dusan Vlahovic.
However, Firmino’s low transfer value makes him more valuable to Klopp at Liverpool for the upcoming season as opposed to transferring him for what would almost certainly be a pittance.
As the transfer window enters its final month, Klopp has already made clear the club’s position. The Reds manager told Sky Sports:
“If nobody wants to leave, we are done. Or if a bad injury comes in…I don’t hope so. But Liverpool fans can now start focusing on other things.”
Following the rise of Diogo Jota and Luiz Diaz last season, the attacking line at Anfield has changed over the past year, with Mohamed Salah and Firmino now facing stiff competition for a spot in the renowned front three.
Salah, an Egyptian winger, recently signed a new deal, committing his future to the team moving forward.
Calvin Ramsay of Aberdeen and Fabio Carvalho of Fulham have already improved the team, and given Liverpool’s recent pragmatism in the transfer market, there is little possibility that any hasty decisions will be made for the remainder of this transfer window.
