Liverpool transfer: Liverpool and Barcelona may complete January ‘swap deal that could end up favouring both’ clubs
Liverpool FC will remain in the transfer section of many newspapers in the coming months and with alot of players coming to the end of their contracts, it seems we may be nearing a swap deal for one.
As reported by Sport (translated from Spanish): ‘After a summer where Memphis Depay had one foot out of the club but ended up staying, the Dutchman might not finish the season with the Catalans.
“In England they say that he might move to Liverpool in exchange for Roberto Firmino coming to Camp Nou.
‘A trade that could end up favouring both. Firmino has lost protagonism at Anfield, where he has just a few months left on his deal, while there are plenty of forwards ahead of Memphis in the pecking order. Like Firmino, he could leave for free next summer’.
With Liverpool superstar Bobby Firmino entering the final year of his Anfield contract, The Brazilian has three choices: pursue a new contract, leave in January for a fee, or depart in the summer for free.
This winter will be the last chance for Jurgen Klopp and the club administration to profit financially from the 30-year-old player.
It’s unclear whether we will make a move to extend a new contract to our No. 9, and there is also doubt around Naby Keita’s future.
Barcelona star Memphis Depay, is a player with Premier League experience and also in a similar position to our much-loved forward, as he too has entered the final year of his deal.
We may be interested in a move for the 28-year-old due to his international friendship with Virgil van Dijk and his successful track record in domestic European football.
This summer, there will be a ton of transactions to finalize, and FSG must make numerous judgments about which players they should back to remain at the club or join it.
