Reports; Liverpool Fc make key decision on Roberto Firmino amidst interest from Barcelona
Liverpool star Roberto Firmino is seen as a potential option for Barcelona in their attacking department which is currently going through a rough time.
Barcelona forward Sergio Aguero retired last month with a heart condition while Ousmane Dembele has also been asked to leave the club this month.
Young Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati has been ruled out for six more weeks after he picked up another injury during their Copa del Rey loss to Athletic Bilbao.
With all these crises Barcelona is facing, the need for a reliable forward is on-demand with Roberto Firmino possessing the qualities they need.
Roberto Firmino has a year and a half left on his contract with the Merseysiders and, at 30, might as well seek a change of environment after more than six years in the Premier League.
But there’s a problem – Liverpool does not want to let go of their Brazilian Samba boy at a time when both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are absent from the squad.
Talks about his future will take place in the next months. His relationship with Klopp is still great.
Although reports were coming from England that any transfer would amount to €20 million it won’t happen before the summer.
Firmino signed for Liverpool from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in 2015 for £29 million and has since played a key role at the club.
With 94 goals and 73 assists in 311 games in all competitions, the Brazilian has been at the forefront of their ambitions, lifting four titles, including the Premier League in 2020.
