Barcelona preparing move for Liverpool star Roberto Firmino
Barcelona appear to have a genuine interest in signing Roberto Firmino next summer.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Barcelona are preparing move for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino.
The Brazil international joined Liverpool from 1899 Hoffenheim for a fee in the region of 41 million euros in July 2015. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
Firmino has played 155 times for Liverpool since signing from 1899 Hoffenheim, scoring 53 goals and creating 41 assists in that time.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Brazil.
Roberto Firmino has also scored 8 goals in 26 games for his country.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Barcelona.
According to Teamtalk, “Barcelona are hatching a plan to lure Roberto Firmino away from Liverpool next summer. The path from Anfield to the Nou Camp has become a familiar one in recent seasons with Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho both making big-money transfers to the LaLiga giants. And it is the slowing down of Suarez that will prompt Barca to move for Firmino next summer, according to OK Diario. The director of the Spanish news outlet, Eduardo Inda, claims he has it on good authority that the Brazilian will be Barca’s No 1 transfer target next summer and they will prioritise his signing above any other. And Inda suggests contact may already have been made to snare Firmino to the Nou Camp in a deal that would likely set them back a fee in the region of €200m.”
