Roberto Firmino has been at Anfield since 2015 and is in no hurry to take on a new challenge.


What did Roberto Firmino say?

The Brazilian player continues to generate away conversations at Liverpool, with Serie A giants Bianconeri saying he is interested in acquiring his services, but the 30-year-old frontman says his intention is to stay at Anfield. The Brazilian striker is entering the final year of his contract with the PL heavyweights and has seen Uruguayan footballer Darwin Nunez drafted to eventually fill his boots.

No renewal of his terms on Merseyside has been discussed, which means Roberto Firmino could hit free agency in the summer of 2023, but the South Americans insist he is not pressing for it and would be happy to spend a new campaign renewing his connection with Liverpool.

The Brazilian international has been on the red books since 2015, with 328 appearances over seven years. Roberto Firmino has 98 goals to his name, leaving him with just a couple of short-lived centuries, and is determined to stay at the club that has allowed him to claim PL, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and club World Cup medals.

Roberto Firmino spoke about his future plans, that he loves this team, this city and the fans. According to Firmino, he is here. Roberto Firmino wants to stay.


What did Klopp say about Roberto Firmino?

Liverpool may have been tempted to cash in on Roberto while they still can, especially after investing in Darwin as another No. 9 to lead their line, but Klopp has said he intends to keep the seasoned figure in his plans. Jurgen Klopp said when asked about the Brazilian’s transfer rumors that Roberto Firmino is crucial to them, the heart and soul of this team, the way they’ve played in recent years was only possible because of Bobby.

That’s why Klopp is really happy that he has been able to train most of the time here in pre-season so far. Everything looks very good, so the German is absolutely fine. According to Jurgen, there is no doubt about Bobby’s quality. They will see everything else as this year goes by, but it is important for them. Roberto started the 2022 Community Shield for the Reds by replacing him in the second half as Nunez found purpose in a 3-1 win over Man City.
