Report – Liverpool prepared to agree £25.2million fee to secure star exit
Liverpool superstar, Roberto Firmino, is heavily linked with a move away from Anfield.
Earlier in the day, we covered a story (via Corriere dello Sport) claiming that Juventus are close to the Selecao forward, who is willing to move to Italy.

As per another report, exclusively covered by Calcio Mercato, Firmino’s agency, Rogon, is looking to take him away from the Reds so that he can push for a place in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup.
The renowned Italian news source have mentioned that Liverpool are prepared to sell their prized asset if the asking fee of £25.2million (30 million euros) is met.
Juve could imagine a 4-2-3-1 formation in which Bobby would play in the No.10 role with Vlahovic as the main center forward and the likes of Chiesa and Di Maria on the flanks.
However, it is reported that the Old Lady can only complete the deal for a figure of around 20 million euros at max.
Jurgen Klopp has recently confirmed his stance on transfers. He told Sky (via The Mirror):
“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,“
Thus far, Firmino has earned 55-caps for the senior national side but it must be remembered that he has not made a single appearance for the 5-time World Champions in the last 12 months.
Have your say – Who should Klopp sign if Bobby does end up leaving Liverpool?

My biggest concern with losing Roberto Firmino is that Liverpool won’t replace him! We’ve already lost three wingers and signed one and if we lose Firmino we will need three more quality wingers to sign. A team like the Reds needs backup in attack, such as Antony from Ajax and two more because the midfield is so bad which is letting the backline and forward line down. Most of whom are too old, often injured, lots of inexperienced academy players in the first team and generally a very poor midfield, one of the worst in the EPL.
With comments like this from Klopp: “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,“ This is the reason why I predict that Liverpool will win no silverware next season and will finish 3rd behind Man City and Spurs respectively. On Saturday they’re going to get thrashed by City in the Community shield; City 5 : 0 Liverpool.
