Jurgen Klopp keen to tie Liverpool star down to new contract

Posted by

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly keen to keep Roberto Firmino at the club and wants to offer the Brazilian forward a new short-term contract.

This is according to Fabrizio Romano, with the reporter explaining that Firmino’s agent has also recently spoken about wanting to extend his stay at Anfield.

Firmino has been a key player for Liverpool down the years, and he surely still has a role to play even if he’s no longer a guaranteed starter for the Reds.

The 31-year-old has nine goals in all competitions so far this season, and his experience could continue to make him an important part of Klopp’s squad during these difficult times.

Liverpool will surely be overhauling the squad in other areas, so keeping some continuity might be a good idea, with Firmino seeming content enough to no longer be starting games week in, week out.

Firmino joined LFC from Hoffenheim back in 2015 and has gone on to score over 100 goals for the club, contributing to winning trophies like the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup.
