Fan favourite Roberto Firmino has entered the last year of his contract, with the striker able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club from January, and there is news in regards to an update on his current negotiations with the club.
According to UOL, Liverpool are only looking at offering Firmino a one or two year contract extension at most and the Liverpool directors currently have no interest in offering the Brazilian international a longer term extension.
Firmino, signed from German side Hoffenheim in 2015, was an integral part of the Liverpool frontline when he formed arguably the best strikeforce in the world alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. However, his fortunes have fluctuated up and down since with the likes of Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott competing with him for a regular first team spot.
Despite that, Firmino has been an important member of the squad and a favourite of Jurgen Klopp so it will be interesting to see whether the striker will be able to put in some impressive performances over the coming games to convince the powers-that-be to offer a longer term contract. If not, we may not be seeing Firmino at Anfield for much longer.
