Roger Wittman, Roberto Firmino’s agent, provided an update on his current situation to Sky Germany.
Wittman was speaking to Sky Germany on the futures of two of his players. Roberto Firmino and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
In an interview with the official Liverpool magazine recently, Firmino expressed his love of playing for the Reds. He states that “it’s incredible playing high-level football here with great players, stars of the game”. Firmino then goes on to say “I’m happy here and I intend to stay here and help Liverpool FC”.
Wittman told Sky that ‘we’re on the right track’.
Speaking to Sky Wittman said:
“It’s a very long relationship between Roberto and Liverpool. Roberto feels good. At the moment we’re in a great exchange and in February we’ll probably know where the journey is going. But Roberto also has to have a say in order to reach an agreement with Liverpool. We’re on the right track. We’re having really good talks with Liverpool. They’re a superbly positioned club.”
Florian Plettenburg has now reported that Firmino is ‘on the verge’ of signing a new contract.
