During his pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s tie against Leicester City, Jurgen Klopp has reiterated his desire to keep Roberto Firmino at Liverpool FC.
“We’re in talks with Bobby and I want him to stay. No impact.”
Firmino has been a firm favourite of Klopp’s since his arrival to the club for the 2015/16 season. His high pressing intensity leading from the front has come to personify the German’s ‘heavy-metal football’ approach.
“I want Roberto Firmino to stay at Liverpool and sign a new deal with us.”
Negotiations are currently taking place for a short-term extension. Firmino’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
