It’s been confirmed that Roberto Firmino is leaving Liverpool at the end of the season.

One player Klopp is looking at to replace him is the 18 year old wonderkid, Iker Bravo.

According to reports from CaughtOffside, Liverpool are keen on bringing the striker in for next seasons campaign.

However, they will have to fight Newcastle for his signature, who have also been heavily linked with him.

Bravo is currently on loan to Real Madrid Castilla, who play in the second tier in Spanish football.

As he’s on loan to a Real Madrid club, the Spanish giants have the option to sign him for €6 million from Bayer Leverkusen.

This season Bravo has scored 2 goals in 17 appearances. He made his full senior Real Madrid debut against Celtic in the Champions League earlier this year.

Whoever replaces Firmino will have big shoes to fill, but Bravo looks like a talented player with great touch and vision.
