Roberto Firmino’s departure from Liverpool was confirmed last week and the Brazilian received an incredible ovation from the Anfield faithful when coming off the bench at the weekend.

Firmino bagged the last of seven goals in an incredible 7-0 thrashing of Manchester United in what was a very emotional moment between Firmino and supporters.

Several candidates have emerged in the race to sign Firmino on a free transfer in the summer.

Wayne Veysey of Football Insider reports that Barcelona and Inter Milan are the front runners to sign Firmino.

Veysey writes that a Saudi Arabian club is preparing a massive contract offer for Firmino, who will have no shortage of takers in the summer.

Firmino’s agent Roger Wittmann stated last week that the 31-year-old will refuse to hold talks with other clubs until the end of the season out of respect to Liverpool.

Firmino has 10 goals and 5 assists this campaign whilst dealing with several injuries.
