Barcelona provide an update regarding Roberto Firmino

Fichajes claims that Barcelona is the frontrunner to sign Roberto Firmino from Liverpool during the next summer transfer window. Several teams, including Real Madrid, are interested in signing the veteran striker.

The Brazilian has been an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad, playing a pivotal role in the Reds’ run of eight consecutive championships. Additionally, Firmino salvaged a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa in his farewell game for Liverpool at Anfield with a goal.

The fact that he was sent off in front of a packed house at Anfield after the final whistle speaks volumes about his stature as a player. The 31-year-old’s time on Merseyside may be drawing to a close, but his football career is only getting started.

He is one who uses his intelligence and influence to benefit more than just themselves. Others, though, believe that Firmino still has many productive years ahead of him. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid have shown interest in a transfer.

The Catalan giants are interested in signing Firmino as a striker to provide depth for Robert Lewandowski. Adding a player of his calibre for nothing is like hitting the jackpot.

When it comes to signing Roberto Firmino from Liverpool, Barcelona has the upper hand on Real Madrid

Firmino isn’t only a good shooter, he can also play the position of a number 10 by dropping back to receive the ball. He is a game-changer for a savvy coach because of his ability to connect the midfield and the offence.

The Brazilian also has a history of playing well in the biggest games and a knack for scoring game-winning goals. After all, his 2019 Club World Cup achievements left a lasting impression. Last season, Barcelona lacked such game-changers in Europe, which led to numerous disappointing losses.

The Catalans may not be able to afford Vitor Roque due to the club’s poor financial standing and rumours of a possible Lionel Messi return. Firmino is a far more skilled player who can be had at no cost. There will be no shortage of bids for him. Barcelona may come to regret not acting sooner.

The Liverpool star still has a lot left in the tank and would be a great addition to any of the big teams in Europe, including Barcelona and Real Madrid. Even if Los Blancos are still interested, the Blaugrana have the upper hand in the battle to sign him. Whether or if his departure from Anfield benefits Barcelona remains to be seen.
