Liverpool fans react as Roberto Firmino is linked to Barcelona

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino’s name has been mentioned as a possible transfer target for Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that the Spanish heavyweights have drawn up a shortlist of names to replace Luis Suarez at the Nou Camp, with the 32-year-old Uruguayan coming to the end of his playing career.

Apparently Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe would be the ideal signing, and England stars Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford are also being considered.

Firmino’s name was also mentioned by the report, but the Brazilian is thought not to be a priority for the Catalans.

That will come as a relief to Reds fans, who lost Philippe Coutinho to the same club in January 2018.

Firmino has become a vital player for Liverpool over the last few years and has stepped up considerably since the departure of his compatriot.

A firm fans’ favourite, Firmino is regularly praised for his selfless style and intelligent play which allows the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to flourish at Anfield.
