Roberto Firmino’s Liverpool contract ends in the summer, but a fantastic first half of the season has led to calls for an extension.
There is speculation that 31-year-old forward Firmino will end his eight-year stint on Merseyside when his current contract with the Reds expires at the end of the season.
Darwin Nunez was brought to Liverpool from Benfica for £64 million this summer.
The 23-year-old was regarded as the obvious candidate to lead Liverpool’s line for many years to come, and Firmino was anticipated to play a less central role.
However, the Brazilian has led Liverpool’s scoring chart in the Premier League after an impressive start to the season, guiding the club through a difficult stretch without disaster.
There have been calls for him to stay at Anfield for a longer period of time because of this performance.
Reds fans welcomed news earlier this week that Firmino will be offered a new contract soon.
Firmino would still be able to enter into a pre-contract agreement with an overseas club come January if a new contract is not signed by then.
Despite those reports that fresh terms are in the offing and confirmation from Jurgen Klopp in November that talks are underway.
Additionally, Al-Nassr appears to be hoping to persuade the striker to move to Dubai, according to The Mirror.
The club in Riyadh is of the opinion that a combination of a highly lucrative offer from themselves.
Uncertainty regarding regular minutes at Liverpool could persuade Firmino to sign one more significant contract before retiring.
Al-Nassr already has David Ospina, Luis Gustavo, and Vincent Aboubakar of Cameroon among its notable players.
They have also been linked to a big deal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Dubai.
Some reports say that the deal would cost £200 million per year, but the Portuguese veteran says that’s not true.
Due to his absence from Brazil’s World Cup squad, Firmino is currently in Dubai with the Reds.
Klopp’s team flew out for a warm-weather training camp and will play two friendlies today at 2 p.m. against AC Milan and Lyon.
The season’s key contract decision-making period is almost here, with January just around the corner.
Jürgen Klopp’s midfield options could look very different next summer for Liverpool, who are going through a period of change.
At the end of the season, the contracts of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keta will all come to an end.
For the latter two, who joined for a total of £83 million (€96 million/$101 million).
Judgment day is approaching with the same level of uncertainty that has been present throughout their careers on Merseyside.
The fact that Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg tweeted.
Liverpool and Roberto Firmino were in talks suggests that Klopp will soon need to make two difficult decisions.
